It's the sixth week of the NFL season, and in the full swing of fall, weather is starting to have more of an impact.
Rain and chilly conditions will greet fans at several games this week with an early snow falling in Denver.
Take a look at the forecasts for week six games that could experience challenging weather for players and fans.
Bears at Dolphins - Sunday, 1 p.m. EDT
Chicago will travel south to take on Miami this week in an AFC-NFC showdown.
It will be a typical fall day in Miami with a mix of sun and clouds and the chance for some showers, but thunder is unlikely.
Should rain move over the area, the field will be slippery.
Tailgaters will enjoy temperatures in the mid-70s for most of the morning before the temperatures rise to near 90 F at kickoff.
With the added sunshine, the AccuWeather RealFeel® will rise near 100 degrees for the start of the game.
Steelers at Bengals - Sunday, 1 p.m. EDT
It will feel like a fall day in Cincinnati as the Bengals host the Steelers for a divisional rivalry game this week.
However, cloudy skies will bring some rain to the region.
The field will be slippery and could lead to fumbles and impact the passing game.
Morning tailgaters should dress in layers as conditions will be chilly with temperatures in the mid-40s. By kickoff, the temperature will settle in the lower to middle 50s.
Light winds won't have an impact on the game.
