The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind.
The weather in Buffalo could make for a wild contest between the Bills and Patriots on “Monday Night Football.”
With the Patriots at 8-4 and Bills at 7-4, the game has major ramifications not just for the AFC East crown, but potentially for the No. 1 seed and a first round bye in the conference.
The Monday night forecast calls for a low of 28 degrees Farenheit with a possible flurry and wind gusts of up to 48 mph.
John Ewing, a data analyst at BetMGM, tweeted that the forecast of wind speeds at 25 miles per hour pushed the over/under down four points — from 44.5 to 40.5.
“Been coming to Buffalo for 30 years. Never saw wind gusts like this,” tweeted Patriots radio color commentator Scott Zolak.
The wind is blowing so fast before the game that the goalposts are swaying.
Another video, tweeted by the Patriots flagship radio station, makes Highmark Stadium look like a scene out of “The Wizard of Oz.”
ESPN’s Adam Schefter, broadcasting from the field, looked like he was frigid.
“ESPN has removed the SkyCam for tonight’s game because of the wind,” tweeted Bills reporter Sal Capaccio. “Not sure if they plan on putting it back up, but I doubt it.”
Football gets a lot more fun after Thanksgiving, when the elements start to play a major factor. Buckle up for a crazy game in Buffalo.
