NFL Network’s Albert Breer reported Sunday morning the Patriots likely won’t beat Sandy in their return to New England, and are making several travel contingency plans.
Under British law, Heathrow Airport closes by 11 p.m. London time. With the Patriots and Rams kicking off at 5 p.m. London time, that doesn’t give the Pats a very good chance to leave Sunday night ahead of the storm.
If that is the case, the Patriots could be in London until Wednesday, depending on the severity of the storm back home.
It’s a good thing the Patriots enter their bye week following the game.
