Twenty years ago on Sept. 10, 2001, the New York Giants played at the Denver Broncos. The next day the 9/11 attacks happened on the World Trade Center.

The NFL has scheduled the Giants to play host to the Broncos on Sept. 12, 20 years, and a day after the treacherous events.

The other New York team will see a familiar face in hostile territory as the Jets travel to Carolina, where they will face Sam Darnold and the Carolina Panthers.

The Green Bay Packers, with or without Aaron Rodgers, will travel to New Orleans, where the Saints start the post-Drew Brees era.
