And now we know that the NFL will be postponing today's Eagles-Vikings game.
Philadelphia-based NFL writer Adam Caplan of FOX Sports tweets that the Eagles have said the game is postponed until Tuesday night.
In this case, at this point, the postponement has little to do with whether or not the game will be playable and much to do with the safety of fans.
The game will be played Tuesday at 8 p.m. Eastern, according to NFL Network. And while that's not a great thing for Eagles fans that might have planned to been on hand to cheer on Michael Vick tonight and will now have to figure out how to make a weeknight game work, it might produce a better game for them.
After all, Brett Favre, seemingly ailing with more injuries than there are varieties of snowflakes, now has 48 hours to get healthy. And regardless of your opinions on Favre, him playing is still a more exciting prospect than rookie Joe Webb starting.
