Metrodome May Not Be Ready For Bears Vs. Vikings; TCF Bank Stadium Preparing To Host

The Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings Monday Night Football game next week doesn't yet have a home but it's looking it will be TCF Bank Stadium, home of the University of Minnesota, is definitely in play. The Vikings released a statement on Tuesday indicating that the Metrodome may not be ready for the game after the roof collapsed Sunday morning.

The Minnesota Vikings are working diligently with the University of Minnesota and the NFL on preparing TCF Bank Stadium in the event that Mall of America Field at the Metrodome will not be ready for Monday night’s Vikings-Bears game. Their cooperation has been tremendous.

The statement does not confirm that TCF Bank Stadium will be the site but suggests it's a possibility.. The Vikings said they are "committed to ensuring a home game in Minnesota for our fans," which means TCF Bank Stadium is the best option. The University of Minnesota announced on Sunday that it would take some time to prepare the stadium for a Vikings game since they had shut it down for the winter.
