The game was originally scheduled for Sept. 6, but moved it to avoid a conflict with President Barack Obama scheduled to speak at the Democratic National Convention that night. During the 2008 election, the league aired their season-opener against then-candidate John McCain's speech at the Republican National Convention.
The Super Bowl XLVI-champion New York Giants will host the season-opener at MetLife Stadium at 8:30 p.m. on NBC; the opponent has yet to be determined. The league typically releases its schedule in April.
