EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - The New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers are still on for their game Sunday at MetLife Stadium as recovery efforts continue in devastated New Jersey following Superstorm Sandy.
The NFL confirmed on Saturday that the matchup is still scheduled for its 4:25 p.m. kickoff Sunday afternoon. Gov. Chris Christie did not address the game during a briefing Saturday, and a spokesman deferred questions about it to the league.
Christie and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell spoke on Friday.
The New York City Marathon, also scheduled for Sunday, has been canceled - although the New York Knicks opened their season on Friday night at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan and the Brooklyn Nets were playing Saturday night.
Given the gas shortage in the state, and the lack of mass transit available, the Giants have urged fans to carpool.
