Hurricane Irene Affecting NFL

The New York Giants-New York Jets pre-season game, originally scheduled for today (Saturday, Aug. 27), has been postponed until Monday, Aug. 29 at 7 p.m. due to Hurricane Irene. "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."
