The Patriots will do their best to beat Hurricane Sandy back to the Northeast. 
After pummeling the Rams 45-7 at London's historic Wembley Stadium, New England decided it had enough destruction for the near future; multiple reports out of the locker room say the team changed its flight home from noon to 5 a.m. London time (1 a.m. EDT)
Why not leave Sunday night? The game ended before 10 p.m., GMT, but flights don't leave London's Heathrow Airport past 11 p.m. local time. 
Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick declared a state emergency Saturday afternoon in anticipation of wind-induced power outages and potential flooding. Sunday, the Governor  interrupted local post game television coverage to give another update and request public and private schools close Monday, October 29 and that all "non-essential employees" stay home. 
It seems the Patriots are attempting to do just that.
