Eagles game may be postponed

Due to the oncoming blizzard, the NFL is discussing whether to postpone the Eagles/Vikings game scheduled for tonight at 8:20. While DeSean Jackson on Twitter is pleading to still play the game (It's only snow!!!! Let us play... It must b alot of fun... I'm ready let's get it on!!), the NFL is likely concerned about the fans and whether they will safely be able to get to and from a game when there is 8 to 12 inches of snow on the ground.

Given the amount of money NBC stands to make on a nationally televised snow bowl, I highly doubt they move the game to another day. With Monday night football and bowl games coming in the next few days, there isn't a logical day or time that it could be moved to, so the game will need to be played tonight.
