The Buffalo Bills are no strangers to playing in the elements, and through pure proximity of where they play, they may very well be the most equipped team to overcome any weather thrown their way. The Bills head to FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland, to take on a cross-conference foe, the Washington Commanders, who are one of the pleasant surprises of the NFL thus far.
The weather, due to Tropical Storm “Ophelia” looks to have a potential impact on today’s Week 3 matchup. Weather can force game-plan adjustments. It can even the playing field forcing teams to change their attack plan and make things much harder for both teams on the field. That’s what looks like may be in play in this matchup.
Weather Report for Bills vs. Commanders Kickoff
Weather changes quickly, and with it creeping up the East Coast in Week 3 in the NFL, this matchup may be impacted.
At this time, the weather calls for cloudy skies and a slight chance of a rain shower with a high of 67 degrees. Winds are projected to be light and variable at this time, but the weather has a chance to shift and become a real factor.
Bills vs. Commanders Preview
The surprising 2-0 Commanders will host a talented but underachieving 1-1 Bills team on Sunday. A Washington win could go a long way to legitimizing their start to the year.
Josh Allen has been careless with the football at the start of the season, and as a result, the Bills have underachieved through their first two games. On the other sideline, Commanders quarterback Sam Howell has shown some real promise en route to their first two wins of the season.

Despite the early-season transgressions, Buffalo is still widely viewed as one of the best teams in the NFL, but a loss today would damage that perception. Meanwhile, the Commanders could further cement their place within the NFC playoff race.
The weather may not end up being a huge problem in this one, but it is, in fact, unpredictable. And in this important Week 3 matchup, there are two teams looking to make statements and answer questions, regardless if the rain comes or not.
