The Saturday snow storm on the East Coast continues to wreak havoc with Sunday’s schedule.
The latest disruption comes in Philadelphia, where the Eagles and 49ers game has been pushed back to 4:15 ET from 1 ET according to the Twitter account of NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy.
The extra time will allow city and stadium workers more time to clear snow. The storm is expected to wrap up by Sunday morning. Then again, it was supposed to have started by now here in New York. (Our Philly correspondent says the blizzard has started there.)
The new start time in Philadelphia leaves one less intriguing game at 1ET. Miami-Tennessee is the only matchup of the early six games to feature two teams with legitimate playoff hopes. Sorry Falcons fans, we’ve given up on your team.
With Ravens-Bears already having been moved to 4:15 ET, there are six late afternoon games.
