(NEW YORK) — The final game of the 2011 regular season will be the first game of the 2012 regular season.
The Super Bowl champion New York Giants will host the Dallas Cowboys during primetime Wednesday September 5.
The last time these two teams met it was for the NFC East Division crown. The Giants won 31-14 and eventually went on to win the Super Bowl.
The first game of the season is usually held on a Thursday, but it was moved so it doesn’t conflict with President Barack Obama‘s planned speech at the Democratic National Convention.
