The Eagles' game against the New York Giants on Nov. 1 has been moved to a 1 p.m. start to avoid a conflict with a possible World Series game.

Should the Phillies beat the Dodgers in the National League Championship Series, the Phillies would host Game 4 with a likely start time of 8:07.

Eagles-Giants had been scheduled for 4:15. The NFL moved the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers to 4:15 to accomodate an earlier start at Lincoln Financial Field.

The World Series and both football games are scheduled to be shown on Fox.

"The game-time changes have been made prior to the outcome of the NLCS to give fans of all four NFL teams involved as much advance notice as possible," the NFL said in a statement.

The NFL said the change "will help ease the burden on city service and law enforcement personnel who work at the two Philadelphia stadiums and staff the parking lots shared by the teams."

Birds add Woodson

The Eagles signed cornerback Stoney Woodson to the practice squad and released linebacker Jeremy Leman.

Woodson, 24, was drafted by the New York Giants in the seventh round in 2009 and played in two preseason games before being released Sept. 6. In those two games, he totaled five tackles and one interception.

Leman was signed during the first week of the season after he was cut by Carolina. The thinking at the time was that Leman was brought in because he was familiar with the Panthers, having spent the preseason with them. The Eagles played the Panthers in Week 1.
