So is there going to be a game today moved to the prime time slot, or is it just going to be left empty?

Why would you think they'd move another game?

We now have a kinder, gentle NFL. I miss the old days when weather was rarely a factor. Anyone remember "The Ice Bowl" or "The Fog Bowl"? :rolleyes:

It's about the safety of the fans, not babying the players.

"We are really worried about after the game -- if all those people are buried in the snow in their cars in the parking lots around South Philly, that could be a big problem for hours and hours," said one city official who asked not to be identified.

In short, NBC will probably air some reruns or a movie tonight and will carry the game in primetime on Tuesday.

Will make up date be on NBC (all areas)?

NBC local area only?

NBC local area only + NFL ST?
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

And these folks have never seen or driven in snow before? If the NFL wants to be a bunch of wussies and claim they concerned about their fans safety (and the snow) maybe they should end their season before Thanksgiving or only hold games in warm climate areas during the month of December.

Essentially, if the game was played at it's original time, it was no problem. Two weeks ago, NBC moved the game to a prime slot. Thus, the headache.

NBC was uncertain what it would broadcast Sunday night in place of the game, although a spokesman said the regular Football Night in America would be on the air from 7 p.m.-8:30 p.m. ET.

NBC could just put "Minute to Win it" and "Biggest Loser" on tonight, since it was supposed to be shown on Tuesday, and the NFL game on Tuesday. Basically just swap the program dates.

The question comes in then, are those new programs on Tuesday night or reruns? If they are new then I suspect they might have an issue with the producers. Preempting a new show is one thing but swapping out the night with another for one week without any kind of notice or promos is another.

My guess is we can look forward to a couple of reruns of Law & Order:SVU

Snow is one thing, blizzards are a bit different.

The game (also known as the Philly Blizzard) was played at Philadelphia's Shibe Park on December 19, 1948 during a significant snowstorm. Bert Bell, commissioner of the NFL had considered postponing the game but the players for both teams wanted to play the game. The attendance for the game was 36,309. The teams played a scoreless game until early in the fourth quarter when, after Chicago had fumbled in their own end of the field, the Eagles recovered the fumble that set up Steve Van Buren's five yard touchdown at 1:05 into the fourth quarter.
