As the NFC East champion Eagles wait for their Tuesday night Week 16 tilt against the Minnesota Vikings, the NFL has announced that next week's regular season finale against the Dallas Cowboys at Lincoln Financial Field has been moved from 1 PM to 4:15 P.M. The move will give the Eagles a few more hours of rest as they work on a quick five-day turnaround from this Tuesday night's game.
If the Eagles beat the Vikings this week, they'll have a chance to play for a first-round bye. In order to grab the coveted No. 2 seed in the NFC, the Eagles must win out and have the Bears lose their Week 17 game in Green Bay to the Packers. That Bears-Packers game has also been flexed from 1 P.M. to 4:15 P.M.
