The forecast in Buffalo for Saturday night calls for a 40 percent chance of snow with accumulation of as much as an inch.

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has never played a snow game.

Zero,” Jackson said, via Jamison Hensley of ESPN. “Saturday would be my first time playing football in the snow, if it does. Hopefully, it don’t.”

Jackson grew up in South Florida. He played his college ball at Louisville, where he saw snow for the first time.

“We had a snowball fight,” Jackson said, “so that’s totally different from playing in it.”

That is why, while everyone watching on TV likely is rooting for a snow game in Buffalo, Jackson hopes not.

  1. The reality is if everyone is slipping around it probably bodes well for the fastest dude who can break ankles with a shoulder shake.

  2. A snow game would be great! and I wouldn’t be surprised to see Lamar, with his athleticism and incredible balance, just tear it up in the snow …. it’s cold, but a lot of fun too.

  3. This will be a fun game to watch. And while I’ll be rooting for the Bills Mafia the snow may hurt Allen far more than Jackson. Wouldn’t be shocked if Ravens throw it less than 10 times all game.

  4. What’s more fun that watching a game of football played in snow…or extreme cold? It’s definitely more fun to watch in a warm, cozy house.

    I was in college in Cincinnati when the Ice Bowl was played. The wind was ridiculous. You could barely go outside without freezing half to death. I couldn’t imagine playing a football game in that.

  5. He plays uncommonly good in horrible weather. He threw for 249yds at a 70% completion rate in a tsunami against the patriots for a 98.8 Passer rating. If it wasn’t for the Patriots running the down baltimores defense’s throat. He would have had a ugly double in inclimate weather.
