The Vikings are once again having a game shifted from its anticipated location and/or time as the NFL announced this morning that tonight's game with the Eagles has been moved to 8 p.m. Eastern Standard Time Tuesday as the result of a blizzard bearing down on Philadelphia.
Reports have claimed that up to 20 inches of snow could bury the city and the postponement was issued because of public safety concerns. A state of emergency has been issued by the city effective at 2 p.m. today, six hours before the scheduled start time of tonight's game. A winter storm warning is in effect and will remain so until 1 p.m. Monday.
It will mark the third straight game for the Vikings that has been impacted by the weather. The game with the Giants two weeks ago was moved to Ford Field in Detroit after the Metrodome roof collapsed under the weight of 17 inches of snow, and last Monday's game with the Bears was moved to TCF Bank Stadium on the campus of the University of Minnesota.
Tuesday's game will be played at Lincoln Financial Field, but two days later than expected, and will still be broadcast on NBC.
