Here in Detroit, there is a little bit of snow on the ground but certainly nothing that was going to affect the team’s trip today and again, with the dome situation, definitely nothing that will mess with tomorrow’s game. The same can’t be said for the 49ers’ game in Philadelphia, since Philly is one of the eastern cities getting hammered with the snow right now. The NFL officially pushed kickoff back of the Eagles-49ers game from 11 a.m. Arizona time (same as Cards-Lions) to 2:15 p.m., meaning the Cards — assuming a win tomorrow — will be on a plane when they could conceivably clinch the NFC West title. That happens with a Cards’ win and 49ers’ loss.
Of course, the 49ers may actually benefit from bad weather, because the Eagles’ offense has been so explosive of late, you figure bad weather may be the only thing that could help slow it.
Anyway, the Cards have to take care of their end first. That can’t happen until tomorrow, a few blocks from the Westin here in downtown Detroit.
