The Colts play outside in Philadelphia on Sunday. What will the weather be like and how will that effect the game?
Last week the Colts played in Washington. In that game they avoided the remnants of Hurricane Florence despite the fact that the forecast had it raining all game. The forecast is always subject to change, which would be a good thing for Colts fans.
As of right now, there is a 70% chance of rain in Philadelphia. That means that the game will be played more on the ground. With both starting running backs out, it will be interesting to see how well the ball is run. The Eagles are down to their third string running back in Corey Clement, and he is even questionable for the game.
The Colts haven’t had to play in bad weather yet this year, but they played in the worst weather of any game last season in Buffalo. They played in a driving snowstorm and actually had a chance to win that game. But they couldn’t and lost in overtime. But the Colts do have experience playing in poor weather.
If the weather conditions hold, it could benefit the Colts. Jordan Wilkins has looked good in his action so far this year. If he can continue the roll that he has been on, the Colts might be able to come away with a victory. He should be able to run through some holes.
The weather just reinforces the fact that this will be a low scoring game. It would be surprising if both teams scored over 20 points.
