We had a snow game last week, but finally it didn't have a big effect on the passing or kicking games in that contest. Looking towards the weather forecast for Week 16, we shouldn't have to worry about snow, but there is some wind, rain and cold that could have a slight effect on the start, sit down and ask for the fantasy football championship round . .

NFL Week 16 weather updates

SATURDAY

Texans in Buccaneers. There is a chance of rain, and the winds will be around 10-15 mph. None of that is enough to be really worried.

Accounts to the patriots. The temperatures will be below zero, but there doesn't seem to be any impressive wind or precipitation, so the temperature doesn't bother me.

Rams to the 49ers. There is a good chance of rain here, but it is probably not strong enough to affect the decisions to start or sit down.

SUNDAY

Bengals in Dolphins. There will be rains all day, which means that there are many possibilities for this game to be played in the wet. It will also be a bit windy, I would expect sustained winds around 15 mph with gusts in the range of 25-30 mph. That could affect deep passes and kick games.

Cardinals in Seahawks. There is a lower probability of rainfall, but nothing important here …
