The weather forecast for the game reveals a predicted daytime high of 55 degrees, with AccuWeather’s RealFeel aligning at the same temperature. However, an 84% chance of rain adds an unpredictable element to the matchup. The anticipated daytime rain accumulation is 0.32 inches, and there is a 0% chance of thunderstorms.

Wind conditions during the game are expected to be relatively mild, with daytime wind predicted at ENE 4 mph, accompanied by gusts reaching 12 mph. This suggests that while wind may be a factor, it is not likely to be a dominant force in the game.

The Jets, amid a four-game losing streak, look to rebound against the Falcons, who secured a 24-15 victory over the New Orleans Saints in the previous week. Tim Boyle, stepping in for Zach Wilson, faced challenges in the Jets’ recent AFC East matchup against the Miami Dolphins. The Falcons, led by Desmond Ridder and supported by Bijan Robinson’s impressive performance, aim to capitalize on their recent win.
