Weather could affect several games on Sunday


As the calendar creeps deeper into December, the weather becomes more and more of a factor in several cities.

Which is fitting because, in eight weeks, Super Bowl XLVIII will be played outdoors in New York (OK, New Jersey).

For Week 14, weather could be a factor in Baltimore,  Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Green Bay, Washington, and Denver.  (All forecast info comes from the hour-by-hour forecasts for each city at

In Baltimore, where the Ravens host the Vikings, the forecast calls for temperatures in the low 30s and snow.  The wind is projected to be under 10 miles per hour.

In Philadelphia, snow could arrive for the second half of the Lions-Eagles game.  Temperatures will be in the low 30s, with light winds.

On the other side of the Commonwealth, light snow and temperatures in the high 20s will be present throughout the game between the Dolphins and Steelers.  The wind is predicted to be in the range of 11 miles per hour.  (While hardly South Florida conditions, it’s a major improvement over the 2007 non-bouncing-punt game between the same two teams.)

In Cincinnati, light snow will turn to freezing drizzle during the game between the Colts and the Bengals, with temperatures hovering near freezing.  The wind will be in the range of 10 miles per hour.

In Green Bay, the Falcons (unlike last Sunday) won’t get to swap a road game in the elements for a dome game.  When Atlanta faces the Packers snow will be falling at Lambeau Field and the tundra will be, well, tundra, with temperatures in the teens.

In Washington (OK, Landover), snow will give way to a wintry mix, with the temperature holding steady at 32 and the winds under 10 miles per hour.

Finally, the Titans won’t get their wish for snow in Denver.  While it’ll be sunny, it also will be cold for the game against the Broncos, with a temperature in the teens and light winds.

For Browns-Patriots in Foxboro and Raiders-Jets in New York (OK, New Jersey), the temperature will be in the low 30s but no precipitation or significant wind is in the forecast.

To any of the men attending any of these games, it’s once again three-sock time. For everyone enjoying the games at home, the third sock is optional.

    Weather definitely plays a part… I wonder what the Vikings excuse for only winning 22 out of their last 60 games is.

    The forecast in Baltimore calls for mediocrity at quarterback.

    Yet another reason why I prefer to watch games on tv

    It will certainly keep out all the bandwagon packer fans

    Oh, Pittsburgh, beautiful Pittsburgh, how we love you.

    Wow. And I thought it only snowed in Buffalo!

    Love these weather games from the comfy sofa. Only time a beer ever froze before I could finish it was at Heinz Field.

    So, snow, temp in the teens, will affect a game but not attendance so you can take a cheap shot at the Packers and their fans.

    I’ll be watching it all on a comfy warm chair by a fire on a 65″, but in brotherhood for all my fellow fans out there… I will keep my hand in the Beer Cooler for an extra 20 seconds each time I grab a cold one for comraderie.

    The Vikings deal with element of futility!

    Chip Kellys 11 headed offensive monster machine tour 2013 is impervious to weather. Foles rips his balls through small holes with passion. The will crank out Lions bones by games end. And theres simply nothing anyone can do about it.

    Love it, it’s Real Football weather in Philly, it will be a great day….EAGLES!!!!!!!!

  18. kingpel says: Dec 8, 2013 10:45 AM

    And I am stuck in Tampa where it is 80 degrees every single day. Enjoy the elements! This is football!

    It’s snowing in Denver right now, Sunday morning…so good forecasting there. Hopefully the Titans pound MegaHead hard into the frozen turf.

    Tomlin needs to wear his boots because a snowy field could get slippery.
