Chargers at Broncos: Wind could become factor


The Denver Broncos are playing host to the San Diego Chargers on Sunday evening in the divisional round of the NFL Playoffs and it appears that wind could be a factor. While there is no precipitation to wreak havoc on the offenses, the winds are making their impact felt.

Winds at Sports Authority Field at Mile High are currently around 23 mph, but they could drop to around 18 mph by the time the game is winding down.

All you need to do to see the impact the wind is having on the game is take a look at the CBS broadcast, where flags are blowing all over the place and even Phil Simms hair is getting a readjustment up in the booth.

We will just have to see whether or not Philip Rivers and Peyton Manning have enough arm strength to cut through the strong winds and complete the ball down field.
