MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.- The Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants will play on Monday night in Detroit after the Metrodome's inflated roof collapsed in a snowstorm.

The NFL says kickoff will be at 7:20 p.m. Eastern time.

Metrodome officials told the league the roof wouldn't be ready in time to play Monday or Tuesday. The league had discussions with Detroit and Indianapolis and ultimately decided to hold the game at Ford Field.

The delay has given Vikings quarterback Brett Favre more time to heal his sprained right shoulder and see if he can extend his NFL-record streak of 297 straight games started.
