The annual Snoopy Bowl game gets a regular season encore following the preseason, as the Giants are set to visit the Jets at MetLife Stadium, and the date of the game has leaked ahead of the NFL’s annual schedule release.
According to a report from the New York Daily News, the Giants and Jets will meet Week 10.
While the Jets are the home team for this game, it is also a de-facto ninth “home” game as they will not need to travel away from East Rutherford for one of their eighth away games.
This game marks the first regular season meeting between Giants running back Saquon Barkley, chosen No. 2 overall in the 2018 NFL Draft, and Jets quarterback Sam Darnold, chosen one pick later.
The NFL will release the full schedule for the entire league on Wednesday night during a prime time special at 8:00 p.m. on NFL Network, but dates and times for games have begun to leak.
Here’s a look at what we know so far about the Giants’ schedule, and the remaining opponents that have yet to have the actual weeks of the games leaked:
Week 1: at Dallas Cowboys
Week 5: at New England Patriots
Week 10: at Jets
