The Buffalo Bills not only have a chance to make a statement Sunday night, but they can also put even more ground between themselves and the Kansas City Chiefs when it comes to the AFC playoff picture.

I know. It’s only Week 5, but barring major injuries the Bills and Chiefs are still considered favorites to represent the AFC in Super Bowl 56.

With a win on Sunday Night Football, Buffalo can improve to 4-1 on the season and push Kansas City below the .500-mark and down to 2-3.

As the Bills will see, Arrowhead Stadium is a very tough place to play for visiting teams, but it’s even more difficult when the season is on the line in January. So forcing opponents to come through Buffalo in the playoffs would be a huge advantage for the Bills.

The effect on the AFC playoff picture is certainly an interesting storyline for Bills vs. Chiefs on Sunday Night Football, and another talking point will be the Kansas City weather at Arrowhead.

Let’s take a detailed look at the Bills vs. Chiefs NFL weather forecast, which includes wet and windy conditions.

Bills vs. Chiefs NFL Weather Forecast

According to the National Weather Service, it’s going to be very wet at Arrowhead Stadium.

Currently, there’s a 100% chance of rain in Kansas City, with rainfall potentially totaling between three-quarters to a full inch.

That’s a lot.

And while the projected 7-10 mph winds aren’t overly concerning, any uptick could prove troublesome for both offense.

Thanks to our Bet Labs software, we know that when average winds reach at least 10 mph, scoring is negatively impacted.

Again, average breezes aren’t expected to reach double digits at this point in the day, but be sure to check back often for the latest Bills vs. Chiefs weather forecast ahead of Sunday Night Football.
