Falcons Vs. Giants, 2012 NFL Playoffs Weather Update

While the temperature will be a few degrees colder than what the Falcons are used to in the Georgia Dome, the weather at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey doesn't figure to be a factor when the Atlanta Falcons and the New York Giants kick off at 1:00 p.m. in Sunday's Wild Card matchup.

The forecast indicates temperatures of around 45 degrees with partly cloudy skies on Sunday with only a 20 percent chance of precipitation. The wind is expected at around 11 MPH out of the northwest so when you factor in the wind chill temperatures should feel like around 40 degrees at kick off.

That is certainly not the weather friendly conditions that the Georgia Dome has to offer but it could be much worse for the Falcons.
