PHILADELPHIA -- Are you ready for some (Tuesday night) football?

After a two-day delay caused be predictions of a blizzard, the Vikings and Eagles are scheduled to play tonight at Lincoln Financial Field in a game that will kickoff at around 7 p.m. and be shown nationally on NBC. (There will be no areas of the country that don't get this game).

As for the all-important forecast, it's supposed to be 30 degrees and mostly clearly at kickoff, according to www.weather.com. It will feel as if it's 21 degrees with the wind chill and the winds will be coming from the west at 11 miles per hour.

By the time the game ends, it should be about 28 degrees and feel like 19. The chance of precipitation is at 10 percent throughout the day and night.

This will be the first Tuesday night game since the 1946 season when the visiting New York Giants beat the Boston Yanks, 17-0, on Oct. 1 of that year.
