Baltimore team may face Giants in TV exhibition

March 14, 1996|By Mike Preston

NFL officials are close to completing an agreement that would have Baltimore play the New York Giants on national television in the team's second exhibition game, according to a league official.

The game would be played at Giants Stadium on either Aug. 10 or 11.

"It's a great opportunity for the league to showcase Baltimore, that the city is back in the league, as well as its new logo and colors," said the official. "And what better place for it to take place than before a national audience in New York."

A Baltimore team official also said other preseason opponents may include home games against Philadelphia, Green Bay and a game at Buffalo.
