EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J • Sunday’s NFL game at the Meadowlands between the Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Giants will go on as planned despite concerns about the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.
Commissioner Roger Goodell spoke with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to discuss transportation issues that could arise. Christie, according to NFL spokesman Greg Aiello, says the league would not be “diverting any resources away from relief efforts.” There have been long gas lines throughout New Jersey and New York.
Aiello says Christie was pleased the game would be played.
The Steelers changed travel plans because the hotel they booked in New Jersey did not have power. The team will fly in Sunday morning and leave after the game.
