NFL Playoffs: Snow expected for Chargers vs. Bengals


The San Diego Chargers have played relatively well in cold weather this season and given Sunday’s forecast in Cincinnati, we’ll see if it’s a trend they’ll be able to continue.

According to Weather.com, there is a 80-90 percent chance of precipitation which will include 4-8 inches of snow.

The AFC Wild Card playoff game between the Chargers and the Cincinnati Bengals is scheduled for a 1:05 ET kickoff and Weather.com currently (it’s understandably subject to change) projects rain in the forecast which will move into sleet and eventually snow as the game progresses, which will include a ‘Winter Storm Warning’.

In addition to the snow and rain, it’s also expected that winds will pick up and be in the 15-20 MPH range – not exactly the type of conditions Andy Dalton and Philip Rivers are looking for in regards to their passing attacks.

We’re still over twenty-four hours away from the scheduled kick and as well all know, weather reports can change quickly but it sounds as if Sunday afternoons game is shaping up to be a blustery contest.
