MNF: Giants Beat the Jets 31 – 16.
The Giants beat the Jets 31 to 16 last night in the first “Monday Night Football” preseason game. But more importantly, it was the first game in the new $1.6 billion Meadowlands Stadium, which both teams will now call home.
During the game Eli Manning ran into his running back during a goal line play in the second quarter, then lost his helmet when he got hit by Jets linebacker Calvin Pace, which resulted in a 3-inch gash in Manning’s forehead. The cut required 12 stitches, but Eli is expected to make a full recovery.
