The massive effects of Hurricane Ian didn’t cause any NFL games to get moved or postponed, but it will mean several games have rain on the weather forecast Sunday. That includes the Jacksonville Jaguars’ Week 4 road game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
According to The Weather Channel, it’s expected to rain for most of the day in Philadelphia. It’s unlikely to ever be a heavy downpour on Lincoln Financial Field, but the light to moderate rain will make it a wet affair throughout the game.
The Eagles covered the field at the stadium overnight before removing the tarp Sunday morning:

There’s also expected to be 10 to 20 mile per hour winds Sunday, which will present more challenges for the Jaguars and Eagles passing games.
Expect the Jaguars to lean heavily on the running back duo of James Robinson and Travis Etienne against an Eagles defense that allowed 5.4 yards per carry — third most in the NFL — through the first three weeks of the season.
