Much of the talk leading up to Sunday's games was about the weather -- specifically the wind and how it affected the totals on five games. Those five games (Minnesota-Green Bay, New England-Buffalo, Tennessee-Cincinnati, Las Vegas-Cleveland and New Orleans-Chicago) moved down by an average of 6.5 points from opening line to closing line. Those are significant moves, and it wound up being an interesting lesson in getting the best of the number.
