Mother Nature seems to be enjoying attending Patriots-Bills games this season. With the Super Wild Card Weekend playoffs, these two AFC East rivals are set to face off for the third time this year when New England travel to Buffalo to face the Bills on Saturday night.

If you remember, the weather was a big factor in the first clash between these two teams at Highmark Stadium and it looks like these clubs could play in the elements again. CBS Boston forecasts temperatures be single digit with less than zero wind chill for this game. Weather.com also adds that there will be 10 mph winds on Saturday night.

Of course, it’s not as bad as it was in week 13 when there were 40mph winds. In that game, the Patriots attempted just three assists in the 14-10 final victory where they chose to throw the ball 46 times for 222 yards. Under more normal conditions at Foxborough for their Week 16 game, the Bills defeated the Patriots 33-21.

With that in mind, the weather becoming a factor in this regard could be more beneficial for the Patriots, who are 4.5-point underdogs heading into this playoff game. If wind, precipitation, or just cold weather can limit Josh Allen’s ability to pitch football, it should keep New England within striking distance, while playing in his football preference.
