The Phillies haven't made it back to the World Series yet, but their quest to repeat has impacted the Eagles' schedule.

With the possibility of an 8:15 p.m. World Series game being played at Citizens Bank Park Nov. 1, the NFL has rescheduled the Eagles' Nov. 1 game against the New York Giants for 1 p.m. The game had been scheduled for 4:15 p.m. and is likely to be the Fox network's premier matchup that day.

A team spokesman said the logistics of the situation forced the decision to be made even though the Phillies must beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League Championship Series to reach the World Series.

It would be a dream scenario for Philadelphia fans if the Eagles were to beat the Giants in the afternonn, then have the Phillies knock off the New York Yankees at night.

But right now, all we know for sure is that the Eagles are going to play the Giants at 1 p.m. Nov. 1.
