Projected weather for Cowboys vs. Buccaneers matchup on January 16


Beautiful weather is expected for both of these teams on Monday night. The forecast is calling for mostly clear skies, with a low around 54. The Cowboys are used to playing indoors, so there will be very little change for them playing down South.

Fantasy/betting implications

The Bucs have a bit of an advantage playing on their home turf, despite finishing with an 8-9 record. They are currently 2.5-point underdogs, but Tom Brady with little to no wind blowing through the air should give Tampa Bay a solid chance to keep pace with the Cowboys offense.
