Wet weather looks likely for Saturday’s divisional-round games in Seattle and Foxborough, Massachusetts.

Saturday’s slate begins with Saints-Seahawks at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field. According to, there is a 98 percent chance of rain at kickoff at 4:35 p.m. Eastern, with winds close to 20 mph out of the south/southwest also expected. A temperature of 49 degrees is forecast.

In Saturday’s nightcap in Foxborough between the visiting Colts and host Patriots (8:15 p.m. Eastern), rain and winds out of the south at 13 mph are in the forecast, as is a game-time temperature of 52 degrees.

Rain is not expected in the two Sunday games — 49ers-Panthers in Charlotte (1:05 p.m. Eastern) and Chargers-Broncos in Denver (4:40 p.m. Eastern). Cold weather doesn’t look like it will be a factor, with, with temperatures in the low 50s forecast for Charlotte and the low 40s for Denver.

    as of last night, rain has been removed from the game day forecast in Charlotte. That’s too bad because I like the way the Panthers play in the rain.

    I can’t believe it’s going to rain in Seattle?

    because of the rain, it will only be 30-7 Seahawks!

    You can bet that if the Pats win in the rain, the Colts and the NFL will force them to build a dome. Just like they forced them to change from grass to Field Turf…

    Did the Fritz Pollard Alliance approve rain? Probably only consult with Al Roker.

    Seahawks should only play grunge and 90s emo from their PA system

    So the 12th man will be the rain instead of the refs?

    News of note…Wolfe,Vickerson,Mincey,Cromartie, Welker, Bailey, and Harris didn’t play the second game against the Chargers in Denver…They should have all those players but Vickerson back, maybe not Wolfe.

    Chargers are missing key offensive lineman this game…Gulp

    Just seems to be an overrated “upset” pick to me when you account for key players missing on defense

    52 degrees? This time of year in New England, they might as well be playing in a dome at that temperature.

    So of course the question becomes… is that the weather we’re gonna see for the Superbowl next month? Or will it be more like what we saw in Green Bay last weekend?

    Saints 27
    Seahawks 17

    Seahawks=Regular Season Champs!! Congrats Seattle!!

    Cold weather in Denver, eh…?

    This will be Peyton’s 9th one-and-done against Rivers who is perfect in cold weather games, and has the best passer rating and most wins in December/January combined (yes, better than Brady, look it up).

    Not to mention we own Peyton, Rivers owns Mile High, and Peyton is winless against the Chargers in post-season play.

    Temps in the 40’s for Manning will equal four to six touchdown passes. I’d like to see him get some 20 degree games in before the frozen Super Bowl.

    Goodell and his greedy owners at it again. East coast N.E. game should logically be the early game and the Seattle game should be late. Way to force NE/Colts fans to sit in driving rain at 8 pm. Same with Seattle fans. Bet anything that the forecasts are better if the times were switched. They couldn’t be worse, right? $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    colts will win!!!!

    I was walking in Pioneer Square last week and saw a tourist (the hint: he was using an umbrella). A bunch of people got to a corner waiting for the light, and the tourist asked a little kid standing next him, “Hey, I’ve been here a week now. Does it always rain like this in Seattle?” And the kid replied, “How should I know? I’m only eight.”

    Crazy weather. It’s snowing in Mass. today.

  19. metitometin says: Jan 10, 2014 2:57 PM

    Global Warming.

  20. lanman11 says: Jan 10, 2014 3:12 PM

    Downright balmy in New England. But if it rains like it did on Buffalo, the Colts will be in for a double dose of Blountman and Chronic!
