Projected weather for Chargers vs. Jaguars matchup on January 14

Forecast

The weather in Jacksonville Saturday night is supposed to be decent. At game time, it will be low 40’s-high 30’s. So it will be a cold one, especially for a Florida team. But there is no precipitation expected.

Fantasy/betting implications

Aside from the coldness, the weather shouldn't have a huge impact on this game. With no precipitation, both teams shouldn’t be held back whatsoever.
