The Philadelphia Eagles’ Week 17 game against the New Yorks Giants at MetLife Stadium has been officially flexed to a 4:25 PM Eastern start time, according to an official announcement from the league. Adjust your schedules accordingly.
The Eagles and Giants were previously set to kick off at 1:00 PM but now the league wants more eyes on a game that has playoff implications. The Eagles can officially clinch the NFC East with a win over New York next Sunday.
The Dallas Cowboys’ Week 17 home game against Washington has also been flexed from 1:00 PM to 4:25 PM. The Eagles and Cowboys playing at the same time ensures both teams will play to win as opposed to waiting to see what happens with the outcome of the other game.
The Eagles are 1-1 in two late afternoon start times this year. They lost to the New England Patriots back in Week 11 but they just beat the Cowboys in Week 16.
