The Jets-Giants Game Has Been Moved to Monday Night

New, comments

Due to the impending doom hurricane, and with public transportation scheduled to be shut down at noon on Saturday, the game between the Jets and Giants has been postponed to Monday Night. From Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger:

"Along with the NFL office and the Jets, we have closely monitored the hurricane and the forecast and its potential impact on our area for the past several days," said Giants President and CEO John Mara. "After conferring with (New Jersey) Governor (Chris) Christie, (Jets owner) Woody Johnson and (NFL) Commissioner (Roger) Goodell, we have determined the best course of action for the safety and well being of all is to move the game to Monday night."

We will have to wait a little more to find out who gets the inaugural Snoopy Trophy in the MetLife Bowl. That will give the Jets only a few days before their next preseason game against the Eagles. But the important thing is obviously the safety of the players, coaches, officials, workers and fans.

The game, scheduled for 7pm, will still air locally on WNBC 4 and nationally on NFL Network.
