It’s shaping up to be one of “those” weekends as far as the weather goes. There are numerous issues throughout the country that we’ll be dealing with during the weekend including our first snow game of the year! What a difference a week makes. Check out below for a breakdown of each (outdoor) game coming up!

Check out the forecasts and bounce that off of Matt DiSorbo’s Whether Weather Really Matters article to see how your game may be impacted by weather.

Remember – games in domes are NOT listed!

Early Afternoon Games

Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers 

LOW impact. There’s going to be some precipitation in and around Lambeau Sunday morning, by game time I’m expecting it to be primarily rain. The good news is it won’t be a massive amount. Winds will be in the single digits with high temps in the low-40s.

Atlanta Falcons @ Tennessee Titans

LOW impactThere is going to be some rain around the Nashville area, but it’s looking to be fairly light. Just keep an eye on the pregame conditions to see how much the stadium is getting. Winds will be fairly light with high temps in the mid-70s.

New England Patriots @ Miami Dolphins

LOW impact. The biggest impact for this game will be winds which are expected to be sustained in the mid-teens with gusts up to the mid-20s. If you can flex your kicker from this game to another, it might be a good option. There’s a small chance of rain (20%) but I’m not too worried about it.

New York Jets @ New York Giants

MEDIUM impact. Expect some rain on and off throughout the game, it looks like most of the heavier stuff will be before kickoff but there will still be lingering showers. Winds will be fairly light and temps in the high-50s. Definitely lean towards starting RBs in this game.

Jacksonville Jaguars @ Pittsburgh Steelers 

MEDIUM impact. This will be a wet game in Pittsburgh. There will be rain throughout the majority of the game. The saving grace is that it won’t be super heavy but more of a persistent light rain. I’d look for other options particularly with WRs and QBs if you have them. Winds will be light and high temp will be in the upper-50s.

Philadelphia Eagles @ Washington Commanders

LOW impact. There is a slight chance of rain (30%) around the D.C. area at game time but the showers look to be fairly light, so no big impacts if the rain moves over the stadium. High in the low-70s with light winds, start all players as normal.

Houston Texans @ Carolina Panthers

LOW impact. Expect a high temp in the low-80s with winds in the single digits, great day for football in Carolina (weather-wise anyway).

Afternoon Games

Cleveland Browns @ Seattle Seahawks

LOW impact. The biggest issue during this game will be the relatively cool temps with a high of 53° during game time, but I don’t see it significantly impacting either team. Winds will be relatively light and there is no rain expected. Play all your usual players.

Kansas City Chiefs @ Denver Broncos

HIGH impact. Our first snow game of the year is here Footballers! The city of Denver is currently under a Winter Storm Warning which is, as of this writing, set to expire at noon local time on Sunday. The heaviest snow will likely be moved off the field but there is a possibility of another 1-3 inches of snow falling on Sunday. Additionally, it’s going to be a cold one with a high temp of 29°. This type of weather will favor your RBs and cause some issues for your pass catchers and kickers. Keep an eye on the conditions throughout today and tomorrow and be ready to flex.

Cincinnati Bengals @ San Francisco 49ers

LOW impact. High temps in the low-70s, looking at slightly increased winds with sustained winds in the high single digits and gusts up to the mid-teens but not expecting that to cause any impact.

Remember that weather, just like football, is a dynamic thing and can change!  Good luck!
