The Baltimore Ravens host the Indianapolis Colts on Monday Night football. The Ravens come into this one on a three-game winning streak, while the Colts stopped their three-game losing streak with a win over the Dolphins last week. We’ll take a look at the weather for this game below.

Weather needs to be extreme to truly impact games, but when deciding between two players who you like equally, it might be a helpful tie breaker. What we really don’t want to see is 20 mph or higher wind speeds. Rain can cause problems, but unless it is a combination of high winds and rain, we usually don’t want to downgrade our fantasy football players too much.

Helpful weather resources include National Weather Service and Dark Sky, among others.
