Chargers vs. Jets: Weather Report


Week 16 is upon us and now the dream of the playoffs over were eviscerated Monday so it’s time to play these next couple games with pride on the line. So, what’s the weather going to be Sunday, the day before Christmas Eve at Met Life Stadium?

The National Weather Service said that Sunday afternoon, when the Jets kick off at 1 p.m. it will be Mostly sunny, with a high near 42.

So, who does the weather favor?

I think I’m going to rehash a lot of what I said when San Fran came to town. The good weather makes everything equal but San Diego is flying across country to play the Jets at 1 p.m. rather than at night like the game was originally scheduled for. Usually, if you’re a West Coast team crossing the country to play an east coast team early, then normally the game favors the East Coast team.

But for the Jets, it’s a lot simpler than this. As I said, this is all about pride. They have a shot to finish the season back at .500 after everything they’ve been through. In order for them to do that, they need to come out  and play a complete team game and close the home portion of the schedule on a high note; not necessarily saying that they need to replicate the way the opened the season with the beat down of the Bills, but they need to play solid ball.

And let’s see what the young kids got, especially Greg McElroy. The biggest question of the next two games is, what’s the future for the Jets and McElroy can do a lot to make sure that he’s a part of it.
