A Thunderstorm rolled through causing violent winds, heavy rains, and lightning that sent everyone except Jason Kelce back to the locker room.

The storm has passed but the water buildup on the stadium turf has caused pitching mounds to pop up all over the field, forcing Jets GM and other top decision-makers out onto the field to discuss the issues.

With both teams expected to sit their starters, several rookies, reserves, and bubble players for both teams would lose out on the chance to impress in front of a national television audience.
