Hurricane Joaquin forces NFL to consider relocating Eagles-Redskins game

The NFL is exploring the idea of moving Sunday's Eagles-Redskins game due to the chances that Hurricane Joaquin hits the Washington D.C. area over the weekend. 

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told the Washington Post on Wednesday that officials are examining the situation and have been in contact with both teams about possibly moving the game the to a different location. 

Aiello denied to comment about possible options, but this wouldn't be the first time that an NFL game was forced to be played in a different stadium. Two games in the last five years were moved to Detroit's Ford Field due to inclement weather. 

Big Ten Network already cancelled their on-site coverage of Saturday night's Michigan-Maryland game. Maryland plays their home games approximately seven miles from FedEx Field, the home of the Redskins.  

The game is scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m.
