It's hard to imagine, but the 2023 NFL preseason is almost here. Come Aug. 3, the Cleveland Browns and New York Jets will get things started, as they're all set to meet for the NFL Hall of Fame Game. Here, we'll get our first look at Aaron Rodgers with New York.

However, a lot of attention for people in East Rutherford is on Brian Daboll and the NY Giants. After an incredible season in 2022 in which the team went 9-7-1, big things are expected from the G-Men in '23. With that said, people can't wait for the Giants' preseason to get started in August too.

When does the preseason start for the NY Giants in 2023?

• NY Giants at. Detroit Lions on Aug. 11
• Carolina Panthers vs. NY Giants on Aug. 18
• NY Jets at NY Giants on Aug. 26

Come Aug. 11, the G-Men will get back on the field, heading to Detroit to take on the Lions at Ford Field. This will be a great opportunity for the new-look offense to showcase their stuff early on in this game - we don't expect Daniel Jones and Co. to be out there for significant time.

Then after that, Big Blue will return to MetLife Stadium on Aug. 18 to host the Carolina Panthers. Then the week after on Aug. 26, the preseason will close out with the Giants and Jets dancing in East Rutherford.

The two teams will also meet in the regular season, but the late August tilt will still be an intriguing one. As things stand, the excitement for Week 1 to get here keeps on climbing. Things are only going to be even higher once the preseason gets here.
