A midwestern snowstorm stranded the NFL's New York Giants in Kansas City on Saturday. Good thing the Giants didn't make it to Minneapolis.
On Sunday, the roof of the Metrodome, Minnesota Vikings' stadium, collapsed, spilling an avalanche of snow onto the field in an apocalyptic-like video (watch the video after the jump).
As ESPN reported,
the Giants were left in limbo at a KC hotel until the league figured
out when to schedule the game (the game was moved to Detroit and
rescheduled for 6:20 p.m. Monday, so fantasy football players won't
bitch about getting screwed during the stretch run).
Kansas City is no stranger to roof collapses. Remember Kemper Arena in June 1979? KC is also experienced with its football team collapsing. The Chiefs lost 31-0 to division rival San Diego. Arrowhead Pride has some ugly, ugly stats, including 67 -- the number of yards the Chiefs managed ... for the entire game.
The Chiefs need to burn Sunday's loss and move on. They still lead the AFC West by one game. Red Zone says the Chiefs' destiny is in their hands. If they win their last three games, they're good to go. That won't be easy with three somewhat tough games (@ St. Louis, vs. Tennessee, vs. Oakland). If they drop one of those games, and the Chargers win out, the Chargers have the tie breaker and the division.
