We’ve been getting pretty lucky with NFL weather the last few weeks and, crossing fingers, it looks like we’ll continue that streak.
We’ll go through the games that look to have the worst wind, cold and possible precipitation and also give you the games where we shouldn’t need to worry about weather, i.e., the games you can choose from in DFS without getting an ulcer. Helpful weather resources include National Weather Service and Dark Sky, among others.
Check back before kickoff for updates on these weather situations.
Worst weather games
At this point there aren’t any true weather concerns. That could change, but for now we are all systems go.
Better weather games
Denver will be in the low 40s with temperatures dropping throughout the game. Clear skies and 5 mph wind makes for a good forecast for Josh Allen to let it rip.
Mid to late December in Green Bay will bring us cold, but nothing out of the norm, as temperatures will hover just below freezing with no precipitation and little wind. Let the Aaron Rodgers MVP hunt continue in earnest.
Low 50s with clear skies and variable wind might make getting run over by Derrick Henry slightly more comfortable, if that’s possible.
The Ravens get a cake walk matchup at home against the Jaguars and they’ll get some nice weather for their stroll, with temperatures in the mid-40s, no wind and no precipitation.
The Patriots will get a taste of that Florida winter that Tom Brady keeps haring on about. High 70s, no wind, sunny skies, beach weather.
The nation’s capital will be cloudy, but with little wind and mid 40s as Russ’ cooking show comes to town.
This is L.A. ad Sheryl Crow would say in a song that you probably haven’t heard and that means good weather. Temperatures in the mid-70s, no rain and 5 mph wind. Jared Goff hets a perfect set up for good fantasy points.
Glendale isn’t just for 365 days of the year golfing, you can play football there too! And Jalen Hurts will come to town to take on Kyler Murray in great weather as usual. High 60s, sunny skies and no wind to speak of.
Cloudy skies, temps in the mid-30s and variable winds should work fine for this matchup. It’s no Arizona, but hey, it could be a lot worse.
If I were going to put any game in the “worst” section, it would be this one, but that would be a stretch. Temperatures will be in the low 40s, no rain and winds around 10 mph. Those winds could pick up as we get closer to game time, but for now, clear sailing.
