Time change: Giants vs. Packers preseason game moved to 6 p.m.


The time of the New York Giants' third preseason game at home against the Green Bay Packers has been changed to 6 p.m. ET. It was previously scheduled for 8 p.m. The date (Saturday, Aug. 29) and location (MetLife Stadium) remain the same.

It will be the teams' first preseason matchup since Aug. 22, 1997 when the Giants faced the Packers in Madison, Wisconsin.


The Giants begin their preseason as the visiting team in their annual game against the Jets on Thursday, Aug. 13 at 7:30 p.m. It is the second year in a row and just the fourth time in the 52-year history of the preseason rivalry the teams will meet in the opening preseason game.

Last's year's 31-22 victory was the Giants' fourth in a row in the series which is tied, 25-25-1. The tie was in 1972.

The Giants are 37-30-3 in preseason openers since 1950.

The Giants will be on the road the following week when they face the Tennessee Titans in Nashville on Saturday, Aug. 22 at 8 p.m. eastern time, 7 p.m. local time.

This is the first preseason game pitting the Giants and Titans, though the franchises met four times in the preseason from 1971-90 when the Titans played in Houston and were called the Houston Oilers. The Giants won that 1990 meeting in the Astrodome, 13-10. The teams met in the annual Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio in 1985, a 21-20 Giants victory. The Oilers won the first two games in the preseason series.

The New England Patriots provide the opposition for the Giants' preseason finale for the 16th consecutive summer on Thursday, Sept. 3 at 7 p.m. in MetLife Stadium. The Giants lead the preseason series, 19-10. The two teams first met in the preseason in 1971.

In 2019, the Giants were 4-0 in preseason play, defeating the Jets, Bears, Bengals and Patriots.
