Could Jets, Giants commemorate 9/11?
The NFL will announce its 2011 regular-season schedule Tuesday night amid speculation that the league will mark the 10th anniversary of 9/11 by having the New York Jets play host to the Giants on Sept. 11 on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football,” according to the New York Post.
The schedule is contingent on the owners and players resolving the lockout in time. The tentative lineup will be revealed at 7 p.m. Tuesday on the NFL Network and the league’s website. FOXSports.com will also unveil the schedule at that time on its NFL home.
The NFL confirmed one game Monday, announcing the Chicago Bears will face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in London on Oct. 23. That game will be moved to Tampa Bay if the lockout is not resolved by Aug. 1.
There is strong speculation the defending champion Green Bay Packers will play host to the Bears in a rematch of the NFC title game on Sept. 8 in the annual Thursday opener.
