For Openers

Yes, Giants fans, we were all right. The league couldn't miss out on the opportunity to have the Super Bowl champs open up the NFL season at home on a Thursday night. What remained to be seen is who the opponent would be.

That question was answered on Wednesday when it was learned that the Washington Redskins will visit the Giants on Sept. 4 in a 7 p.m. kickoff.

Neither the Giants nor the NFL would confirm the news, but it's safe to say that you can put it on your calendar. The rest of the 2008 schedule will be released in early April.
