Broadcasting the game will be challenge considering how the storm could impact the area.

Let's say they decide on Monday Night in Housotn and then they can't pull it off? Maybe issues with electricity, the broadcasting crew isn't there, fans won't be there?

I don't like the idea of losing a home game, but the reality of the situation and the options available seem to indicate the game is played somewhere outside of Texas if they definitely want to play this game this weekend.

If they don't play it this weekend, how do they reschedule?

Here is an off the wall suggestion from PFT.com

Quote:
A reader has offered up an intriguing alternative that could have some merit. Week Two could be declared the Ravens’ and Texans’ bye week, and they could play on November 9 in Houston, when the Ravens are scheduled to have their bye.

The problem is that the Texans currently are slated to host the Bengals that day. But since the Bengals and Texans have a bye set for October 26, the Bengals-Texans game could be moved to the currently-scheduled open date. In turn, the Bengals’ bye would become November 9.

As long as they don't mess with the Lions game at Reliant 10/19, sounds great to me.

Going to be kind of hard to see in the dark, but it could improve Schaub's accuracy.

That is an intriguing solution to the problem, however some peoples plans are bound to be screwed-up. Like me & family.
I'm planning on going to that game and NP for me since I live here. But my family members live in California & Missouri and they've already bought plane tickets for the weekend of the the Bengals game on 11-9, i. e. plane fare for the weekend of 11-9 with tickets for a game which is rescheduled to a weekend in Oct. Not good a combination !

No, but let's face it - the city (i.e. gov't and big business) get priority fixing. So those close to the city probably will have power back (if lost) before the burbs.

I rather have the Ravens game in Baltimore, and have us switch home games with the Titans. It'll be less complicated then the idea suggested in your quote.

Edit: now that I think about it, it'll mess up the 8 home games 8 road games for the Ravens... I don't know now. Maybe neutral site?

Bingo.

Come on, people, we've all seen this song and dance before. The storm will move through, residents will break out the chainsaws to cut up the downed tree limbs, the waters will drain, and everything will be back to normal within a day.

This is not worse than Alicia. The center of the city will be fine.

A week 2 bye week would basically negate the advantage of any rest period which it should offer a team during a long season............With how things are going already and our team's track record, by the end of the season we'll be playing "Ten Little Indians."

PFT's solution works, but your post is exactly why I'm not in favor of it!

The problem with your scenario, is that there is a chance the game isn't played. And if it is played, probably at very little capacity. What about the broadcast setup?

And what about the season ticket holders that can't make the game and still charged for the game anyway?

Are the Ravens even in Houston yet?

I suspect they are going to pick the situation that gives the highest degree of the game being played this weekend.

The Ravens are due to arrive tomorrow, before the storm.

My scenario is the likely scenario. Monday night is a long time away from Friday night/Saturday morning. As of now, the game is still scheduled for 3:15 Sunday.
