Pittsburgh Weather NFL Games
December 12, 2010 by staff
Pittsburgh Weather, Weather should play a huge factor in today’s NFL games, keeping scores low and leading to more turnovers
Giants-Vikings game has been postponed due to a blizzard. Outdoor sites in Chicago (3 inches of snow, 50-mph winds), Pittsburgh (snow and wind) and Buffalo (rain and wind) can expect difficult conditions as well.
A snowstorm in the Midwest on Saturday has already had an impact on the timetable for the NFL. New York Giants and the Minnesota game, originally scheduled for noon local time in Minneapolis, has been postponed to Monday night kick off at 8 pm Eastern time. [UPDATE: Rich Eisen just said play will not be played on Monday or Tuesday at the Metrodome because of the condition of the roof]
The Giants’ plane was diverted to Kansas City because of the snowstorm in Minneapolis yesterday, and the team spent the night in KC. The game will be shown in both local markets on FOX, and according to Greg Aiello, who will be available for Sunday Ticket as well.
This morning, the show NFL Network Gameday Morning said the Metrodome roof has “reduced” (deflated it now looks like a flat roof) under the weight of 15 centimeters of snow and high (> 30 wind km / h). This could be an ongoing story, and the current report on the NFL Network is that the game can be played as scheduled at the Metrodome on Monday.
The other match will be greatly affected by weather in Chicago, with the clash between the Patriots 10-2 and the Bears 9-3. It will be snowing all day, with 3-5 inches expected. Winds will be looking at around noon local time, and should be shouting from the kick off 15 hours (N to NW at 25-35 km / h gusting to 50 km / h). The temperature should be just below zero, but should feel much colder because of wind.
These winds will destroy the game going and kicking, especially if it turns into a kind of cross wind in the stadium. If you set a schedule for the fantasy playoffs, I think seriously from someone else if you have a reasonable alternative. This will be one of the windiest games late in the season at Soldier Field, I can find over the past 35 years. I found seven games since 1975, where the wind conditions were greater than 18 km / h on day 1 December / January game at Soldier Field: January 1989 vs. San Francisco vs. Los Angeles and 1986 in two NFC Championship Games and games against Green Bay in December (2007), Houston (2004), Tampa Bay (1991), and St. Louis (1975 and 1979).
Figures passed in those games: completion percentage of 48.4%, 5.8 yards per attempt, 12 TD and 14 INT’s. Average total points scored: 36. The over / under market has already made an enormous boost 5 points, from 43.5 to 38 currently.
Other games in the North should simply more normal late season weather effects.
Buffalo vs. Cleveland: near freezing temperatures, rainfall in the winter rain will mix during the game, and E winds around 10 mph.
Pittsburgh vs. Cincinnati: Temperatures will drop 40 degrees by mid-morning to frost, freezing rain in the morning and continuing to game time, ranging from the SSW winds at kickoff SES by the end of the game, and increase from 7 mph to 11 mph throughout the play.
Washington vs. Tampa Bay: the temperature near 50, rain throughout the game, with winds between 10-15 mph SSE.
New York Jets vs. Miami: high temperature at kickoff to near 53 degrees, the possibility of rain throughout the game, and difficult wind conditions improved slightly in the game (ESS 16 to 12 mph from kickoff at the end).
