Metrodome Roof Collapse Leaves Uncertainty Around Bears-Vikings Week 15 Monday Night Football Game

The Metrodome in Minneapolis has already caused major problems for the NFL in Week 14. The New York Giants, who were supposed to play the Vikings in Minneapolis, were stuck in Kansas City for much of the weekend. The collapsed roof caused the game to be moved back a day -- to Monday night at 7:20 p.m. -- and it's possible the NFL is scrambling next week when the Vikings are set to host the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football.

Officials with the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission remained optimistic the roof could be repaired in time for the Bears game, which is the Vikings' regular-season home finale. But there already was talk of moving the game to TCF Bank Stadium on the University of Minnesota campus.

The University of Minnesota's stadium was one of the options being thrown around on Sunday before the NFL decided to just leave the FOX TV equipment in place at Ford Field.

It's probably a good thing the Vikings aren't in the playoff race because they would have some justified gripes if they had to move their schedule around like this and lose a home game(s) with the playoffs looming.
