Patriots Could Play In Their Coldest Game Ever Sunday
This could be only the 4th Patriots game to be played in single digit weather.
New England is not the only place that's experiencing a cold snap. Their trip to the Midwest for the AFC Championship game could prove to be one of the coldest games the team has ever suited up for.
With an arctic front set to hover above Arrowhead Stadium like a Goodyear blimp this weekend, the long range forecast calls for 6-day weather forecasts calls for game time temperatures from models range from -5°F to 10°F, according to Ryan Maue's Twitter.
A look at history has the Patriots playing only three games in single digits. According to NESN, the coldest being 1989 game in Pittsburgh, which had a kickoff temperature of 3 degrees. The Patriots and Chiefs have cold weather history, with single digit temps registered during a game in 1963.
The Chiefs, who lost to the Patriots 43-40 in Foxboro, Mass., in Week 6, have opened as three-point home favorites.
