No games that are a must fade… but plenty of games that could see at least some weather impact:
PIT @ BUF
Looking like mostly light snow here, potentially some moderate snow if we get caught in a heavier band. Total gametime snow accumulation maybe 1/2 to 1 inch, with the heavier stuff falling after the game. If any impact here, I’d say slight bump down to kickers, slight bump up to RBs.
SD @ CAR
Low chance of a rain shower, more likely after the game. No/low impact or concern.
CIN @ CLE
A bit more snow here, though a fairly quiet now. We should see snow pick up a bit as the game gets going. Total snowfall still not all that impressive or scary, aprox 1inch during the game, but we also have winds to add in here, which makes this a little less appealing to me. Sustained winds around 15mph. Definite bump down to kickers for wind / light snow, minor impact to passing game possible, but I’m far from a “full-fade”.
ARI @ MIA
A lot of talk and concern about winds here, but it doesn’t look particularly windy when compared to some other games this same week. Sustained winds will hover around 15mph, maybe a few mph’s above that at times. Bump down kickers, low passing impact if anything, but not the death sentence to offense people have been concerned with. Passing rain showers also possible.
WASH @ PHI
Slight chance of flurries = no worries.
DEN @ TEN
Winds around 15mph sustained, with some healthy gusts mixed in (up to 30mph). A rain shower is possible, but more likely after the game. The usual bump down to kickers, maybe a slight bump down to deep passing.
SEA @ GB
Plenty of snow leading up to the game (coated in snow currently), but just light snow and some light freezing drizzle falling during the game. I am definitely worried about footing here, so I’m full fade on the kickers, slight tick up to RB’s.
NO @ TB
Low chance of a passing rain shower, no real concerns.
DAL @ NYG
A few snow showers, but not looking like a big impact here.
BAL @ NE
Precip here should be long gone by kickoff.
That’s all for now, follow along on Twitter, @KevinRothWx.
Also, good luck to all the RG peeps (working for RG or a consistent RG reader) in the live final tonight!
