Football is famously played in any weather. Rain or shine -- the game must go on. But some games put that credo to the test. Check out four of the worst weather games in recent NFL history.
The 2011 contest between the Carolina Panthers and Jacksonville Jaguars started like any other game. But a sunny September day quickly turned ugly, dumping over four inches of rain in less than an hour. The stadium steps turned into waterfalls and the field transformed into a soggy, mud pit.
Needless to say, neither team put up many points (the game ended 16-10 Carolina.) It's hard to move the ball when you can barely stand up.
Snow games are a stalwart of the NFL season. But few were as bad as this January, 2010 bout between the Buffalo Bills and the Indianapolis Colts. A whopping eight inches of snow fell on the field that day.
More like Buffalo Brrrs, right?
The Bills -- no strangers to cold weather conditions -- went on to hang 30 points on the Colts.
They called it "Monday Night Mud." The Pittsburgh Steelers had recently re-sodded their field before this 2007 game against the Miami Dolphins. What do you get when you combine fresh tuff with a torrential rainstorm?
You get a 3-0 snoozer. The MVP for the game? Any blade of grass than managed to survive without drowning.
Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay Packers, is commonly known as the "Frozen Tundra." Can you guess why?
Look no further than this cold night in January, 2008, when the Seattle Seahawks came to town for a slushy, snowy mess of a game.
Brett Favre, who played his fair share of chilly games during his Hall of Fame career, had a banner night in the blizzard. He threw three touchdowns, and threw a snowball at a teammate for good measure.
