Snowstorm pushes Giants/Vikings to Monday night

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A snowstorm has pushed the New York

Giants-Minnesota Vikings game to Monday night.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed the decision in an e-mail

message Saturday night, with the Giants stuck in Kansas City

because of the weather in Minnesota that brought 15 or more inches

of snow.

Aiello said the decision was made on the recommendation of

Metrodome officials. Kickoff time and television arrangements were

still being determined.

The delay gives Vikings quarterback Brett Favre another day to

heal. Favre is aiming to make his NFL-record 298th straight start,

with a sprained shoulder that has made throwing difficult. He's

listed as questionable to play the Giants.
