Giants vs. Bears Weather Report & Forecast: How Wind & Rain Might Impact Saquon Barkley & Khalil Herbert in New York

The New York Giants and Chicago Bears have struggled to score to start the 2022-23 NFL season, and weather in New York on Sunday won’t help.

Prior to the matchup of NFC foes, the rain expected in New York could mean that they’ll lean on their running backs even more.

According to AccuWeather, there is a 75% of rain during the game, with winds reaching up to 16 MPH, making for a chilly day at MetLife Stadium.

Given the threat of weather, the Giants and Bears should opt to lean on their running games even more than they already have in the early going of their season.

Given the rain and expected matchup featuring both running games, trends certainly point to the under.
