What’s the weather forecast for the Bills’ playoff game against the Patriots?


The last time the Buffalo Bills faced the New England Patriots at Orchard Park, Mac Jones’ passing attempts were in single digits. This time it will be the single digit temperature.

It’s going to be freezing in Orchard Park with sub-zero wind chills for the AFC Wild-Card Round game on Saturday night.

The field team may have snow to clear from the field at Highmark Stadium prior to the match. There is a 30% chance of flurries between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturday.

The weather will be cloudy and cold with a high of almost 9 degrees. The kick-off is at 8:15 p.m. and the mercury will drop further because it will be well after sunset. The minimum will drop to around 0 degrees.

The wind won’t be as strong as the teams’ first meeting with expected gusts of 5-10 mph, but the wind chill could be below zero. If the temperature on the ground is 5 degrees and the wind speed is 8 mph, the National Weather Service’s wind chill calculator indicates that the air will feel like 8 below zero on your body.

Some players prefer not to wear long sleeves, even in freezing weather. The National Weather Service warms sub-zero wind chills that could cause frostbite on exposed skin in as little as 30 minutes.

The division’s rivals will meet for the third time this year. New England won 14-10 at Monday Night Football on December 6, in a night of 55 mph gusty winds that hit Highmark Stadium. The Patriots ran the ball 46 times for 222 yards. The Bills have won 4 of 5 games since, including a 33-21 triumph over the Patriots on the road that took control of the division.
