When you come to Buffalo in December, getting smacked in the face by winter is always a possibility. 

Hours before Monday night’s game between the Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots, those at the stadium were posting pictures and videos of the weather. It wasn’t pleasant. 

There was a lot of wind, blowing snow and cold. The offensive players — particularly Patriots rookie quarterback Mac Jones, who was born and raised in Jacksonville — had to cringe. 

The alert sent by NFL Football Operations a few hours before kickoff made it sound like a miserable night was ahead in the stadium: 

  • Pregame: Cloudy. Very windy, with wind gusts to 50-55 mph. 40% chance of snow showers. Snow accumulation of a dusting to 1/2” possible. Temperatures in the mid to lower 30s.

  • Game: Cloudy. Very windy, with wind gusts to 45-50 mph early, decreasing to 40-45 mph after 10pm. 40% chance of snow showers. Snow accumulation of 1/2-1” possible. Temperatures in the lower 30s to upper 20s.

  • Postgame: Mostly cloudy. Windy, with wind gusts to 35-40 mph. 30% chance of snow showers. Snow accumulation of a dusting to 1/2″ possible. Temperatures in the upper 20s.

Heading into Monday night, there hadn’t been too many bad weather games in the NFL this season. It made sense that Buffalo got one.
