The weather will be a bit of a wild card on Sunday.
When the New England Patriots travel to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs in the AFC Championship game, they will be facing just a little bit of inclement weather. Accuweather originally reported temperatures below zero, although now it appears like it will hover around 20 degrees. Meanwhile, this week there was quite a bit of snow, which left the Arrowhead Stadium in a bit of a predicament.
Travis Hogan, the head groundskeeper for the stadium, took to Twitter to explain how the crew had to take some precautionary measures to make sure the stadium is ready for Sunday.
"We weren’t planning on a resod this week, but Mother Nature had other plans," Hogan tweeted. "10 inches of snow and all the snow in the stadium being hauled out on the sidelines changed things. My crew did an unbelievable job. They are the BEST! Everyone is tired but we are ready. Let’s Roll!"
Earlier this week Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said he has no problem with his team playing in the cold weather conditions and that he's just excited that the team gets to play in an AFC Championship game.
Belichick added that if possible, the team will try to practice in conditions similar to what will appear on Sunday.
