Very heavy rain is supposed to start around 3pm with up to an inch or two predicted by the end of the night...

This likely will help neutralize Brady's effectiveness but might also neutralize our strength as well, which is getting after the QB...

I would say this likely favors us, as the less talented teams usually gain an advantage when playing conditions are not ideal...

Any thoughts?

Any detriment to an aerial attack is in the Bills' favor.

The Pats use remote control footballs that Kraft controls from his suite.

Doesn't favor Brady - look what he did in the Cincy game that was played in same weather.

I'm surprised the Pats* haven't figured out how to acquire favors from the gods, not just the refs.

Where are you getting your weather forecast?  Weather.com doesn't mention rain until tomorrow afternoon and only a quarter inch total.  Also, isn't the field surface artificial (field turf)?

In a written article talking about the storm weather.com says the entire east coast is in for very heavy rain and 1-2 inches total...

Yes, day=before sunset, which means 1/4 inch in about 2 hours, followed by 1/2 inch at night, ending by 11pm, meaning the heaviest rain will be falling during the game most likely...

Plus its very hard to predict how much is going to fall in any given area, but its supposed to be heavy rain

Just trying to clarify a thread that seems misleading in it's title and OP.   Not that that's ever been done here.

Accuweather says .91 inches of rain in Foxboro tomorrow if anybody gives a ****. I just hope that dump in NE finds Tommy Boy on his ass a lot. The heck with draft position make a statement!

Sloppy tracks favor the offense. Particularly the run game.

Favors the Pats* Bad/wet weather usually means turnovers. The Bills have been the more turnover prone team by far. Add that to the inevitable homer calls and the Bills Foxborough nightmare continues...

Not much effect... the worst of the rain should be later at night and wind won't be a factor.
