Worst Weather Games
Carolina Panthers vs. Baltimore Ravens
Now that the Bills-Browns game has been moved to Detroit, this game is probably the worst on the slate when it comes to weather. The temperature will be between 30 and 30 and the sky will be clear, but the wind could be a factor. Sustained winds are forecast to be 15-20 mph, while gusting could pick up into the mid-30s. The wind will decrease as the day progresses, so those numbers could drop.
Detroit Lions vs. New York Giants
The Lions and Giants should have similar weather in New Jersey as the Ravens and Panthers, with just a little low wind. High around 38 degrees, sunny skies and sustained wind around 15-20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph. Both of these games could wreak havoc on long kicks and deep throws.
New York Jets vs. New England Patriots
Another game with similar forecast, but sustained winds expected to be around 9-18 mph gusting to the mid 30s. Highs of 38 and clear skies like previous games.
Best time games
Washington Commanders at Houston Texans
There is a 20% chance of rain with a high of 52 in Houston. Yes, it’s winter in Texas. Winds will be 5-10 mph which is great for football.
Las Vegas Raiders vs. Denver Broncos
Perfect weather in Denver for football as winds will be around 5 mph, skies will be clear and temperatures will be in the mid 40’s.
Cincinnati Bengals vs Pittsburgh Steelers
This game has some of that wind that they see further north, but with sustained winds of 10-15 mph and gusts in the low 20s, that shouldn’t be a problem. The high will be around 30 degrees with clear skies.
Kansas City Chiefs vs. Los Angeles Chargers
Clear skies, light winds and temperatures in the mid 60’s and the drop won’t slow these fleeting infractions.
