The Buffalo Bills are about to play the New England Patriots at Highmark Stadium for what will be the first Monday Night Football game in Orchard Park since 2018. The Bills haven't won a Monday Night Football game since 1994.

The storylines of Josh Allen and Patriots rookie quarterback Mac Jones playing one another write themselves, but the weather is absolutely the number one talking point heading into tonight's game.

The weather for kickoff calls for 25-35 mph wind with 40-45 mph gusts and chance of snow showers, which should make the offensive game plans a challenge for each side,

The high winds were evident walking into Highmark Stadium. It even caused a problem for the ESPN pregame crew. The cast consisting of Suzy Kolber, Adam Schefter, Alex Smith and Randy Moss were in the middle of a segment, when a gust of win blew them over.

Those chairs are fairly high up, so it's not surprising. It's that windy.

Walking into the stadium was a challenge. The wind was hard to walk through and was even worse in the concourse, as you got into the stadium itself.

The Bills will be without cornerback Tre'Davious White, guard Jon Feliciano and linebacker A.J. Klein.

Klein was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list just three hours before the game.

The Bills take sole possession of the AFC East with a win, but fall a game and a half back with a loss to New England.
