The NFL is heading into Week 15. While the beginning of the season has some concern for hurricanes, now we are firmly on the lookout for snow games. Weather forecasts can change, but even though this week looks to be avoiding the snow, there are several games that could be affected by high winds or rain. With that in mind, here is a breakdown of the projected weather forecasts for Week 15, courtesy of AccuWeather.

Worst weather games

New York Jets vs. Miami Dolphins

Update: Rain isn’t going to be a problem, but winds could still be gusty. This isn’t as bad as first thought, but deep passing and kicking could still be impacted.

There is a 78% chance of rain with 20 mph winds, which means gusts should be even higher. This is worth watching to see if the sustained winds and gusts remain high as we get closer to kickoff. The high for the day will be 80, with a low of 63.

Atlanta Falcons vs. Carolina Panthers

Update: This game is going to have a ton of rain and windy conditions. I’m downgrading the offenses here.

It’ll likely be a rainy game in Carolina, as there is a 91% chance of rain. The high is 54, with a low of 45. The wind could also be something to watch as it is expected to blow at 13 mph consistently.

Chicago Bears vs. Cleveland Browns

Update: Rain will move on throughout the game, but still wet and winds are going to be breezier than first thought, with sustained winds 15-20 mph and gusts a bit higher.

The high for the day is 51, with a low of 41. There is an 83% chance of rain with 12 mph winds.

Baltimore Ravens vs. Jacksonville Jaguars (SNF)

Update: Winds could be really tough to start this game. Timing is tough to predict, but this game is riskier for offense than earlier in the week.

This game may benefit from being at night, but it is expected to rain throughout the day. There is a 98% chance of rain, and it will get increasingly windy, projected at 17 mph. The high for the day is 66, with a low of 51.

Dallas Cowboys vs. Buffalo Bills

The high for the day is 48, with a low of 39. There is a 64% chance of rain, with an “occasional afternoon rain and drizzle” expected. The winds are expected to blow at 15 mph consistently.

Kansas City Chiefs vs. New England Patriots

Update: Looks like the rain will hold off.

There is a 66% chance of rain, and the weather description is “cloudy with a shower in the afternoon.” The high for the day is 48, with a low of 43 and six mph winds.

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Seattle Seahawks (MNF)

There is an 88% chance of rain with “a passing morning shower followed by periods of rain in the afternoon.” The wind will be blowing at seven mph, and the high for the day is 50.

Better weather games

Minnesota Vikings vs. Cincinnati Bengals (Saturday)

The high for the day is 53, with a low of 41. There is a 6% chance of rain on a “mostly cloudy” day. The wind shouldn’t be a factor, blowing consistently at six mph.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Green Bay Packers

The weather description for the day reads, “low clouds.” There is a 12% chance of rain with seven mph winds. The expected high is 40, with a low of 28.

Houston Texans vs. Tennessee Titans

There is a 25% chance of rain for the day, but the weather description is “cloudy to partly sunny.” The wind is expected to sit around seven mph.
