The Jets-Giants preseason game scheduled for Saturday at 2 p.m. ET has been postponed to Monday, Aug. 29 at 7 p.m. ET due to Hurricane Irene. It will be aired live on NFL Network. The announcement came Friday evening.

Giants owner John Mara said the game time was moved "for the safety and well-being of all."

The game was originally scheduled for 7 p.m. ET on Saturday before the kickoff time was moved up because of the hurricane warnings.

The storm is expected to be of historic proportions, as it is projected to hit cities along the eastern seaboard starting Saturday, including New York, Philadelphia, Washington, Baltimore and Boston.
