Green Bay Weather Forecast Could Significantly Impact Jaguars vs Packers Matchup
We're officially more than halfway through the 2020 NFL season and weather is starting to become much more of a factor. Conditions are threatening to shake up plenty of big matchups this week, including the battle between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Green Bay Packers.
With the chance for both rain and snow, it could be a lot more difficult to throw the ball than usual.
It's likely to rain early in the game, though there's also an outside chance for some snow as the matchup progresses. Complicating matters even further, it's also shaping up to be a windy day, with the potential for speeds as high as 48 miles per hour.
Conditions like that often impact the deep passing game, something that both Aaron Rodgers and Jake Luton (albeit in his first and only NFL start) have relied on quite frequently. Rodgers boasts an average depth of target (aDOT) of 8.2, putting him in the top half of the league, while Luton's 8.5 aDOT would rank T-No. 9 in the league had he played enough to qualify.
Winds like this also have serious potential to muck up the kicking game, making things much tougher on Mason Crosby.
Still, FanDuel Sportsbook's Week 10 NFL odds have Green Bay as hefty 14-point favorites, so the oddsmakers don't think the conditions will make life that tough for the Packers.
