Philadelphia, PA (Northland's NewsCenter) --- ESPN is reporting that a blizzard expected to move through Philadelphia Sunday afternoon has prompted the NFL to postpone the Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles game until Tuesday night.

The mayor of Philadelphia declared a snow emergency in the city starting at 2 p.m. ET because of the expected storm, which could drop up to 20 inches of snow on the area.

The game is now scheduled to be played on Tuesday night starting at 7 p.m. CST.

This marks the third consecutive week the Vikings have been affected by snow.

Their game on December 12 was postponed and moved to Detroit because the teflon roof of the Metrodome tore after Minneapolis got 15 inches of snow.

Last week, the Vikes played at the outdoor TCF Bank Stadium, again because of the torn roof at the Metrodome.
