The NY Giants’ new-look roster takes the field for the first time Saturday night against the MetLife Stadium neighbor Jets in the exhibition opener for the upcoming 2021 NFL season
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The NY Giants open their exhibition slate on Saturday night, August 14 (8/14/2021) against the New York Jets in Week 1 of the NFL preseason at MetLife Stadium at 6:00 p.m.
Following a grueling few weeks of training camp, head coach Joe Judge’s NY Giants will take the field for the first time against a team wearing a different color jersey, in a first glimpse of one of the league’s most revamped rosters ahead of the 2021 campaign.
For NY Giants fans looking to get a glimpse of quarterback Daniel Jones, that will have to wait a week, as Judge revealed Thursday that Jones will be a healthy scratch for Saturday night’s contest.
In addition to Saturday night being the return of the NY Giants, it’s also the return of NFL betting:

NY Giants’ injury report for NFL preseason Week 1 vs. Jets:
While Giants running back Saquon Barkley returned to practice for the first time Monday, since tearing his ACL Week 2 of the 2020 season against the Chicago Bears, Judge has already ruled Barkley OUT for Saturday night’s contest.
Meanwhile, Kenny Golladay remains limited in practice due to a hamstring injury suffered last week, and would appear unlikely to play.
NY Giants vs. Jets prediction for NFL preseason Week 1:
This is a game that will be difficult to predict, as Judge has already made it clear that the Giants will treat this game as if it were the fourth preseason game, because there are only three exhibition contests this season, meaning expect lots of playing time from rookies, bottom of the roster players, and a brief glimpse — if that, at the Giants’ starters.
Still, given the Giants’ offseason additions and strong drafts over the past two years, the Giants as a one-point underdog is a decent value play on the preseason card.
