The NFL’s 2024 international slate will have a New York flair.

The Giants and Jets will both play overseas during the 2024 season, the NFL announced Wednesday ahead of the full schedule release.

The Giants are headed to Munich, Germany on Nov. 10 for a battle with the Carolina Panthers at Allianz Arena, the home of FC Bayern Munich.

For the Jets, this is their third trip to London and first since 2021 when they played the Falcons there. 

This game will be a possible reunion for the Jets and former quarterback Sam Darnold, who signed with the Vikings this offseason.

The Jets drafted Darnold at No. 3 overall in 2018 and then traded him to the Panthers in 2021.

Darnold will be competing with J.J. McCarthy, who the Vikings chose this year in the first round at No. 10 overall, a pick they acquired in a trade with the Jets.

Minnesota finished 7-10 this past season.

This is the second Jets’ game that has officially been revealed, with the team’s “Monday Night Football” road opener against the 49ers being announced Tuesday.

For the Giants, this game marks the first regular-season game they will play in Germany and their fourth game in Europe.

They previously played in Berlin at Berlin Olympic Stadium on Aug. 13, 1994, when they beat the Chargers, 28-20, in a preseason game.

The Giants are 3-0 in international games, having last bested the Packers in London in 2022.

The Giants previously had been received international marketing rights in Germany through the NFL’s Global Markets Program, paving the way for this game, according to the team’s press release.

This game will mark new Giants pass rusher Brian Burns’ first game against his former team after this offseason’s blockbuster trade.

The Panthers finished an NFL-worst 2-15 last season.
