The Star Tribune’s Judd Zulgad is reporting on Twitter that the Metrodome won’t be cleared of snow and repaired in time for next week’s Monday Night Football game between the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears. The stadium had previously been listed as Doubtful on the injury report, and now it appears its next games-hosted streak will have to wait until next year to begin. The Vikings play nothing but road games after this weekend, and will not play any playoff games, so that’s it for this season at the Metrodome.
Fox 9 News reports the game will be played at the University of Minnesota’s TCF Bank Stadium, which the team is having cleaned at the moment. The Vikings have “turned their full attention” to the college stadium, with five-foot drifts of snow that need cleared in a hurry.
