Lambeau in the snow might be a disadvantage to the Packers this season.
The Packers have home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. Teams in bad weather cities should have a pretty good running game, but the Packers have a mediocre running attack at best. If they play any games in the snow at Lambeau, they might have some trouble moving the ball.
They are one of the best passing teams in the league, but with snow falling, will the receivers be able to run the routes as well? And will Rodgers be able to execute as precisely?
The same can be said for the opposing quarterbacks, however, and the Packers have one of the best in the league. Perhaps they still get the advantage in the passing game in the snow.
But what about the running game, which is more heavily relied upon in bad weather?
Statistically, they average only 97 yards per game, ranking 27th in the NFL.
These numbers should be higher considering they have the best scoring offense in the league, posting an average of 35 points per game. In addition, Green Bay has the third best overall yardage totals in the league.
With all of the points being scored, the running game should play a bigger role on the offense than the passing offense does. They finished the regular season 15-1 though, so it doesn't matter right?
One of the worst rushing teams in terms of yards per game should have higher totals because they are winning almost every game. When they are up big, the Packers should be able to feel comfortable running out the clock with their running backs.
But they don't.
The Packers have also been nursing James Starks' ankle injury, which means Ryan Grant will be getting much of the work this postseason. So far, he has been the backup when Starks is healthy.
If there is snow in the forecast, the Packers offense might freeze up.
