This is the New York football Giants preseason schedule for the 2013 NFL season. The Giants start the regular NFL season for 2013 with an away night game on Sunday, September 8, 2013, playing the Dallas Cowboys at the newly renamed AT&T Stadium.
The place used to be called Cowboys Stadium until Jerry Jones sold off the naming rights to AT&T to squeeze every last dollar he can from the team. To prepare for that first Sunday night game vs the Cowboys, the Giants will play the following four preseason games.
