Weather has Giants adjusting schedule again
Saturday, August 27, 2011
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Being forced to adjust their schedule because of the weather isn't anything new for the New York Giants.
They got used to it last season when a blizzard first delayed their trip to Minnesota and then forced the game to be moved to Detroit when MetroDome roof collapsed.
The Giants are adjusting again with the East Coast being hit Hurricane Irene. The category 1 storm forced the Giants, Jets and the NFL to move Saturday's game at MetLife Stadium from Saturday to Monday night.
The Giants announced the postponement on Friday night, with the team learning about it while in meetings on Friday night. The team practiced on Saturday.
