    Expect mostly dry weather for Sunday's NFL Divisional Round game between the Denver Broncos and San Diego Chargers, but fans will need to hold onto their hats.

    A gusty west-northwesterly wind will buffet Sports Authority Field at Mile High, said AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Brian Edwards.

    Sustained winds will be between 15 and 25 mph with gusts up to around 35 mph.

    "There won't be much precipitation outside the mountains, but the gusty winds may affect play," Edwards said.

    The passing and kicking games will be most impacted by the winds.

    It will be mild for the 4:40 p.m. EST kickoff with temperatures in the middle 40s.
