Giants president and CEO John Mara said Friday that moving the game two days later was the best course of action for the safety of all.

Hurricane Irene was on track to reach the New York area by Sunday.

New York City planned to shut down the entire mass transit system by noon on Saturday.

The game had originally been scheduled for 7 p.m. on Saturday, but had been moved up five hours on Thursday because of the Hurricane.

It will now be played at 7 p.m. on Monday night.
