Pittsburgh @ New York
Last Season Records: New York 4-12; Pittsburgh 8-8
What to Know
The New York Giants and the Pittsburgh Steelers are opening their 2020 seasons against one another at 7:10 p.m. ET on Monday at MetLife Stadium. Returning after a rocky 4-12 season, New York is aiming to prove that the past does not define them. Likewise, last year was nothing to brag about for Pittsburgh (8-8), so the squad is looking forward to a new start.
Two last-season defensive stats to keep an eye on: The Giants ranked third worst with respect to touchdowns allowed last year, where the team gave up 49. To make matters even worse for New York, Pittsburgh was the best in rushing touchdowns allowed, finishing the 2019 season giving up only seven.
The New York sideline is surely aware that they’re the underdogs in this one. We’ll soon see whether they can make the experts look bad.
