Projected weather for Ravens vs. Bengals matchup on Sunday


It shouldn’t be unbearable, especially for these northern teams. The forecast calls for a mild night with very light winds, between 3 and 5 MPH, and effectively no chance of precipitation. The temperatures will rest in the low 30s that evening.

Fantasy/betting implications

This is a matchup between two cold-weather teams playing on a mild winter night, so the weather shouldn’t have any impact on fantasy or betting.
