PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP) — The Steelers are heading to New Jersey this weekend to take on the New York Giants, only the trip will be later than expected because of Superstorm Sandy.

The hotel where the team was going to stay in Jersey City was still without power as of Thursday night. There are also not enough hotel rooms available in the area that can accommodate all the players and staff.

So, the Steelers now have plans to fly up Sunday morning, in plenty of time for the late afternoon game, and then as usual fly back to Pittsburgh after the game.

NFL teams are required to travel the day before a game.

However, the league allowed the Steelers to alter their plans due to the power outage.

The Steelers will fly at 9 a.m. on Sunday and arrive in New York about 90 minutes later

Kickoff for Sunday’s game against the Giants is at 4:25 p.m.
