The NFL hasn’t made a decision on whether to move the Week 4 game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers yet. They have, however, decided on a venue should they need to move the game.
As relayed by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, NFL executive Jeff Miller says that if Hurricane Ian forces the league to make a change, the game will be played in Minnesota at US Bank Stadium. This was first reported as an option by ESPN’s Jeff Darlington on Monday night. The reason that this option would work is that the Minnesota Vikings are in London to face the New Orleans Saints this week and their stadium would be open.
According to NFL exec Jeff Miller, there is no change to the #Bucs–#Chiefs game on Sunday as of now. They are discussing all matters with local authorities. Should Hurricane Ian force a change, the game would be played in Minnesota at US Bank Stadium.

The NFL seems intent on waiting until the last possible minute to make a decision here. They’re communicating with local authorities on the matter and will do everything in their power to keep the game at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay.
The league could wait as long as Friday afternoon before making a decision, which is a tough hand of cards for the fans who would like to travel and attend the game should it be moved.
