The (3-11) Chicago Bears could usually point to the expected “Bear Weather” to give them an advantage, but the (11-3) Buffalo Bills will feel right at home in the frigid conditions later today at Soldier Field. The Bills have been one of the best teams in the NFL all season long, and they’re looking to keep pace for the AFC’s number-one seed, so some cold weather won’t stop them.
Chicago has been competitive in games where they have no business being competitive — thanks to Justin Fields — but with some more injuries that hit them this week, their luck may be running out.
Here’s everything you need to know about this week 16 matchup.
The Bears and Bills kickoff at Noon (CT) today from Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois, and it’s going to be cold! Weather.com is predicting “Variable cloudiness and windy. High 8F. Winds W at 20 to 30 mph. Winds could occasionally gust over 40 mph.”
Have a safe and merry Christmas!
