Giants-Jets Postponed Until Monday Night Because Of Hurricane Irene

The New York Giants vs. New York Jets game originally scheduled for tomorrow night at 7 p.m. has now been postponed until Monday night at 7 p.m. because of Hurricane Irene.

The Battle for MetLife Stadium had already been shifted to an earlier time (2 p.m.) on Saturday because of the massive storm.  Forecasters are predicting Irene will have passed over the NY/NJ area by Sunday night.

"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 (NJ) 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 move the game to Monday night."
