Weather will be an issue for several Sunday games, again

Getty Images

Last weekend, thunderstorms created issues at a couple of NFL games, particularly in Chicago.  This weekend, cold and/or wind could impact several games.

In New York (OK, New Jersey), where the Giants will be hosting the Cowboys, winds will whip in the range of 25 to 35 miles per hour, with gusts exceeding 40 miles per hour.  The high temperature will be 31 degrees.

Similar conditions are expected in Baltimore, where New York’s other team will be visiting the Ravens.  The high will be 36 degrees, and the wind will range from 25 to 35 miles per hour.

In Green Bay, where the Packers welcome the Vikings, the high temperature will be 26 degrees.

In Cleveland, the latest Steelers-Browns game also will feature a high temperature of 26 — along with snow showers and winds in the range of 20-to-30 miles per hour.

And for Sunday night’s Broncos-Patriots game at Foxborough, temperatures could drop into the teens, along with winds in the 25-to-35 mile-per-hour range.

So enjoy the games.  If you’re attending any of the ones listed above, make sure you wear a third sock.

    Not in Detroit because were not stupid enough to have an outdoor stadium in the midwest

    I hope the San Diego Chargers are freezing their “beach bum” butts off in Arrowhead tomorrow.

    “make sure [you] wear a third sock.”

    Especially good advice if your name is Flea.

    Sounds like a great day for some NFL football.

    I always throw on a third “sock” when going into nasty places

  8. dickshotdogs says: Nov 24, 2013 12:16 AM

    And where shall I wear my third sock?

  9. GenXJay says: Nov 24, 2013 12:21 AM

    as if the cheesebay fans do not have enough excuses. Now, weather.

  10. jimw81 says: Nov 24, 2013 12:28 AM

    Football is supposed to be played in cold weather.

  11. bmoreravens1012013 says: Nov 24, 2013 12:31 AM

    Me being the tough guy that I am (ahem)…needless to say I won’t be wearing any socks Florio. That’s because I’ll be on my warm and comfortable….wait for it……..couch.

    Glad to live in the Orlando area where it was 81 degrees on Saturday and on Sunday it will be windy but the daytime high is 68.

  13. seatownballers says: Nov 24, 2013 12:41 AM

    Doesn’t really matter, Vikings still suck

    Third sock?Nice.

  16. zetotalpackage says: Nov 24, 2013 12:51 AM

    It will be interesting to see how Manning fares in a cold-weather game.

  17. patssox says: Nov 24, 2013 12:55 AM

    Weather is never an issue for football players. This isn’t baseball!

  18. 4512dawg4512 says: Nov 24, 2013 1:08 AM

    Sounds like there’s gonna be a lot of running in Cleveland since they’re too dumb to start Weeden and Campbell cant throw it in those conditions. Good thing we have Bobby Rainey, oops…. they were too dumb to keep him too. Oh well, at least I have beer in the fridge

  19. DonRSD says: Nov 24, 2013 1:09 AM

    I still have the central AC running 24/7 down here in South Florida 🙂

  20. mrpeary3189 says: Nov 24, 2013 1:11 AM

    Not in Arizona. Retractable roof baby! Ain’t technology great?

  21. purplengold says: Nov 24, 2013 1:18 AM

    the frozen tundra of Lambeau field…

  22. silvernblak says: Nov 24, 2013 1:27 AM

    Why would I pay $150 To freeze my ads off, chewy $10 Beer when I can sit next to a fire, watch NFL ticket and buy a 12 Pack all for about $20. While Roger Godhell takes my time, My money, and my enthusiasm for the game while sitting on frozen bleacher? hello???

    ” If you’re attending any of the ones listed above, make sure your wear a third sock.”

    LOL! Might be Florio’s best line yet. I will be at the Pats game so thanks for the advice.

  24. sowcrates says: Nov 24, 2013 1:46 AM

    25 mph gusts (as opposed to a storm-induced constant 25+ mph wind) and temperatures in the 20s is about as normal as you can get for the beginning of December.

  25. kilo0986 says: Nov 24, 2013 1:49 AM

    Classic NFL weather. Where other sports fear to tread, the NFL embraces it willingly.

  26. northstarnic says: Nov 24, 2013 1:50 AM

    A third sock. Nice.

  27. mtstrecker says: Nov 24, 2013 1:58 AM

    The Autumn Wind is a Raider.

  28. salscobrakai says: Nov 24, 2013 2:09 AM

    That NYC (Jersey) Super Bowl just sounds better and better.

    “If you’re attending any of the ones listed above, make sure your wear a third sock.”

    And just where are you suggesting wearing the third sock? LOL…

    Anyways, hopefully the cold weather will make the Bronco’s Bobblehead become brittle, and when he get’s sacked, he’ll shatter. I’ve had enough of this tool on Prime Time. Give other teams a chance. The Broncos are on Prime Time every week, and I am sick of it.

  30. titsburghfeelers says: Nov 24, 2013 2:28 AM

    I already wear a third sock, I call it birth control.

    “And for Sunday night’s Broncos-Patriots game at Foxborough, temperatures could drop into the teens, along with winds in the 25-to-35 mile-per-hour range”

    Uh oh, Peytons kryptonite. Watch as the line moves from Pats 2.5 dogs to a push.

