What should I know about MetLife Stadium?
Since its opening in 2010, MetLife Stadium, located in East Rutherford, New Jersey, has been the home to both the New York Giants and New York Jets. It can seat up to 82,550 people and hosts up to 20 NFL games each season, which is the highest number of games any stadium hosts. MetLife Stadium has also hosted major events including Super Bowl XLVIII and concerts by Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, Taylor Swift and U2. It is 2.1 million square feet in size and has club-seating capacity of over 10,000. There are 28,000 parking spaces at this venue and public transportation is available, including NJ Transit and easy access to and from Penn Station. It is also connected to Amtrak. The stadium has over 2,200 HDTVs and four major LED screens, one in each corner.
Who are the rivals to the New York Giants?
The New York Giants have many rivalries. One of their biggest is with the Philadelphia Eagles , both on and off the field (try Googling: Twitter battle between LeSean McCoy and Osi Umenyiora). The Dallas Cowboys are another in-division rival to the Giants, especially due to the Giants losing record against them (39-56-2). Washington is another team that the Giants play twice per year and their battles have featured many memorable moments, including Lawrence Taylor ending Washington Football Team quarterback Joe Theismann’s career in a 1985 game. Taylor sacked Theismann and gruesomely broke his leg. Finally, the New York Jets are a natural rival given that both teams represent New York City and share the same stadium.
