Windy conditions expected at Soldier Field

By Kevin Seifert

MINNEAPOLIS -- As we discussed Friday, I'll be working Sunday from the Metrodome, where the Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings will kick off at 1 p.m. ET. That means I won't be at Soldier Field for the Chicago Bears' showdown with the Houston Texans, and it sounds like I could be missing some interesting weather by the lake.

The forecast around the 8:30 p.m. ET kickoff calls for unseasonably warm temperatures in the low 60's but with winds between 20 and 30 miles per hour.

The Texans have a strong running game to rely on if it gets too difficult to throw, but generally speaking, the Bears get a big advantage in such situations. Back in a bit.
