Giants to play Monday in Detroit

The Giants will have to wait until Monday night to take on the Vikings in Minnesota, plus a new DeSean Jackson video.

Giants to play Monday in Detroit

The Giants will host the Eagles coming off a short week next Sunday.

The league announced that the Giants will travel to Detroit to take on the Vikings on Monday night at 7:20 p.m. EST.

The game will be televised only in the New York and Minnesota markets.

A blizzard in the midwest prevented the Giants from landing in Minneapolis Saturday. Instead, the team was re-routed to Kansas City, where it spent the night.

Earlier Sunday, multiple media outlets reported that the roof of the Metrodome had collapsed.

Fox has crazy video of the Metrodome roof collapsing. I've embedded it below.

What does this mean for the Birds? The Giants will have ones less day to prepare for them in Week 15. I just took a quick look, and New York is 3-4 when coming off a short week under Tom Coughlin.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Giants coaches have alredy started preparations for the Eagles as they wait.

The Giants' vice president of communications, Pat Hanlon, has been documenting the team's travels via Twitter.

The Giants and Eagles are tied atop the NFC East at 8-4. The Vikings are 5-7. They've won two in a row.

It turns out DirecTV subscribers will be able to watch the game.


Below is a pretty cool DeSean Jackson video passed along by Alfred from CommitteeNYC.

Earlier Saturday, I posted the weekly roundup of picks for Eagles-Cowboys.
