Single most important (but undiscussed) element this season

Jay Clemons, who writes a fantasy column for si.com, made a fascinating point that might be a legitimate advantage for the Lions:  

5. It's quite possible the Lions won't have any bad-weather games this season.

Detroit, which enjoys eight games inside Ford Field, travels to Chicago, Minnesota and Green Bay in September and has three warm-weather roadies in November/December (Dallas, Tampa Bay, Miami). The only potential roadblock: A Nov. 14 tilt at Buffalo.

For a team constructed to play in a dome, I think this is a HUGE boost for us.  Speed guys like CJ and Best will reap the benefits, and it will help Stafford (a Texan who went to school in Georgia) with his accuracy.  And the one possible cold game, at Buffalo, is one of the few games this year where we may be favored.  

That being said, some could argue that a team with a secondary as shaky as ours would benefit from some cold weather games (case in point: we played decently in the finale at Chicago last year in the cold).  Thoughts?
