Are you ready for some WEDNESDAY Night Football!!!
The NFL has announced the season opener will be on Wednesday, September 5th. Instead of the customary Thursday night start. This move was done to avoid a conflict with President Obama's Thursday night speech at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte.
The NFL also confirmed that the Giants will host the opening game, keeping with the tradition of the Super Bowl Champion hosting the season's kickoff.
It's the first NFL game on a Wednesday since 1948.
