Wind expected to be a factor in game

Posted by Chris Brown on November 17, 2013 – 9:20 am

With the weather forecast today calling for sustained winds of 25 miles per hour and wind gusts up to 45 mph, there’s little doubt that the wind is going to have an impact on today’s game between the Bills and the Jets.

Bills head coach Doug Marrone has a contingency plan prepared in the event that the wind wreaks havoc with the passing game.

“It could potentially adjust the plan,” Marrone told Buffalobills.com. “I think you have to be ready to go both ways depending on what the wind is doing when you play. We’ve practiced out in the stadium when the wind has been blowing recently. So we were able to at least see what we like and what we don’t like or what we throw well and not throw well. Our game at Pittsburgh was windy too, so that experience is valuable. You’ve just got to go out and play.”

Marrone’s chief concern however, is the kicking game when it comes to the wind.

“The thing I get most concerned about is Brian (Moorman), holding that ball (on his punt drops),” he said. “He cradles the ball and when you do that and the ball drops and the wind is going, for him to kick it, the tip of that ball starts to move. That’s the one concern I have.”
