Before you settle in to watch the Eagles vs. Cowboys game at 4:15 p.m. on Sunday, you want to know that it matters, right? Even if Andy Reid does not ...
The Oakland Raiders at Tampa Bay game at 1 p.m. will be shown locally by CBS3, a station spokeswoman confirmed today. The station just learned it would be able to show the game this morning.
Also before the Eagles take the field, Chicago is at Houston and the Giants visit Minnesota, with both games having playoff implications. Fox29 will air Giants-Vikings in the 1 p.m. window, followed by the Eagles game at 4:15.
Asked Monday whether he would rather not know whether the Eagles were still alive, Reid said: "Yeah, but that's probably not realistic in this day-in-age of technology. I said this before, you can't worry about all the different things that you can't control. You just have to go play, that's the important thing."
