MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL AIRPORT -- I’m trying to keep up with gate changes and flight statuses here at the airport in hopes of making it to Pittsburgh at some point Saturday. While I’m doing that, make sure you follow the Bears’ efforts to make it to Baltimore in time for Sunday’s 4:15 p.m. kickoff.
Brad Briggs of the Chicago Tribune is following everything here. The short version is that the Bears tried to depart Friday night to beat the blizzard currently pelting the East Coast. Their flight was canceled and they now hope to arrive sometime before midnight Saturday. Typically, NFL teams arrive on Saturday afternoon for road games.
I’ll check back in with you later Saturday.
