Sunday Night Football - TALK TO ME!

Who benefits most from a few inches of snow? It has me all mixed up on a possible shed bet. My sheds are made in Texas and they do not withstand the snow well.

What do you guys think. What we know.

Detroit has horrible secondary.
Pack can really throw.
Pack has bad OL
Detroit has a decent blitz with Suh and Fairley.
Pack has no running game.
Detroit has fair running game.
Detroit has one Wide Reciever, he is MEGATRON though.
Pack has a couple very solid WR's.

So Texans and Bears is the only weather affected game I have seen this year. Lots of rain, lots of turnovers in 1st half, no good pass rushes from either team because of the rain. The Texans could not get close to Cutler that game. It was 100% the rain.

If this snow slows down Detroits only solid advantage, which is their pass rush, then Packers dominate. I am not sure if snow is similiar to rain on the football field. Is Lambeau a similar field to Solider? I say yes but what do I know. It will not be windy so will the Pack still be able to throw as usual?

Yep, I like what your saying. I just worry about that 6.5 line. I feel like vegas got it right on the money here. Detroit has a good enough DL and that Megatron guy that they may slip in the backdoor to cover. For me, with the weather added, I cannot go Pack tonight.

Bad weather always benefits the offense. Defense can't stop and adjust or change directions as fast a the ball carrier. I'd have to go with the non-dome team here and say GB uses there short passes as there run game and takes this one tonight.

Good stuff.

Living in Houston, with all these dome stadiums, I have not seen a ton of wet games over the years.
