Snow is making NFL Week 14 extremely awesome/difficult

The weather outside is FOOTBALL

We love snow football. We think all football games should be played in some sort of cold precipitation, because it reminds us of one time of the year schoolyard touch football games turned into tackle football games with no major injuries. (Also, grit and miserable fans.)

However, there is altogether too much snow in Eagles-Lions, which is apparently being played in 20,000 B.C.

To play football, the ball needs to travel through the air. That requires the air not having things in it. Also, sometimes the ball bounces. That requires the ground not being covered in powdery stuff.

The parts of the field that people ran on got cleared off. The end zone, not so much:

Other games were also snowy, but not as snowy:

It made it easy to see how bad the Redskins were at offense:

ASA JACKSON DON'T CARE

Watching NFL RedZone was like having your TV flash between hi-def and standard, as the scene shifted from blizzards to normal, sunny days in Tampa Bay and whatnot.

The best images of the day, though:
