The New York Giants and New York Jets have moved up the scheduled start time of Saturday's preseason game to 2 p.m. ET due to the approach of Hurricane Irene.

"We moved the start time based on the weather forecast and to give everybody an opportunity to get home safely after the game," Giants owner John Mara said in a statement released by the team. "There are, obviously, many issues to consider. Our players played a game on Monday night, the stadium personnel has to secure the building post-game and, most importantly, the safety and welfare of Giants and Jets fans. We felt like this is the right thing to do."

Yeah, we're battening down the hatches here on the East Coast. Personally, I don't think it's fair to have an earthquake and a hurricane in the same week. I think they need to pick one or the other. But nobody asked me.
