Carolina will head north to Philadelphia this week to take on the Eagles.

It will be a cold, brisk day at Lincoln Financial Field. Fans should bring out the cold weather gear as AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures will hover in the upper 30s and low 40s F throughout the day.

Winds up to 25 mph will gust at times, which could impact the passing game and will add yardage to kicks into the south end zone.

The sun will come out at times, providing some relief from the chilly conditions.

In an AFC-NFC clash, the Jets will host the Vikings on Sunday at MetLife Stadium.

It will be a cold day in East Rutherford and fans should head to the stadium with jackets and extra layers.

High winds will bring RealFeel® temperatures close to the 40-degree-Fahrenheit mark for most of the game. Winds up to 25 mph will gust at times from morning until the end of play.

The strong winds will likely have an impact on the kicking game, blowing toward the south end zone.

Small breaks of sun will make it feel slightly warmer at times, which could pull the high closer to 50 at times.

It will be a hot, humid day in Miami as the Lions take on the Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium.

Fans should dress in light, loose-fitting clothing and stay hydrated.

The day is expected to be mostly dry, but a brief, light shower cannot be ruled out.

Strong gusts up to 25 mph could have an impact on the kicking game.

The sky will be partly sunny. Fans should be prepared with jackets and extra layers.
