Browns vs. Raiders: Weather expected to have impact on Week 13 game in Oakland

Matt Sullivan

The Browns and Raiders appear headed for a sloppy contest in Week 13 on Sunday. Also, they're expecting a lot of rain in the forecast.

As the Cleveland Browns head out west to take on the Oakland Raiders, the forecast isn't looking sunny as far as the weather goes, at least.

According to a report from Will Burge of ESPNCleveland.com on Thursday, torrential rain and wind gusts of over 25 miles per hour are expected on Sunday in Oakland, which could add to the difficulty for the Browns, as they will try to end their 12-game losing streak on the road.

The potentially sloppy conditions, to go along with quarterback Brandon Weeden's recent concussion, could mean an increased workload for rookie running back Trent Richardson. Weeden however, is reported to have recovered fully. For the season, Richardson has 755 rushing yards and six touchdowns on the ground, which ranks seventh in the league.

The Browns earned a bit of experience in bad weather earlier this season when they defeated the San Diego Chargers, 7-6, in Cleveland in a game that featured lots of rain and plenty of wind.
