PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers are turning their visit to New York this weekend to face the Giants into a day trip.

The Steelers will leave for New York on Sunday morning and depart Sunday evening. NFL teams are required to travel the day before a game. The league allowed the Steelers to alter their plans because the hotel the team is booked to stay at in Jersey City was still without power as of Thursday afternoon.

Pittsburgh will fly at 9 a.m. on Sunday and arrive in New York about 90 minutes later, well ahead of the scheduled 4:25 p.m. kickoff. The team will charter home later Sunday night.

The typical travel plans haven't worked out well for the Steelers this season. They're 1-3 on the road.
