Week seven of the NFL season is here.
The Rams are the only undefeated team left while other divisional standings remain tight.
This week, strong winds will have an impact on several games in the northeastern United States.
Take a look at the full slate of forecasts here:
Panthers at Eagles - Sunday, 1 p.m. EDT
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.

Vikings at Jets - Sunday, 1 p.m. EDT
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.
Lions at Dolphins - Sunday, 1 p.m. EDT
It will be a hot, humid day in Miami as the Lions take on the Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium.
Temperatures around 90 F at kickoff will continue to rise throughout the game and with added sun and humidity, the RealFeel® will hit near 100 F during the first half.
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.
Saints at Ravens - Sunday, 4:05 p.m. EDT
The Saints will try to avoid a second loss on the season as they visit the Ravens in Baltimore this week.
It will be a breezy, autumnal day at M&T Bank Stadium.
Morning tailgaters will see temperatures in the mid-40s before the high hits in the mid-50s at kickoff. However, gusty winds will pull the RealFeel® down to the middle to lower 40s for most of the game.
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.
Cowboys at Redskins - Sunday, 4:25 p.m. EDT
The Cowboys will make their way to Washington for a rivalry game this week.
It will be a brisk, fall day near the capital for this NFC East matchup.
Fans can expect a dry, partly sunny day with some strong winds at times.
Consistent gusts between 10 and 20 mph will have an impact on play for much of the game, with some gusts up to 25 mph.
RealFeel® Temperatures will hover in the 40s throughout most of the game.
