Team spokesman Pat Hanlon said Tuesday that the team arrived at Newark Liberty Airport at about 11 a.m.

The team remained in Appleton, Wis., after the 45-17 loss because their charter plane was not going to be allowed to land at Newark Liberty Airport. Much of New Jersey was buried under 2 feet of snow from Sunday's storm.

The team has one remaining regular-season game. If they lose in Washington on Sunday, their postseason hopes are over.
