In the Week 7 weather report we’ll go through the games that look to have the strongest projected wind gusts, possible precipitation and more. We’ll 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.

Worst weather games

Indianapolis Colts at San Francisco 49ers

There is a 99 percent chance of rain for the Sunday Night Football matchup between the Colts and 49ers. Temperatures will be in the high 50s with wind around 13 mph. We’ll want to check out the field for this game, but if it does rain steadily, gripping the ball could be troublesome.

New Orleans Saints at Seattle Seahawks

Seattle is leaning into their rainy period and this Monday night game has a 90 percent chance of rain. Temperatures will be in the low 50s and wind will be around 11 mph.

Atlanta Falcons at Miami Dolphins

We’ve got a 70 percent chance of rain in Miami, with temperatures in the mid 80s and wind around 11 mph. As long as it isn’t a steady rain, this game should be fine.

Better weather games

Kansas City Chiefs at Tennessee Titans

Nashville will be in the high 70s with sunny skies and wind around 12 mph. Patrick Mahomes shouldn’t have much trouble chucking some frozen ropes around.

New York Jets at New England Patriots

With highs in the mid 50s, this game will have a little chill in the air, but that’s great football weather when you consider wind will be under 10 mph and skies will be clear.

Cincinnati Bengals at Baltimore Ravens

Truly perfect weather in Baltimore with temperatures in the mid to upper 60s, skies clear and win around 5 mph.

Washington Football Team at Green Bay Packers

Green Bay should be nice for football, with highs around 50 degrees, slight chance for rain, but more likely clear skies and wind around 12 mph.

Chicago Bears at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa has some rain in the forecast, but at just a 40 percent chance with temperatures in the mid 80s and win around 8 mph. Overall I don’t expect the weather to be impactful here.

Detroit Lions at Los Angeles Rams

Sunny skies, 8 mph winds, and a nice high of 69 degrees make for great weather for Matthew Stafford and Jared Goff to take on their old teams.
