Patriots vs. Bills NFL Weather Forecast

According to RotoGrinders Meteorologist Kevin Roth, snow shouldn’t be much of a factor, but bettors should be fully aware of the wind:

“I wouldn’t call this a snow game, with nothing more than a snow shower or flurry in game, but I would most definitely call it a bad weather game.

The winds are the biggest factor, with sustained winds at kickoff of 25 mph and gusts of 45 mph+. Those winds will be about 5-10 mph less by the end of the game, but still impactful.

Temperatures, while less of a factor than wind, will also contribute to the all-around ugliness of the weather. Temps will be a bit above freezing during the game, with a blustery ‘feels-like’ temp around 20 degrees.”

In fact, a video from earlier this afternoon shows just how strong the winds are blowing at New Era Stadium:
