Worst Weather Games
New York Jets vs. Denver Broncos
Brett Rypien will start this week for Russell Wilson and will face strong winds. Current forecasts call for a westerly wind of 11-21 mph, with gusts of up to 37 mph. There is a 30% chance of showers, with a maximum near 65.
Kansas City Chiefs vs. San Francisco 49ers
The best game on the slate will likely have wind gusts up to 25 mph, but most of the time we will see winds of 5-15 mph. I wouldn’t downgrade either offense for this one. Temperatures will be in the mid 60s and there is no rain in the forecast.
Chicago Bears vs. New England Patriots
Monday Night Football is still a few days away, but right now there’s a 70% chance of rain, with winds of 10-15 mph and gusts of up to 25 mph. Temperatures should be around 50 degrees.
Best time games

There is a slight chance of rain in Baltimore at around 30%, but for the most part the weather should be fine. The temperature will reach the 60s and the wind will be 5-10 mph.
Green Bay Packers at Washington Commanders
Taylor Heinicke’s first start this season shouldn’t be hampered by the weather, as temperatures will be in the mid-60s, the wind will be light and the chance of rain low, at around 25%.
Indianapolis Colts vs. Tennessee Titans
There’s not much to report from Nashville, as winds will be 5-10 mph, skies will be sunny, and temperatures will be in the 70s.
New York Giants vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Duval County will have an 8-13 mph northerly wind, but that shouldn’t be much of an obstacle. Temperatures will be in the 70s with no rain in sight.

Charlotte, North Carolina seems like a great place to watch football on Sunday. Humidity will be low and temperatures will be in the 70s with no rain or light winds.
