Here we go, baby!
If you like your football with a blend of winter nastiness, this may be your weekend.
Take a look at the extended forecast for this week’s NFL action, and you’ll see “wintry mix,” “rain likely” and “chance of snow” mentioned more than a few times.
Here’s what we have, weather wise, for the outdoor games as of early Friday morning:
Colts at Bengals: High of 34/wintry mix
Bill at Buccaneers: High of 82/Patchy fog (The patchy fog is not referring to Greg Schiano’s cognitive ability to lead a pro football team.)
Chiefs at Redskins: High of 35/wintry mix (It’ll be cold at FedEx Field, but Mike Shanahan’s seat will be nice and warm? (That joke is so cliché. I can’t believe I wrote that.))
Vikings at Ravens: High of 35/wintry mix
Browns at Patriots: High of 35/Mostly sunny (Boring – just like the Patriots.)
Raiders at Jets: High of 36/slight chance of snow (and offense)
Lions at Eagles: High of 36/rain and/or snow likely
Dolphins at Steelers: High of 32/snow likely
Falcons at Packers: High of 19/snow likely (By the way, the low for Green Bay on Sunday is -2.)
Titans at Broncos: High of 16/chance of snow (Hey, have you heard? Peyton Manning is not so hot in the cold.)
Giants at Chargers: High of 56/mostly sunny (Of course, it’s San Diego)
Seahawks at 49ers: High of 47/Sunny
Monday night: Cowboys at Bears: Temperatures may dip to as low as 11 Monday night in Chicago under partly cloudy skies. I think we can refer to this as Bear weather.
