Weather for Bengals vs. Bills in Divisional round

Forecast

There is some precipitation expected in Buffalo for this one. They are expecting 1-3 inches of snow which should surely have an impact on this game. The Bengals haven’t played in the snow yet this season, while this has been a regular situation for the Bills.

Fantasy/betting implications

Do not expect the passing games to be great. I would think the Bills will be throwing the ball because this is nothing new to them, but it will still be tough playing through the snow. Both teams have good run defenses, so it will be interesting to see how this one plays out.
