Eagles Vs. Vikings: Postponed Game Set For Tuesday Night On NBC

Here's the quick rundown of what's happened and what will happen with the Eagles' game against the Vikings originally scheduled for tonight.

Early this morning, the NFL began discussing the possibility of moving the game in response to inclement Philadelphia weather, including heavy snow; that quickly turned into the NFL officially postponing the game until Tuesday night.

The Eagles-Vikings game will now take place on Tuesday night at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, and it will be aired by NBC at 8 p.m. Eastern.

Does that unfairly affect the Eagles? Probably. Having the Eagles postponed hurts the Eagles, who will be fighting for playoff positioning with two games in six days, and may help the Vikings, who could have a healthy Brett Favre on hand to make his 299th NFL start.

And while the postponement may enable fans who would have struggled to get to or from today's game because of the snow to see Michael Vick and the Eagles clinch the NFC East, it certainly seems a bit out of character for the NFL, so outwardly concerned about player safety this season, to be totally fine with forcing players to play two regular season games in just six days, especially at the end of the season.
