(NBC) - The day that pro football fans have been waiting for is here.
The 2012 NFL season kicks off tonight on NBC as the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants host their arch-rivals, the Dallas Cowboys.
The NFL opener moved to Wednesday because President Obama is giving his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night.
Both teams went through final practices this week.
Dallas has dropped five of the last six meetings between the divisional rivals, including a pair of crushing defeats late last season.
