The winter storm that roared through Minnesota on Saturday deflated the Metrodome in Minneapolis and will force the Vikings to play a home football game in Detroit.
According to the Star Tribune, the roof of the Metrodome tore in three places due to the weight of the fifth-largest snowfall in Twin Cities history.
The news of the location change disappointed fans who were hoping to see the Vikings keep their slim playoff hopes alive against the New York Giants.
According to KSTP, an effort was made by the NFL to play the game at TCF Bank Stadium on the campus of the University of Minnesota, but enormous amounts of snowfall on the field made that option logistically impossible.
"Unfortunately, TCF Bank Stadium was shut down for winter and would take several days to prepare for an NFL game," Vikings officials released in a written statement.
The team will now kickoff from Detroit at 6:20 PM on Monday.
