The AFC won’t see snow in both divisional round games, but the freezing temperatures will remain consistent.
According to weather.com, the forecast for Sunday’s divisional round game at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., is a high of 28 degrees and low of 19 degrees. The Patriots kick off against the Chargers at 1:05 p.m. ET, which is the warmest time of the day.
When asked Friday if the cold would give New England an advantage, Patriots coach Bill Belichick reaffirmed who his team is playing.
“We’re playing the Chargers, we’re not playing the weather,” Belichick said. “Whatever it is, is.”
Kansas City battled Indianapolis — and the elements — at Arrowhead Stadium on Saturday after a snowstorm blew through the city.
