Wet weather expected for NFL Week 14

Mother Nature sure has impeccable timing. In a week in which 14 of the 16 NFL games are being played at outdoor venues, most of those contests are expected to get hit by inclement weather.

Low pressures systems litter the country in Week 14 with rain in the extended forecast for games at Buffalo, Carolina, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Jacksonville, Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay, Washington, New York, Seattle, and the Monday Night Football game in Foxborough.

Week 14 may also bring the NFL’s first taste of snow this season. The forecast in Green Bay is calling for a 43 percent chance of the white stuff, just in time for the Packers to welcome dome-dwelling Detroit to the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field.

Totals for some of those outdoor games expecting poor conditions are on the move. The 47.5-point number for Atlanta-Carolina has fallen to 47, St. Louis-Buffalo has gone from 42 to 41.5, Kansas City-Cleveland has moved from 38 to 37.5, New York-Jacksonville is down from 39 to 38.5, Arizona-Seattle has gone from 35 to 34.5, Detroit-Green Bay has adjusted from 53 to 51, and Houston-New England is sitting at 51.5 after opening as high as 52.5.

The two outdoor events not expected to get wet this week are in California. Cloudy skies are in the forecast for Thursday Night Football in Oakland and the sun will be shining in the Bay Area, where San Francisco hosts Miami Sunday. The only games being played inside in Week 14 are at Indianapolis and Minnesota.

Make sure to check out the updated forecasts as Sunday’s action draws near.

bad weather effects the defence 98% of the time. the route runner knows the route. the defensive guy doesn't.

We could have a lot of Under possibilities on these primary passing teams where the game are being held in an uncovered staying. Also, the Texans weakness is their defensive secondary. If the pass game is limited due to weather, Houston M/L may be worth a second look

Wet or snowy weather isn't too bad in affecting offense. Also if both teams practice in similar conditions, weather may not be much of a factor. But strong wind can disrupt passing and kicking accuracy.

I like the Over in Oakland on TNF... Palmer will be chucking the ball all night long for completions... might not be to his guys but someone will be catching all his passes.
