The weather forecast for the weekend anticipates a 20 percent chance of precipitation on Sunday. It is expected to be partly cloudy and between 29 and 34 degrees. The easy assumption to make is that the potentially adverse conditions would be likely to favor the Patriots, who are certainly used to all manner of weather.
According to Jamison Hensley at ESPN, the Ravens do not seem overly concerned about the weather on Sunday.
"We think we're an all-weather team," coach John Harbaugh said. "We think we're built for any kind of conditions. That's the idea."
