Listen To Dave Fields Afternoons From 3-7pm
The weather forecast for Saturday's 8:15 pm kickoff is a cold one. The temperatures will be hovering around 4 degrees at the time of the kick-off. The wind chill will make it feel like negative two.
If you are going to be tailgating leading up to the game, you may want to make some friends would are having a campfire. The high temperature for Saturday is going to be only 10 degrees and the windchill will be sub-zero for much of the day.
On top of the very cold temperatures, there is a slight chance of light snow.
Plus with possible strong winds, we could see the same game conditions we saw on Monday Night Football when the Bills lost to New England at home.
In that game, it was all about the running game for the Patriots as New England QB Mac Jones only attempted three passes. The Bills are hoping to force the rookie QB into more attempts than that on Saturday.
This will be the first time the Buffalo Bills and the New England Patriots will meet in an NFL playoff game. The last time these two teams met in the playoffs, the year was 1963 and both teams were part of the American Football League. In fact, The New England Patriots didn't even exist. They were known as the Boston Patriots.
