The blizzard that killed the 18-game season?

It's Tuesday Night Football as the Eagles host the Vikings in a game postponed by snow Sunday.
The NFL owners would like to have an 18-game season in the new contract with players, being negotiated now. Under the plan, the season would begin after Labor Day as it does now and go deeper into winter.
Forget about your December blizzards. How about January blizzards before the regular season ends, and playoff games in February blizzards before the Super Bowl. The day after pitchers and catchers report for Spring Training.
If weather is so bad that it ruined the last quarter of the Vikings' season, what awaits with an 18-game season? Something to think about before the talks are finished.
