Jets vs. Bills: Weather Report

It has all come down to this… it’s the final game of the year. (Cue the cheers)

Now if you’re heading up to Ralph Wilson Stadium (if you can dig out), here’s what you’re going to be facing as far as the weather is concerned for Sunday.

According to the National Weather Service, the weather for Sunday in Orchard Park will be A chance of snow showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 26. Chance of precipitation is 40%. And if it’s near 50 percent, then you know that for that neck of the state, it will be a near certainty. (I went to college an hour outside of Buffalo so I understand more than most).

So now the question is, who does the weather favor?

I know that every time the weather is clear I say that the weather isn’t a factor and to be perfectly honest, the weather shouldn’t be a factor here either because these are two north east teams playing in the aftermath of a snow storm. However, snow storms down here and snow storms up in the Buffalo area are two completely different animals. So if it gets bad Saturday, then I’d say advantage Buffalo due to the fact that they are used to playing in multiple feet of snow.

But… if we can all rewind our brains back to 2009 season and the playoff game against the Bengals in Cincinnati; that game was being played with snow falling. And there are bunch of those guys still on this team.

What this signals though is that the Jets need to really rely on Shonn Greene, Bilal Powell, and Joe McKnight in the ground game because this game SCREAMS for ground and pound. And a good run game is a best friend to a young quarterback in Greg McElroy.

But if you’re the Bills, you remember the trouncing that the Jets put on you back on Week 1. And it was a trouncing. Just saying.
