M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland will be the site for Saturday's NFL Divisional Round Game between the Baltimore Ravens and Tennessee Titans. Baltimore can occasionally experience some brutal winters, but Saturday's forecast doesn't appear to be too bad.

While it doesn't seem like it's going to snow on Saturday, the latest forecast does call for some possible rain, which could impact the game flow. 15-25 MPH winds are also expected.

Normally, rainy conditions can have a serious effect on a team's approach on offense, but based on the way that the Ravens and Titans are built, there may not be too much of a deviation from the normal game plan on either side.

With presumptive NFL MVP Lamar Jackson, Mark Ingram, and Gus Edwards carrying the load this year, Baltimore features the league's most prolific rushing-attack, averaging 206.0 yards rushing per contest.

The Titans, meanwhile, feature the NFL's third-most productive rushing attack on a per game basis, and the league's leading rusher, Derrick Henry.

If the forecast holds true, the rain could certainly cause both teams to emphasize the rushing attack, even more so than usual.

Bettors and fantasy players would both be wise to keep an eye on the weather report as the day progresses.
