Here we go, folks! It is week one for the 2014 NFL Playoffs where it’s a new season and the real run to the Super Bowl XLVIII begins. Tonight marks the third week in a row the Philadelphia Eagles have been featured on prime time. No other team has had that honor in NFL history. The Eagles are having a magical season this year. Look for that trend to continue tonight as they take on the New Orleans Saints.
Game-time temperature will be 25 degrees. The Saints have struggled playing outside and tonight’s bitter cold could prove to be a huge challenge for the Saints. The passing game may be limited with such bitter temperatures. If that is the case we could be treated to a running show featuring Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean “Shady” McCoy.
The game will be televised on NBC tonight. Kickoff is scheduled for approximately 8:09 PM. The Kickoff Show begins at 7:30 PM. The usual suspects are expected to host the game. Al Michaels serves as the play-by-play announcer with Chris Collinsworth as the analyst. Michele Tafoya will serve as the sideline reporter.
