Like snow? Sunday's Colts-Bills game will be right up your alley.

The forecast for Orchard Park, N.Y. calls for a 'near 100 percent' chance of snow and northwest winds of 20-30 mph. Three-to-six inches of snow could fall Sunday.

Not surprisingly, the Over-Under is hovering in the 31½-to-33 range at last check. The Colts are very likely to rest a lot of starters, and the Bills, who are eight-point favorites, don't have a strong offense.

You'll also want to keep an eye on the weather in Cleveland, where the Jaguars and Browns will meet. Like Buffalo, there's a virtual certainty of snow with winds in the 15-20 mph range. One-to-three inches of snow are in the forecast. The Browns are favored by 1-2 points, and the Over-Under ranges from 35-to-36.

Wind could be a major factor in the Bengals-Jets game, with 15-20 mph Northwest winds gusting to 35 mph at time. There is also a 40 percent chance of snow. Per, the winds in East Rutherford, New Jersey will be even stronger during the day — up to 50 mph. Both teams might be thankful the game was moved to Sunday night.
