Due to a blizzard headed toward Philadelphia, which forced the Eagles to push their home game with the Minnesota Vikings from Sunday night to Tuesday, the team will have just two days of practice in preparation for the regular season finale against your Dallas Cowboys.
Eagles head coach Andy Reid told reporters recently that his team would have Wednesday off, before practicing on Thursday and Friday. However, Reid doesn’t believe the quick turnaround will present any real problems for his team, which clinched the NFC East on Sunday, as the Giants lost to the Green Bay Packers.
“I don't think it's a problem,” Reid said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I think we'll be all right. We've had Monday games, Sunday night games, we had a Thursday game, so we've been through a lot of this already, and that will help us. We'll be fine.”
Philadelphia can clinch a first round bye with victories over Minnesota Tuesday, and Dallas Sunday.
