The Detroit Lions (1-0) at the Giants (0-1) at the Meadowlands in East Rutherford, N.J., Monday, Sept. 18 at 8:30 p.m. ET.
At the moment it looks to be a cloudy and probably cool night, with light winds and temperatures around 70. But keep one eye on pesky Tropical Storm Jose in the Atlantic Ocean, which forecasters think is heading in this general direction. The current forecast says it shouldn't impact the New York area until Tuesday, but if that changes it could at the very least amp up the winds.
WHAT IT MEANS
Probably nothing, because the New York fans and media wouldn't overreact if this Super Bowl-ready Giants team started 0-2, right? … Right?!? … OK, so the pressure is on, a little bit, for the Giants to get this thing going in the right direction -- especially on offense, and especially if Odell Beckham, Jr. plays. And if you don't think it's important, try to imagine what next week would be like if the Giants are 0-2, facing a short week and a game in Philadelphia, desperately trying to avoid 0-3. … On second thought, don't look ahead. It might be too depressing...
