Having one brand spanking new stadium between them won't ordinarily be a problem for the Giants and Jets. Except when it comes to playing its inaugural regular-season game.
They both want the honor of "opening" the stadium. They both made strenuous cases to the NFL. But in the end, and I guess this is the fairest way to go about things, the matter will be decided by a coin flip.
They'll do it at the stadium, probably at midfield, this week. And they might just invite fans of both teams to cheer, boo, maybe create a favorable wind current either way.
We'll flip you some details when they come out.
