Steelers Will Fly To New York On Game Day
The Pittsburgh Steelers hotel in Jersey City, N.J., has no power so the Steelers will fly Sunday morning to New York for their 4:35 p.m. game that day with the Giants, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
The Steelers were scheduled to stay at the Westin in Jersey City but that hotel has been without power since Hurricane Sandy struck. The team was unable to find a hotel with enough vacant rooms to handle their party within reasonable distance to MetLife Stadium.
So they will take the hour-long flight Sunday morning.
The team normally leaves on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. on road trips, no matter where they are playing, stay one night and fly home after the game.

JUST DRIVE!!! It's like a 7 hour drive. With time waiting in the airport/luggage/hookers/etc it'll take 7 hours to fly.
