Jets-Giants Preseason Game Changed To 2 P.M. Due To Hurricane Irene

Saturday’s preseason game between the New York Giants and New York Jets at MetLife Stadium has been moved to a 2 p.m. ET start due to Hurricane Irene. Storms caused by Irene are expected to hit New Jersey Saturday night, and the original start time for the game had been 7 p.m.

“We moved the start time based on the weather forecast and to give everybody an opportunity to get home safely after the game,” said Giants President and CEO John Mara. “There are, obviously, many issues to consider. Our players played a game on Monday night, the stadium personnel has to secure the building post-game and, most importantly, the safety and welfare of Giants and Jets fans. We felt like this is the right thing to do.”

The Giants are the home team for the game. If you want more details on the storm and its projected path, check
