Fans of the Buffalo Bills and Baltimore Ravens were already expecting to see poor offense in Sunday’s season opener. A low-scoring game had been predicted days ago but seeing the weather forecast for game time makes a sloppy defensive struggle even more likely.
There is at least a 95% chance of rain during the entire time window starting at 1 PM Eastern on Sunday. Add to that some double-digit wind and you’re going to see some balls flutter out of quarterback hands.
It is especially notable for the Bills, who recently signed an undrafted rookie to be the team’s kicker and holder on field goal and extra point attempts. How much practice does Corey Bojorquez have catching the snap and placing in regular conditions, much less adverse ones?
Both teams feature what we think will be strong rushing attacks. Maybe the sloppy conditions will make for a mauling, run-dominated game. Adjust your fantasy lineups accordingly.
