The NFL Week 14 weather forecast has some worrying points, and with fantasy playoffs underway, fantasy football owners cannot afford to make home decisions, sit down due to the weather. The Ravens-Bills and Giants-Eagles are the most worrisome places due to the potentially cold, windy and rainy conditions, but they will be bad enough for you to feel like normally reliable players.
Before breaking down the Week 14 forecast, here is a reminder that if you have any questions about the sports climate or how the weather could affect the game (and, potentially, your fantasy, DFS and game decisions), feel free to communicate with Twitter @KevinRothWx or check our hourly NFL weather forecasts at RotoGrinders.

NFL Week 14 weather updates
Ravens @ Bills. This seems to be the windiest game of the week, and probably the biggest climatic concern. Temperatures will be around 40 degrees, but a sustained wind of 15-20 mph with gusts of more than 30 mph will push "similar,quot; temperatures closer to 30 degrees. Wind really is the main concern and could be a problem for kicks and longer throws. Still, we are talking about a pair of athletic quarterbacks, mobile and strong arms, so even with an expected decrease of eight percent in passes and scores, I would not call it a "stay away,quot; game (courtesy statistics from WeatherEdge)
Bengals @ Browns. This will be another windy game, but maybe just a little less windy than in Buffalo. I would expect sustained winds around 15 mph with gusts of around 25 mph. That will have a slight impact when passing / kicking.
Redskins @ Packers. It's going to be cold, but not too cold or unusual by Green Bay standards. There is also the possibility of rain / drizzle and some occasionally gusty winds. None of the individual factors is enough to recommend the fading of this game. It's not perfect, but it's not bad enough to worry.
Giants @ Eagles. There is nothing like watching two bad teams play in bad weather on Monday Night Football. We are still a few days here (and I recommend checking Twitter before the start) @KevinRothWx), but this game presents the best chance to see heavy rains this week. If that is the case, it is a pothole to pass elements and a small pothole to RB.
