UPDATE: The game between the Vikings and the Eagles will be televised nationwide by NBC. No issues with DirecTV or anything of that nature.

UPDATE: The game between the Vikings and the Eagles has, indeed, been postponed until Tuesday. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 PM Central time at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

What, you didn't think the Vikings were just going to have a normal weekend of playing football or anything, did you? Yeah, right. . .like that's going to happen to this team this season.

No, with the blizzard that has been moving up the East Coast this weekend and is scheduled to bring 40 mile per hour winds and a foot of snow to the Philadelphia area today, the game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Philadelphia Eagles that is scheduled to take place at approximately 7:30 PM Central time this evening is in danger of being postponed, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, among others.

This game was inexplicably flexed into a prime time slot a couple of weeks ago. . .presumably so that people could watch Michael Vick run around and whoop up on an undermanned and overmatched Minnesota defense as part of his MVP campaign. . .and now it looks like it might get pushed back to Monday night. I would assume that it would take place on Monday night, anyway. I can't confirm or deny that one way or the other.
