NFL Owner 'Not Happy' With Team's Monday Night Game

The full schedule for the 2022 NFL season was announced earlier this month, and many teams expressed dissatisfaction. However, one team looks to be upset with the timing of their Monday Night Football matchup.

In an interview with the New York Post, New York Giants general manager John Mara complained about the league scheduling their Monday Night Football game against the Dallas Cowboys on September 26.

Religious Jews in observance of Rosh Hashanah can't watch television or attend games. Given that it's one of the Giants' biggest home games of the schedule

“I am well aware of that and not happy about it,” Mara said. “I made my feelings known to the league as soon as I saw the schedule.

We have always requested the league take the Jewish High Holy Days into consideration when formulating our schedule. Not sure why it happened this year.”

The Giants are playing a home game this season on the Jewish High Holiday of Rosh Hashanah.  John Mara asked the NFL not to do this.  He is not happy about it.

in response to Mara's statement, the NFL has issued a response via Howard Katz, their senior vice president of broadcasting.
