Friday Morning Update: Things Are Heating Up

The least you should know….

The Giants 2013 regular season schedule was released yesterday. They will open in Dallas on Sunday night Sept 8 at 8:30pm on NBC. They will play in a league-high five nationally-televised games.

The Manning Bowl will take place in Week 2 at Metlife Stadium at 4:15 on CBS.

The Giants’ bye is scheduled exactly at the midway point of the season – Week 9.

Today is the deadline for outside teams to sign RFA WR Victor Cruz to an offer sheet. After today, Cruz and his reps can only negotiate with the Giants.
