\ The Giants will be the fifth straight Super Bowl champion to open the defense of its title with the kickoff game at home. The last non-championship team to host the game was the Redskins against the New York Jets in 2003. This will be the Redskins’ third primetime opener in six years since they played host to the Minnesota Vikings in the 2006 Monday Night Football opener.\

\ The Associated Press reported that the NFL is considering moving the game’s kickoff 90 minutes ahead from its usual 8:30 PM to accomodate the expected acceptance speech of all-but sure Presidental nominee John McCain at the Republican convention that night.\ \
