ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Welcome to Ralph Wilson Stadium, where the Patriots visit the Bills today in their regular-season finale (1 p.m.).
It is extremely windy here, with gusts of nearly 40 miles per hour at this time. The goal posts in the stadium are both tilted to their side at this time, and a bit earlier, the white benches that players sit on were lifted off the ground.
Assuming these conditions don't change, this is going to make it a challenge for both teams to throw the football today. The kickers and punters will also face a significant challenge.
The temperature is in the low 40s, which is mild for Western New York at this time of year, but the wind gusts make it feel a bit colder. There is a light rain at this time.
Gene Steratore is assigned to referee today's game between the NFL's least penalized team (Patriots, 55 accepted penaties) and the NFL's second least penalized team (Bills, 68 accepted penalties, tied).
More to come throughout the day.
