Metrodome roof collapses, Vikings head to Detroit

Heavy snow poured into the Metrodome early Sunday after three panels in the inflated roof tore.

Around 5 a.m. stress from Saturday's winter storm was too much for the 28-year-old Metrodome, causing the roof to collapse and leaving the Viking's without a home.

According to the Pioneer Press, the NFL announced Sunday morning that the game against the New York Giants will be played in Detroit Monday night.

It is unclear if the roof can be repaired for the Vikings last home game on Dec. 20 against the Chicago Bears, the Star Tribune reported.

This is the fourth time the roof has deflated since the Dome's completion in 1981.
