Breaking down the Sunday NFL weather forecast for Week 15, what it means for fantasy football, betting

The weather report can impact fantasy football and betting. We break down the important information you need to prepare for Week 15.

The cold didn’t bother these Packers fans as much as the poor plays during the game between the Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings on Monday, Nov. 21, 2005 at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI.

We’ve got some cold temperatures hitting the U.S.A. this weekend and they’ll be felt in about every game, but Green Bay and Chicago are going to give you the chills even if you’re just sitting in front of the TV.

In the Week 15 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

Philadelphia Eagles at Chicago Bears

This game is going to be cold. Temperatures will be in the 20s and winds will be 10-15 mph, so wind chills are going to be in the teens. With no snow forecasted, the cold is really the only thing that will impact the game.

New York Giants at Washington Commanders (SNF)

The high for the day is supposed to get to 40 in Maryland, but temperatures will be falling below freezing for this primetime game. Winds will be around 10-15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph. It’s going to be chilly, but overall I’m not downgrading the offenses much.

Los Angeles Rams at Green Bay Packers (MNF)

It’s going to be extremely cold in Green Bay on Monday night, with temperatures in the teens. Winds aren’t supposed to be bad, but any breeze is going to feel like knives in that cold. Green Bay does have a heated playing surface, but this kind of cold is more difficult to play in than if it were 70 degrees.

Better weather games

Dallas Cowboys at Jacksonville Jaguars

Temperatures in the high 50s, wind around 10 mph and no rain make this a great environment for some football.

Detroit Lions at New York Jets

MetLife Stadium will be cold, but overall not bad. Temperatures will be in the high 30s, with wind around 10 mph and no precipitation for the return of Zach Wilson.

Kansas City Chiefs at Houston Texans

Temperatures in the mid-50s, no precipitation and winds around 10 mph should make for a pleasant day of footballing.

Pittsburgh Steelers at Carolina Panthers

Sunny skies, light winds and temperatures in the mid-40s are about as good as it gets.

Arizona Cardinals at Denver Broncos

Could just copy and paste the Steelers-Panthers game here, so I will — Sunny skies, light winds and temperatures in the mid-40s are about as good as it gets.

Cincinnati Bengals at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Probably one of the warmest game of the slate, with Tampa getting into the 60s, with no rain and winds 5-10 mph. Another nice spot for some football.

Tennessee Titans at Los Angeles Chargers

Los Angeles will also get into the 60s, with no rain and winds 5-10 mph.
