Could the Cowboys-Eagles Game Get Moved Next Week?

ESPN’s Calvin Watkins reports about the thought of moving around the regular season finale between the Cowboys and the Eagles, who will now have to wait till Tuesday to play against the Vikings.

With an expected blizzard that could smash Philadelphia with 20 inches of snow, the NFL has moved the Eagles-Vikings game to Tuesday night. That move could have an impact on next Sunday’s Cowboys-Eagles game which is the regular season finale.

The Eagles would have basically two days of practice to get ready for a Sunday game, but moving the Cowboys game to a Monday should give them enough time to get ready.

League spokesman Greg Aiello told ESPNDallas no discussions have been made regarding moving the game.

The Vikings already have had two home games affected by the weather this season. Their game against the Giants on Dec. 12 was postponed a day after Minneapolis got 15 inches of snow. It was then moved to Detroit when the Metrodome roof collapsed.

As for the weather next week, the forecast calls for showers with a high of 45 degrees for the Philadelphia area. If the game were moved to a Monday the forecast is clear skies with a high of 40 degrees the low 26 degrees.
