With the Metrodome ruled out for Monday, TCF Bank Stadium officially looks to be questionable.
In a carefully-crafted statement, the Vikings have made it clear that the regular-season home finale against the Bears may not be played in the team’s current home state.
“NFL officials are touring TCF Bank Stadium to ensure its safety for our fans and its ability to meet the primary technical requirements for an NFL game,” the statement reads. “Ultimately the decision to relocate a game is the league’s in consultation with the two teams. The NFL supports the plan to play Monday night’s game at TCF Bank Stadium but is currently ensuring viability of this plan.”
In other words, “Don’t assume the game will be played at TCF Bank Stadium. And if it’s not, don’t blame it on us.”
