The Eagles-Vikings game scheduled for the day after Christmas at Lincoln Financial Field has been moved from a 1 p.m. start to 8:20 p.m. The game will be broadcast on NBC.
It will be the sixth time this season that the Eagles will be playing in prime-time. They are 5-0 this season in night time games. But first, the Eagles travel to face the New York Giants on Sunday at 1 p.m.
The final regular season game in which the Eagles host the Cowboys on Jan. 2 is slated to begin at 1 p.m., but could also be moved to a later start.
So why are the Eagles such a hot prime-time commodity? Two words: Michael Vick.
Vick, by the way, was seen down at the NovaCare Complex on Monday. While most of the Eagles were taking the day off to rest, the quarterback was getting an extra workout in, he said.
"I don't need a day off," Vick said.
