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