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.
