Games relocated to other stadiumsEdit

The following is a list of regular season and post-season games that were relocated to other venues:

Date played Visiting Team Home Team Game relocated to Reason for relocation
December 18, 1932
(1932 NFL playoff game)
Portsmouth Spartans Chicago Bears Chicago Stadium Moved indoors because of severe blizzards.
October 5, 1969 Green Bay Packers Minnesota Vikings Memorial Stadium (University of Minnesota) A playoff game for the Minnesota Twins caused the Vikings to move their game to the campus of the University of Minnesota.
September 27, 1970 Philadelphia Eagles Chicago Bears Dyche Stadium As part of a trial run. In 1970, the NFL ruled that all teams must play in stadiums that seated more than 50,000 fans, and the Bears were forced to leave Wrigley Field. Ultimately, a deal to play permanently at Dyche Stadium fell through and the team moved to Soldier Field.
September 23, 1973 Miami Dolphins Oakland Raiders California Memorial Stadium The Oakland A's had a game on the following Monday night, it was difficult to switch the Oakland Coliseum between the football and baseball configurations quickly, and the Raiders, sensing a chance for a much larger than normal crowd to see the Super Bowl champion Dolphins, volunteered to move the game to UC Berkeley.
October 22, 1989 New England Patriots San Francisco 49ers Stanford Stadium Candlestick Park suffered damage caused by the Loma Prieta earthquake, and rather than diverting badly needed resources, the game was moved to undamaged Stanford Stadium. Ironically, Stanford was 25 miles closer to the epicenter of the earthquake.
October 27, 2003 Miami Dolphins San Diego Chargers Sun Devil Stadium Qualcomm Stadium was being used as a major evacuation site during the Cedar Fire.
September 19, 2005 New York Giants New Orleans Saints Giants Stadium Hurricane Katrina forced the Saints out of New Orleans. The NFL decided that the Saints' first regularly scheduled home game against the Giants be played in New Jersey, with the Saints the "home" team in name only.
October 2, 2005 San Francisco 49ers Arizona Cardinals Estadio Azteca First regular season game outside the United States. The NFL chose Mexico City as the venue.
December 13, 2010 New York Giants Minnesota Vikings Ford Field The Metrodome suffered damage on December 12 during a blizzard, in which the weight of the snow accumulated on its roof, and it tore open.[22] Because of the short notice, the game between the Giants and the Vikings was moved to Detroit's Ford Field, in part because the Giants did not pack any cold weather gear on their trip, expecting to play indoors.[23] Because it would take longer than a week to repair the Metrodome, the Vikings' next home game against the Bears was instead held locally outdoors at TCF Bank Stadium.[24]
December 20, 2010 Chicago Bears TCF Bank Stadium
