    Which means there is already a TV crew there, and with a Monday game, worst case, they fly the original announcers into the game. Detroit is starting to look like a shoe-in for this game. Bet the stands sit mostly empty.

    I'll bet they "sell" tickets for $10 or something very cheap. Looks like Detroit is it.

    They did the same thing after the Chargers were forced out of town due to fires and they needed to hold the game in PHX.

    According to published reports, the U of Minn stadium is out because the Giants didn't bring any cold weather gear with them. That's why the other domes, Det or St Louis are being considered.

    And part of the point. Fox has the rights and already has its camaras and such set up there. Other posibility is New Orleans, for same reason. One would have thought that Kansas City would be logical, since the Giants are still stuck there, but that is an AFC town and Fox cannot get its TV crews in there on short notice.

    If they don't find a quick solution in the bubbledome....then I suspect others are right that Detroit will be the alternate solution - TV crews, refs, and such in place today already.

    NFL Net says its mostly likely Detroit. The refs assigned to the NY-Minn game would also go. The league wouldn't have refs work two days in a row. And NFL Net confirmed ST subs will get the game

    This isn't all that important but I was just curious. Do the Minneapolis and New York markets get a 1pm Fox game today or just the one tomorrow night?
