Today’s game is being played in Seattle, in November. In other words, it is going to rain.
The forecast calls for temperatures in the mid to high 40’s with rain likely. Winds should not be a factor as the gusts are expected to stay under 10 mph.
Rain is by no means a good thing when it comes to the Buccaneers winning this game. However, nor is playing the Seahawks in Seattle. Expect to see Marshawn Lynch pound away at the Bucs front and Russell Wilson to run the read option as well.
As far as the Buccaneers go, defensively they will have their hands full with Lynch, but the offense is where the weather could affect them. The Buccaneers were going to have to rely on the run because of Seattle’s stout pass defense, rain would cause even more of that. I expect the Seahawks to stack the box and force Glennon to beat them.
Crazy weather sometimes causes crazy outcomes, but when it comes to Seattle, rain is not crazy.
