Bad Weather Does Not Mean Bad Games

The Saints don't like it. My Colts probably don't prefer it either. The Packers and Bills invite it. Tampa Bay, Jacksonville, and Miami never really see it.

Normally there aren't that many NFL games played in the snow during the regular season, but already this year we have had "The Blowout" in the snow, where the Patriots seemed like the Patriots of old and crushed the then once horrible Tennessee Titans, 59-0. While this game was clearly one-sided, the game was quite entertaining to watch, especially during the first half.

Most passing teams don't like to play in the snow because of the cold it brings, and the slippery hands the receivers have to deal with. Teams like Chicago, Pittsburgh, and Denver are all teams that prefer the classic pound the football game plan and they enjoy playing in the snow, in part because they feel they have an advantage over their opponents.

While some teams might not like the weather conditions, and while some of the fans would prefer watching the game in their nice warm homes on their big screen HDTVs, the games are still entertaining, and even more so in my opinion.

There really aren't many stadiums left in the NFL where these type of games can take place, which makes snow games even more entertaining. When players must deal with the unique conditions on the field, it creates blooper reel after blooper reel. There are also more great plays made on the field, which, in my opinion, makes the game even better.

With the blizzard-like conditions in Philadelphia and Baltimore this weekend, the games that are going to be played will be even more interesting than what they were before.

I can't wait to watch.
