A number of serious wildfires in the Canadian province of Quebec are giving off tons of smoke that is affecting millions of people in the United States.
The smoke from those fires is making its way into the Northeast, and it is particularly bad along the Atlantic coast.
As a result, the NFL‘s New York Jets and New York Giants will both have to practice indoors in order to keep everyone safe from the ill effects of the smoke from the wildfires.
The Giants and Jets will both practice indoors tomorrow due to the smoky conditions from wildfires in Canada, per sources.
There is an air quality alert in effect across the Tri-State area.

The New York City area has been hit particularly hard by the effects of these Canadian wildfires, and forecasters say the unhealthy conditions will continue for a while.
It’s particularly a downer for the Jets, who have a new energy they’ve never really enjoyed before thanks to the arrival of future Hall-of-Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
By all accounts, he has seemed energized by his new surroundings, and the Jets have legitimate Super Bowl aspirations for the first time in forever.
Rodgers has also been enjoying the city in which people can seemingly do anything at any time of day or night, as he recently took in a Taylor Swift concert.
Meanwhile, the Giants are looking to build on a surprising 2022 campaign in which they went 9-7-1 and upset the 13-4 Minnesota Vikings in the Wild Card round of the playoffs.
Their roster looks similar to the one they had last year, but they’re hoping to challenge the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys for NFC East supremacy.NEXT: 49ers Defender Shares Bold Brandon Aiyuk Prediction
