The No. 6 Los Angeles Rams take on the No. 3 Detroit Lions in the Wild Card round on Sunday, January 14. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET from Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan. Ford Field is an enclosed stadium, so the weather does not impact the on-field product. However, if you’re tailgating, it’s worth knowing what the weather will look like.

Weather for Rams vs. Lions in Wild Card round

Forecast

Detroit, like much of the Midwest, is getting hit by freezing temperatures this week, but those won’t affect this Wild Card game. Ford Field is an enclosed stadium, so Lions and Rams fans will enjoy the indoors in this matchup while their counterparts in Buffalo and Kansas City shiver in the frosty air.

For those traveling to the game, the low on Sunday evening is expected to be 2°F with winds around 15 MPH.

Fantasy/betting implications

Because Ford Field is a domed stadium, the forecast will not affect fantasy or betting outcomes of the matchup.
