The New York Jets and New York Giants meet up in Week 1 of the 2021 NFL preseason at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford New Jersey — the home field of both teams. Kick off is at 7:30 p.m. ET.
The game will air on NBC 4 in the Giants market, while Jets broadcast info can be found here. Given that this is the preseason, we’ll see plenty of unknown and lesser known faces on the rosters. To keep track of who you’re watching checking out the Jets roster and the Giants roster.
The Jets were one of the worst teams in the NFL a year ago, finishing with just two wins on the board. A new head coach in Robert Saleh and new QB in second overall pick Zach Wilson from BYU should garner a lot of attention here. The Giants have massive issues along the offensive line that have reared their head again in camp. QB Daniel Jones needs to take a big step forward in year three, but the jury is out on if he’ll even be out there for this one with such questionable protection for him at the moment.
If you aren’t around a TV to check out this preseason contest, you’ll need to dig a little deeper for streaming options.
