Bears Didn't Make it to Baltimore Before Storm
BALTIMORE (AP) -- The Chicago Bears tried, but they didn't make it to Baltimore before a snowstorm socked the city.

Sunday's kickoff was pushed Friday from 1 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. (Eastern Time) to give workers time to clear snow from the stadium and the parking lots.

Meanwhile, the Bears decided to fly in Friday night instead of Saturday afternoon. But according to the team, their flight was delayed two hours, then canceled because the storm had begun. The Bears say they'll now try to fly late Saturday to Baltimore.

Ravens Vice President Kevin Byrne tells WBAL-AM in Baltimore that the NFL is working to get the Bears to their destination.
