One of Sunday’s more interesting NFL Week 1 matchups includes the Pittsburgh Steelers, who “struggled” to a 12-4 record last season, visiting the Buffalo Bills — a team that advanced to last season’s AFC Championship Game.
Buffalo is no stranger to poor football weather, but most people likely associate the Bills and playing in frigid, snowy, icy conditions later in the season, not early September.
And no, snow and ice aren’t forecasted for this contest, but the expected weather is still severe enough to have an major effect on the over/under game total.
Let’s take a look at the latest Steelers vs. Bills weather forecast in Buffalo, including how savvy bettors are already taking advantage.

According to the National Weather Service, the latest weather forecast is calling for breezy weather and 60% chance of rain.
Breezes of 16-21 mph are expected at New Era Stadium, with the chances of rain increasing as the day progresses.
Strong winds can affect the passing games of quarterbacks of all levels, nevermind an aging Ben Roethlisberger whose arm strength has been eroding in front of our eyes.
Kickers can also have trouble in gusty breezes, taking even more points off the board.
