Giants-Jets Game Moved To Monday

The New York giants vs. New York Jets preseason game scheduled for Saturday at 2 p.m. ET has been re-scheduled for Monday, Aug. 29 at 7 p.m. Safety concerns due to the approach of storms related to Hurrican Irene are, of course, behind the decision.

"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."

This puts the Giants in an awkward situation in terms of finishing their preseason schedule. After Monday the Giants finish their preseason schedule just three days when they travel to Gillette Stadium to face the New England Patriots.
