With vacations on everyone's mind this time of year, that got us thinking at Giants.com: What is the best road game for Giants fans in 2022?
Dan Salomone: London will never be confused for Green Bay, but that's where you will find the Giants and Packers on Oct. 9. One of the oldest rivalries in sports will be played across the Pond at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as the Packers become the 32nd and final NFL team to play in London. From a football perspective, the Giants have relished their overseas games. They are 2-0 in the United Kingdom, beginning in 2007 with the first regular season NFL game played outside of North America. From a travel perspective, fans could make it the launching point of a Eurotrip. Even better, make it the finale after hitting up Oktoberfest.
Lance Medow: Considering they visit their division rivals every season, we'll eliminate those three games, which leaves us with five options. When you take into consideration, the timing of the contest and location, visiting Seattle in Week 8 is the most attractive and if you love rain (like I do), it's even more appealing though that reputation is more in name than the reality of what happens in the Pacific Northwest. It's no different than Supersonics legend Shawn Kemp being called "The Reign Man." There's many different layers to that story so we'll have to save that for another Cover 3, but that shouldn't stop you from visiting Climate Pledge Arena, formerly Key Arena, where the Sonics used to call home.
Seattle provides the perfect combo of a seaport city with several other attractions, including the Space Needle, Seattle Center Monorail, Museum of Pop Culture and Seattle Great Wheel. The Giants also visit the Seahawks right in the middle of the season - late October prior to the bye week. By that time, we'll also have a better idea of both teams and, if not, you can blame it on Halloween as it's the ideal opportunity to hide behind a façade, both literally and figuratively.
Matt Citak: While traveling over the pond to go watch the Giants play in London does sound appealing, the easy choice here is the Giants' Week 1 matchup in Nashville, Tenn.
After living in Nashville for four years during college (shout out to my Vanderbilt Commodores), it is one of my favorite cities in the country. Let's start with the food. Of course, you get some amazing southern BBQ down there, but nothing beats Nashville Hot Chicken. The spicy, cayenne pepper chicken served on a piece of toast with a side of fries from Hattie B's is one of the things I miss most. Coming in a close second to the hot chicken is the live music. When you walk down Broadway, the main street in downtown Nashville, you'd be hard-pressed to find a bar that does not have a band playing live music. And don't get it twisted, just because it's known as the Country Music Capital of the World does not mean that is the only music you'll hear down there. Check out some of the honkytonks on Broadway, enjoy the live music, and maybe even ride a mechanical bull.
Although the city itself is enough of a reason to make the trek down to Nashville for Week 1, let's not forget the matchup against the Titans. Mike Vrabel's squad has made the playoffs in each of the last three seasons, and has taken home the AFC South crown the last two years. Derrick Henry is once again healthy, and Robert Woods and rookie Treylon Burks represent a very intriguing duo atop the WR depth chart. Throw in the fact that it's the first regular season game under head coach Brian Daboll, and the discussion on which one away game Giants fans should attend in 2022 is over.
