NFL Fumbles Ravens/Texans Game

As early as Wednesday, the NFL had to know that a game in Houston this weekend was questionable.  The first rumors out of the league was that the game would be played, but at a neutral location out of the path of the storm.  The league immediately denied this and then waited until late Thursday to announce the game would be played in Houston on Monday night.  Now, word is out that the stadium is damaged and, of course, the city has a lot of damage and power outages.  Still, no word from the NFL on what they plan to do in regards to the game. Reports are out now that the game will be postponed.  I will believe it when I see it.  I fully expect the NFL to announce the game will be played at a neutral location on Monday night.  I can see why the NFL would want to play the game.  A postponement would be a scheduling nightmare as the league is not set up to handle this scenario.  The league could have made the right decision on Wednesday to move or postpone the game instead of leaving the players in limbo.  Now, instead of the Houston players being able to deal with any damage at their homes, they are likely sitting at a team facility waiting for word on where they need to be on Monday.  The last thing they, or the city of Houston needs to be worrying about right now is the status of a football game.
