The weather at Met Life stadium on Monday afternoon wasn’t pretty, and ESPN had to make some adjustments.
Hours before Monday night’s game between the Bills and the Jets, a severe weather warning was put in place, and people inside the stadium were told to “shelter in place.”

Due to the shelter-in-place warning, ESPN’s Monday Night Football crew were forced to do their pre-game show inside the stadium instead of on the field.

Of course, despite warnings from stadium officials, New Yorkers still tailgated through the severe weather warning.
