If you have tickets to the return of former Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford and the Vikes on Oct. 23 at the Linc, the time has been set:

An Eagles spokesman confirmed that the game is set for a 1 p.m. start.

The NFL could have chosen to flex the game between the Vikings (5-0) and Eagles (3-1) to the prime time slot at 8:30 p.m., or even to the National Game of the Week and make it a 4:25 p.m. start.

The Sunday Night Football Game on NBC that week is the Seattle Seahawks and the Arizona Cardinals. The only 4:25 game scheduled for Oct. 23 is a CBS game between two of the top teams in the AFC, the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
