Projected weather for Giants vs. Vikings matchup on Sunday


The weather for this matchup appears to be mostly cloudy, with a high near 38. The indoor atmosphere should benefit the Vikings, as they soared to victory when they hosted New York in Week 16.

Fantasy/betting implications

There is nothing to worry about for purposes of this game. Maybe the Vikings flip the air conditioning on a little harder for kicks, but in reality, this will be a neutral experience for decision-making.
