The Buffalo Bills are playing a huge game on the road against the Kansas City Chiefs this afternoon - one with massive AFC playoff implications for both teams. There will be a third opponent on the field today, as well: cold, rainy weather.
It's gross at Arrowhead Stadium today, and it's probably going to stay that way. Not only will rain persist throughout the contest, but temperatures are not expected to exceed the mid-30s, as well. Winds, however, should be fairly mild, so throwing the ball effectively should not be completely out of the question for Tyrod Taylor and Alex Smith.

It is absolutely pouring now here at Arrowhead. Reminds me a lot of Week 17 vs. New England at Foxboro in 2013. Just miserable conditions.— Joe Buscaglia (@JoeBuscaglia) November 29, 2015
Sloppy conditions would seem to play into Buffalo's hands - they're built to run and play good defense, a style that fits perfectly with inclement weather - but this year's Chiefs team is built similarly. Prepare yourselves, Bills fans, for a good, old-fashioned slugfest today in Missouri.
