Last week, the Minnesota Vikings and St. Louis Rams battled under windy conditions as the broadcast team was sure to remind you every three seconds. As it turns out, the wind greatly impacted the flow of the game with special teams adjustments and an overtime coin toss decision from Mike Zimmer.
This week, it looks like the Vikings could be playing under similar circumstances in Oakland.
As of this posting, weather.com is noting a wind advisory for the entire area until 10:00 PM tonight. Sustained winds of 20 to 30 MPH are expected by game time, with gusts as high as 40 to 50 MPH also expected to make an appearance.
