Giants Team Plane Stuck in KC During Minnesota Snowstorm

The Giants are looking to ground the Vikings Sunday, but right now are grounded themselves. The team has landed in Kansas City, stuck there due to a snowstorm that has put Minnesota into standstill mode.

The teams plane was diverted due to a blizzard, according to team spokesman Pat Hanlon. The Minneapolis-St. Paul airport was closed because of heavy snow and high winds. It’s unclear when the Giants will be able to resume their travel plans. They’re scheduled to play the Vikings at the Metrodome on Sunday at 1 p.m. EST.

Two feet of snow is expected from this storm, which caused the Giants to change their plans once, earlier on Saturday morning. They left New Jersey around 9:30 a.m., about 3½ hours earlier than their usual charter flights. They hoped to get to Minnesota before the worst of the storm.

The storm is expected to end later Saturday. There’s already talk that if the Giants can’t get to Minnesota, the game could be pushed back to a later start, or even played on Monday.

  1. Jason C. says:

    What the league is doing here is completely unfair, and it’s based solely on revenues from the New York media. The game should be delayed until at least 4:30 tomorrow, to expect a team to try to fly out in uncontrollably bad weather in order to make a nearly impossible deadline is not only showing total disregard to player safety (which goes against EVERYTHING they’ve been saying these past couple of months doesn’t it??), but to the preservation of quality in the game as well. The NFL should speak up now and allow safety to take precedence.
