The Dallas Cowboys will face the New York Jets tonight in East Rutherford, NJ. Their playing in the MetLife Stadium, which is an open-air field. This mean weather plays a big factor in all their games.
But tonight, it seems Mother Nature will be quietly watching the game, just like the rest of America. Tonight’s forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with a slight 20% chance of rain. Those chances of precipitation go down as the night continues.
Wind should not be a factor as it’s currently blowing southeast at about 9mph. It’s forecast to be blowing SSW at around 7mph at game-time.
If it does rain, it obviously favors both teams’ strong ground games. But the wind should not be a factor in the passing game. All in all, it sounds like a wonderful night to start the season.
