Any Given Wednesday


Great '60s sitcom, and part of an era's preoccupation with utter escapism.

The last time an NFL game was played on a Wednesday was in 1948 when the Rams beat the Lions, 44-7. That will change on Sept. 5 when the Giants host the Cowboys in the NFL opener.

It will be the first time the Giants play on a Wednesday in nearly 78 years. They are also 2-0 all-time in regular-season openers played on Wednesdays.

Here are the five games that the Giants played in the middle of the week:

Nov. 11, 1925
vs Rochester Jeffersons
Won, 13-0

*Sept. 17, 1930
at Newark Tornadoes
Won, 32-0

Nov. 5, 1930
at Portsmouth Spartans
Won, 19-6

Sept 30, 1931
at Portsmouth Spartans
Lost, 14-6

*Sept. 20, 1933
at Pittsburgh Pirates
Won, 23-2

Oct. 3, 1934
at Pittsburgh Pirates
Won, 14-12
