On a positive note, it shouldn't be too windy during the game, with southwest winds forecast to reach just 8 mph before midnight. And the temperature is expected to remain in the low 70s.

During the season opener at Lincoln Financial Field against the Atlanta Falcons, kickoff was delayed by 45 minutes after a storm featuring lightning and gusty winds blew through Philadelphia. Fans were instructed to head to the concourses for safety, while both the Eagles and the Falcons returned to their locker rooms to wait out the storm.
