Minnesota Vikings at Philadelphia Eagles for Sunday Night Football

A major winter storm is impacting the northeast U.S., which may drop over a foot of snow and blizzard conditions in some places. The Minnesota Vikings are scheduled to play the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football. The NFL is considering postponing the game due to the conditions.  Considering what the Minnesota Vikings have been through during the 2010 season, this would only be a fitting exclamation point.  Hey, if they can get a game up and going at TCF Bank Stadium, why can’t they get the field ready at Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Eagles?  A heat pipe system is used at that stadium to keep the grass from going dormant, but are not used to melt snow.  It’s football and snow, what else could you ask for?  Play the game!

Winter storm warnings for the areas shaded in pink, and blizzard warnings for areas in orange, which includes NYC and all of Long Island.


10-14 inches of snow possible for Philadelphia according to the latest NAM and GFS Cobb output through Monday night:


Just the latest chapter that is the 2010 Vikings season!
