It snowed in Minnesota. A lot. After a portion of the Metrodome's roof caved in, the NFL was forced to move the Giants-Vikings game to Detroit. The talking heads on the pregame shows all had an opinion about which team benefits from all this. Does it actually give either team an advantage?

The video of that collapse was spooky. Thank goodness no one was hurt.

Both teams suffer as a result of this - and you know who benefits? The Eagles. They now get the Giants on a short week after their planes, trains, and buses expedition to Kansas City and Detroit. That will help the Birds, or hurt the Giants, depending on how you look at it.

The Vikings lose whatever home-field edge they might have had. Did you see the video of that collapse? Amazing. Looked like an avalanche.

True enough about home field, but the Giants got stuck at the airport for a while. The TV cameras showed Eli Manning looking less than thrilled. The man has perfected the pouty face. Remember when your mom told you not to make certain faces because it would freeze that way? Turns out it's possible.

Is that what happened to Dan Dierdorf?
