Offensive coordinator Joe Philbin will rejoin the Green Bay Packers for Sunday’s divisional playoff game against the New York Giants after spending the week away from the team to mourn the death of his son.
The New York Giants took advantage of Brett Favre standing on the sideline as Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw had long runs in a 21-3 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night.
During Saturday’s blizzard, Vikings fans eyed the skies with uncertainty until the call was made that the New York Giants wouldn’t be flying into Minneapolis in time for Sunday’s game. Then, in a metaphor for deflating spirits, snow collapsed the roof of the Metrodome.
It took a little more than two hours to give away free tickets to tonight’s Vikings-Giants game in Detroit.
The Minnesota Vikings’ long push for a new stadium has been stuck in neutral for more than a decade, but scary images of the Metrodome’s wrecked roof might accelerate the process.
The rescheduled and relocated Giants-Vikings game will be broadcast in the teams’ home markets and on the NFL’s satellite TV package.
FOX Sports cameras were inside the Metrodome this morning when the roof collapsed like a gigantic souffle gone bad. Watch (and hear) the carnage here.
The Minnesota Vikings say Brett Favre is still a game-time decision for their postponed matchup with the New York Giants in Detroit on Monday night.
The weight of all the snow that fell Saturday has caused the roof of the Metrodome in downtown Minneapolis to collapse.
A snowstorm has pushed the New York Giants-Minnesota Vikings game to Monday night.
Brett Favre still hasn’t been able to throw a proper pass in practice, and the Minnesota Vikings still haven’t given up hope their quarterback will extend his NFL record for consecutive starts against the New York Giants on Sunday.
