Eagles-Vikings moved to Tuesday night

The Eagles-Vikings game has been moved to Tuesday at 8 p.m., the NFL has announced.

We already told you how the weather could affect tonight’s game, with Philadelphia expecting about a foot of snow with winds gusting as much as 45 mph. But the NFL, most likely wanting to protect the tens of thousands of fans who have tickets for tonight’s game, has decided to move it back 48 hours.

Now, with the postponement, there are a few extra interesting storylines.

1) Will Brett Favre play now? He wouldn't have gone today; that would have been Joe Webb's job. But now, he has an extra two days to pass the league-mandated concussion tests. With Favre, that, of course, is well within the realm of possibilities.

2) How will this affect the Eagles-Cowboys Week 17 game? It certainly won't help the Eagles, who will be battling for the No. 2 playoff seed (which comes with that all-important first-round bye). The Cowboys, who played Saturday, now will have three more extra days of rest when they face Philadelphia.

3) For Fantasy Footballers, this will also give RB Adrian Peterson a couple extra days to rest the leg injury that caused him to miss last week's game vs. the Giants. Peterson practiced Thursday and Friday, so he probably would have played anyway. But two extra days does a body good.

4) The only good news for the Vikings beat writers who will now stay in Philadelphia a couple extra days: this postponement will give them plenty of time to compare Pat's, Geno's and Jim's.

5) What will the children do now on Tuesday night? Disney on Ice in Philadelphia has been cancelled for the night.

Fan safety? Gimme a break, we know how to deal with snow. How in the world would you know who is complaining and who isn't? It is one thing to cancel, it is another thing to move to Tuesday night, nothing good can come of this. The NFL does not cancel games because of weather, I have no idea why they decided to call this one, how many snow games have we seen over the years. Just an awful decision

Camel, this in no way helps the Eagles, this is the worst thing that could happen for them right now. The league screwed up big time. Hate Vick all you want, bottom line, he has been great this year

Lol.  He was the most overrated player in the league for all the years he was on the Falcons.  Brady is the MVP, and you're sadly mistaken if you think otherwise.  Look at the talent Vick has around him, McNabb could get that team to 10-11 wins.  I'm a Dolphins fan in case you try to make the argument that I say Brady because I like the Pats

Both teams are there, tell them to get to the field early and play the game...I am sure some die hard fans would find a way to get there...

Glazer just said fan safety...give me a break.....I believe Bears and Pats just played in blizzard conditions.....what is it, Vick may not be able to put a great show....come on....or maybe Minnesota maybe won the game.....

Play the game, football is an outside sport.....so what will happen in 2014 when NY hosts the Super Bowl and they get a blizzard that weekend....Oh sorry fans the Super Bowl has been postponed until further notice, but thanks for coming....