    It’s winter in the Northern Hemisphere, it happens every year.

    Everyday many people, including the elderly and children, have to work and/or go to school….maybe waiting at a bus stop. Many of them will be doing that in old sneakers and layers of hand-me-down Wal-Mart clothing.

    Your local letter carrier, police officer, firefighter, EMT’s, street & sanitation workers, utility workers, truck drivers, delivery people, parking attendants, toll takers, fishermen, farmers, military and many others have to sit, stand, walk and work in “the weather” for 8 hours or more every day. (Try standing watch/guard at the Korean DMZ, or rescuing a fishing boat off the Alaskan or Maine coast in this weather.)

    Poor, poor millionaire players, in the peak health of their lives, along with their latest specially “engineered” uniforms, have to go out and sit around jet-powered heaters… and tended to by their private doctors, trainers and physical therapists. Maybe they’re lucky enough to play in a domed stadium.

    You think weather affects the flight of that ball? The footing of a 300 lb lineman? Try controlling 20 tons of frozen produce, coming down out of the Rockies on I-80! Somehow, as a blue-collar working stiff, I just can’t relate to their hardships.

    Looks like Eli Manning will have the opportunity to add to his league lead in interceptions.

  34. oldcracker says: Nov 24, 2013 3:05 AM

    The game was pioneered in cold-weather states.

    Some of the best games I’ve seen were in rain, snow and mud. Indoor stadiums should be limited to Arena Football.

  35. akboot says: Nov 24, 2013 3:08 AM

    This is football the way I like it.

  36. yankeejim23 says: Nov 24, 2013 3:11 AM

    Where do they suggest I wear that 3rd sock???????

  37. bears354 says: Nov 24, 2013 3:13 AM

    Well, yeah, it’s football.

  38. mackcarrington says: Nov 24, 2013 3:22 AM

    Goodell is considering ordering all outdoor open-air stadiums to construct domes so that the playing environment can be controlled.

  39. tvjules says: Nov 24, 2013 3:54 AM

    Peyton struggles in cold weather. Advantage: Brady

  40. purple1967 says: Nov 24, 2013 4:27 AM

    That’s good “hitting” weather baby!!!,,,,,And my Vikings passing game looks to be primed for another awful day, weather not withstanding.

  41. monsterscream says: Nov 24, 2013 5:50 AM

    It’s beginning to look a lot like Playoffs
    Ev’rywhere you go;
    Take a look when it’s 1st and 10
    hope the team can convert and win
    With alcohol and HD screens aglow.

  42. fnf417 says: Nov 24, 2013 6:02 AM

    I wonder how manning is gonna hold up in these conditions with his brittle self

  43. 7mantel says: Nov 24, 2013 6:34 AM

    Old time football before domes !

  44. drednot says: Nov 24, 2013 6:45 AM

    Ah, REAL football!!!! The way it’s supposed to be played!

  45. allhailkingflacco says: Nov 24, 2013 6:55 AM

    In addition to the third sock, warm, happy thoughts while humming the tune “Chestnuts On An Open Fire” is recommended.

  46. bobleblah says: Nov 24, 2013 7:02 AM


  47. iamthefootballjerk says: Nov 24, 2013 7:03 AM

    Global warming at its finest. 🙂

  48. peytonsneck18 says: Nov 24, 2013 7:04 AM

    yes i know just where my 3rd sock will be hanging from 😉

  49. 7mantel says: Nov 24, 2013 7:21 AM

    Football like I remember !

  50. boogymanoflamancha says: Nov 24, 2013 7:32 AM

    Windy and cold at a football game?…shocking!

  51. keltictim says: Nov 24, 2013 7:36 AM

    Third sock. I get it. That’s pretty funny right there.

  52. 17dayz says: Nov 24, 2013 7:36 AM

    that’s right, Bob Kraft is behind the late season schedule and inclement weather vs Manning.

  53. stellarperformance says: Nov 24, 2013 7:48 AM

    Please don’t start with the home field advantage of cold weather games. Nobody likes it, home team or visitors. The team that wins in cold weather usually has a roster with the most players that simply love the game. The guys that do it because it’s their job…….they lose.

    Which brings up the point of why I personally love attending cold weather games. It gives me and the fans around me the opportunity to connect, albeit at a small level, but nonetheless, I feel connected when I am enduring the same pitiful conditions in which I expect the team I am cheering for to perform.

    You can have your butt-formed temperature-controlled drink-holding wuss-coddling pre-spaced seats. I’d rather watch it at home if that were the choice. I like feeling connected. That’s why Lambeau and a few select outdoor venues are special. It’s real.

    Go Pack.

    And in other news, the NFL is wondering “What were we thinking awarding the SuperBowl in February to a city like New York”.

  55. vottorific says: Nov 24, 2013 7:51 AM

    Third sox. HAHAHAHA. That’s rich Florio!

  56. monstersofthemidway545051 says: Nov 24, 2013 9:51 AM

    A third sock – great line.

  57. pemory says: Nov 24, 2013 11:04 AM

    Attended an FCS game here in rural Utah yesterday. The temperature hovered around 30 and snow fell throught. At one point the guy behind me said “Now this is football weather!” Amen. Still, nice to be able to watch the NFL indoors and on the couch today….
