WASHINGTON — After some rain moves through most of the Mid-Atlantic States
on Saturday with an area of low pressure trekking across the southeastern
United States, we dry out for Sunday across a lot of the NFL stadiums with
some rain chances here and some snow chances there. All in all, another great
Sunday with a few systems we will have to keep a close eye on as we near NFL
Sunday Week 14.
St. Louis Rams at Washington Redskins, FedEx Field: After a wet
Saturday (yes, a soggy field is a good possibility), we dry out on Sunday in
the Nation’s Capital. However, it will be windy with winds around 20 mph out
of the north at kickoff and around 15 mph by the fourth quarter (gradually
decreasing). Temps will top out in the mid-40s with sunshine but wind chills
will be in the mid to upper 30s with dry conditions.
Baltimore Ravens at Miami Dolphins, Sun Life Stadium: A
beautiful day in Miami with all sunshine. It will be a perfect day as
temperatures teeter around the mid-70s for the game. Winds will not be a
factor, 5-10 mph range out of the northeast.
Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals, Paul Brown Stadium: A
rainy Saturday will lead to a dry Sunday (and another wet field players will
have to deal with). Temperatures will hang in the lower 40s for much of the
game with plenty of sunshine. Winds will be on the light side, around 5-10 mph
out of the east.
NY Jets at Minnesota Vikings, TCF Bank Stadium: We will have to
watch an area of low pressure move along the US/Canadian border on Sunday.
There is a chance of some frozen precip as well as some light snow on Sunday
afternoon. Temperatures will have to be closely monitored but looking like low
30s with the best chance of light snow showers for the game in the second
half. Winds will be breezy out of the SSE at 15 mph with wind chills around 20
NY Giants at Tennessee Titans, LP Field: Another great day for
football — and mild too! Temperatures will stick around 50 degrees in
Nashville with a mix of sun and clouds and winds around northeast at 5-10 mph.
Indianapolis Colts at Cleveland Browns, First Energy Stadium:
All sunshine in Cleveland! It will be chilly though, with temperatures in the
mid-30s and winds consistent out of the east at 10 mph. This will bring the
wind chill or the “feel-like factor” in the mid-20s for the duration of the
Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars, Everbank Field: What a
beautiful/perfect day! Temperatures in the mid to upper 60s with mostly sunny
to partly cloudy skies. Winds will be just slightly on the breezy side, out of
the northeast at 10-15 mph.
Buffalo Bills at Denver Broncos, Sports Authority Field at Mile
High: All sunshine through the game and nothing to worry about!
Temperatures will be falling through the 50s with winds out of the west at 5
Seattle Seahawks at Philadelphia Eagles, The Linc: The sun will set
at 4:35 p.m., shortly after kickoff. After a wet Saturday, clear skies will
reign for this afternoon game. Winds will still be a little on the brisk and
breezy side, moving out of the north at 10-15 mph. Wind chills will be in the
lower 30s with temperatures falling out of the lower 40s and into the upper
30s by the fourth quarter.
San Francisco 49ers at Oakland Raiders, O.co Coliseum: Rain
chances increase late but I believe most (if not all) of the game will be dry.
Partly cloudy skies with winds on the light side with temperatures in the mid-
New England Patriots at San Diego Chargers, Qualcomm Stadium: Looking
great (of course) for Sunday Night Football in Southern California.
Temperatures will stay in the lower 60s with all sunshine. Winds will be
northwest at 5 mph.
