The Packers become the first NFL team to fly to a road game, but the flight from Chicago to New York is forced to land in Cleveland for refueling and is then grounded due to fog in New York.

The Packers, who would eventually lose the game to the Giants, 7-3, finish the trip via train and fly back from New York to Chicago after the game with no incidents.
