Giants, Jets Postpone Preseason Game To Monday Due To Hurricane

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The Giants and Jets have postponed their preseason game from Saturday to Monday due to the threat of Hurricane Irene.

Giants president and CEO John Mara said Friday that moving the game two days later was the best course of action for the safety of all.

Hurricane Irene was on track to reach the New York area by Sunday.

New York City planned to shut down the entire mass transit system by noon on Saturday.

The game had originally been scheduled for 7 p.m. on Saturday, but had been moved up five hours on Thursday because of the Hurricane.

    I am a Philadelphia Eagles Fan and there is no way on God’s Earth I want to see both Giants and Jets putting their Lives in Harm’s Way.

    I like to give credit to both New York NFL Teams for postponing Saturday Game and reschedule for Monday Evening.

    I pray that Met Life Stadium Survives Irene.
