This season’s first snow game could come on Sunday in Denver

Can snow slow down the Rams’ fast-paced offense? We might find out on Sunday.

Although football in the snow is most commonly seen in December, this season’s first snow game may come on October 14, when the Broncos host the Rams. The current forecast for Sunday in Denver calls for a high of 31, a low of 16 and snow showers in the morning.

That kind of weather may be good news for the Broncos, who would like all the help they can get to rein in the Rams’ offense, which has been flying high all season. With the Rams going from sunny Los Angeles to freezing Denver, the elements could be good news for the home team.

Denver weather is notoriously unpredictable, but there’s little doubt that Sunday’s game will be the coldest in the NFL this season so far — by far.

  1. Based on what I’ve seen from the Broncos defense this year the only way I see him slowing down the Rams offense is to throw snowballs in their faces.

  2. Fact: Broncos are not snow animals, Rams are.

    Philip Lindsay and Royce Freeman will loose significant mobility in that sort of whether which will play right into the strength of the LA defense. They’re front group will be the focus of the game and lucky for the Rams the only weakness on the defense is in the secondary. HOWEVER McVay is not a cold whether coach. Should be an interesting game, but expect the Rams to roll as Denver is plagued by their own decision of creating a speed-based team in the middle of ski country.

  3. Won’t matter, Vance Joseph has to be the worst in game coach in the NFL. He’ll say after the game that the field was slick and they will know next time to wear shoes with longer cleats.

  4. You gotta love Denver. Less than a month ago we had the hottest kickoff temp ever recorded at Mile High(in the 90s).

  5. Global warming, uh, apparently smoking dope affects the earths climate…

    What’s it matter, according to the UN, we only have 10 years to live! Yet I heard this before in the 1980’s, then early 2000’s from Al Gore…I’m guessing some “researchers” are running out of money…

    You do realize it is not actual animals playing the game, right?

    That said, I have always thought that wind is far more of an issue for a passing game than rain or snow. That is especially true with the gloves most players now wear. In fact, with wet or snowy conditions, it can be more likely that a defender slips and leaves a receiver wide open. Add in that the Rams have a strong running game, and the weather shouldn’t cause them any specific issues.

  7. I live in Buffalo and our weather is crazy we have a high of 80 degrees today and the low on friday and saturday is 40 degrees. But Denver is possibly more crazy, they have many days over 100 degrees in the summer like a desert climate but has freezing cold snow days in the winter along with being a mile in the sky. Wearas you have Los Angeles where the Rams come from, they have pretty much the same weather every single day, sunny, and partly cloudy, the whole year through.

    So much for that UN global warming alert they issued yesterday….LOL!

    ——

    you are basing the climate of the entire planet on what happens in Denver this Sunday?

  9. Unlike the typical warm weather/dome teams, the Rams have a strong running game behind a very good offensive line.

  10. but….but…..global warming…..er “climate change”…is it not true like everyone says? [sarcasm alert]
    Yes, it’s true. “global warming” aka “climate change” is a hoax.
    Denver and the rest of the northern U.S. gets cold earlier than the south….even though Al Gore and the academic/institutional left claimed that the Earth would be a massive volcano unless everyone started driving Priuses, have abortions, stop cow farts, and donate to left-wing causes.
    Go Broncos.

  11. just saying, the cold on Sunday here in Denver really has nothing to do with global warming, if you think it does you probably also think all of Bronco’s woes fall on the QB, #4. That being said, I love it, love the unpredictable weather we get here, never boring. Hope Broncos can find something. I don’t think the current coach is the answer, hope Keenum can have some time to play his game. Run the Ball!

  12. I guess that means they will be changing out the footballs at halftime, because ummm, they’re wet. Yeah, that’s it.

    Of course the polar icecaps were melted in 2014
