Week 5 of the NFL season is underway. Outside of a handful of games, the weather hasn’t played a major factor this season. When we look at projected weather reports, we obviously are concerned about precipitation, but wind speeds are also something to look at as they can affect both ball flight and potential game-winning kicks. With that in mind, here is an overview of the Week 5 slate and the various weather expectations.

Worst weather games

Baltimore Ravens vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

The high for the day is 57, with a 40% chance of afternoon showers. It isn’t expected to rain a lot, but with the chance increasing through the game, it could play a role late. The wind is also expected to sit at 13 mph, with stronger gusts.

New York Giants vs. Miami Dolphins

The high looks great at 88 degrees, but it’s storm season down in Florida. There is a 96% chance of rain, with a heavy thunderstorm expected in the afternoon. They may be able to get the game in, but rain could certainly impact the end.

Better weather games

New Orleans Saints vs. New England Patriots

The high for the day is 65, with a low of 42. There is only a 4% chance of rain, but the wind could play a factor at 14 mph.

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Los Angeles Rams
