Metrodome roof buckles under snow, sends Vikes to Detroit

The Metrodome roof collapsed early Sunday morning, sending the Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants to play their game in Detroit Monday night, according to the Star Tribune.

The stadium's roof buckled under the pressure of the accumulating snow, after the Twin Cities were hit with a winter storm. The roof tore in three places and collapsed at around 5 a.m., according to the Star Tribune.

The NFL announced Sunday morning that the Dome would not be ready for a game Monday or Tuesday, thus moving the previously scheduled Vikings-Giants game to Detroit to be played Monday night, according to the Pioneer Press.
