Chiefs-Patriots will be playoff weather with rain, maybe now

There is a 100 percent chance of rain when the Kansas City Chiefs visit the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium this weekend. The Weather Channel's forecast says temps will be in the low 40s which means we could be avoiding snow. Other forecasts are still saying there's a chance of snow.

Who has the advantage with the bad weather? Your first reaction is probably to say this will be low scoring. But the Patriots played the Titans in a snowstorm a few years ago and dropped 50-plus on them. The Chiefs put up 45 in light snow against Washington a couple years ago. If the game is low scoring, it's probably due more to the defenses than the weather.

The Chiefs often have the coaching advantage heading into games, which is important when conditions are not normal (like a snow game or playing on a short week). I'm not sure that they do this week. Bill Belichick's team will be ready for whatever the conditions are. I suspect the Chiefs will too but this won't necessarily be the advantage it often is.

Here is The Weather Channel forecast:
