Anyone who bought tickets to the Week 17 matchup between the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles will need to re-check their schedules.

It's been announced that this matchup will be flexed from its original 1:00 p.m. ET slot to 4:25 p.m. ET.

Originally, there were a full 13 games scheduled for 1:00 p.m. ET in Week 17, and the NFL was obviously waiting for the outcomes of today's matchups in order to determine which games would be flexed to 4:05 p.m. or 4:25 p.m.

With the Eagles set to snatch a playoff spot from the arms of the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC, having defeated them in Week 16, they'll need to beat the Giants in order to successfully clinch the berth. Now, that game will take place a few hours later, considering its importance.

The Eagles will have a national audience watching to see whether Carson Wentz and Co. can finish the job and lead the Eagles to the playoffs, or blow this golden opportunity.
