High of 33, low of 13. 10% chance of precipitation.

For reference, Friday's forecast has a high of 47, low of 26. It's getting cold just in time for the game.

It's going to be ridiculously cold.

20 is not that cold...for football weather. What really impacts it is WIND!!! What are the wind conditions please? If its like 5MPH or so, Brady will light it up. If its more than 15MPH then you have something!

Somewhere between 11 and 16 mph. So not too extreme.


And you're right, 20 is not *that* cold. But nights in New England, after the sun is down... it's going to have an effect.

You do realise Tom Brady is actually the best cold weather QB in NFL history, google it and look for yourself.

Didn't Tim Tebow play in Florida? Hilarious!

So long as the NFL keeps making up special rules to make it illegal for Tom Brady to fumble in the snow. :)

It will make this year's choke job even better:

New England, in other words, has been a paper tiger since its last Super Bowl victory back in 2004. It's a team that dominates in the regular season but habitually gets bounced from the playoffs by teams it should beat.

The 2006 Patriots went 12-4 and dominated the Colts in the AFC title game, before suffering the greatest second-half collapse in conference championship history.

The record-setting 2007 Patriots went 16-0, and entered the Super Bowl 18-0, before suffering one of the great upset losses in history, falling 17-14 to the Giants in Super Bowl XLII.

The 2009 Patriots went just 10-6, then were humiliated at home by the 9-7 Ravens in the first round of the playoffs, 33-14.

The 2010 Patriots went 14-2 and were bounced from the playoffs, again at home, this time by the division-rival Jets.

Ugh, that's a lot of fail.

Latest forecast is temp of 21 degrees at kickoff, falling to 17 by end of game, with winds of 10 mph. Falling all the way to 9 degrees later that night - a real cold front arriving.

"Cold" is low-mid 30's - around freezing. I would call this forcast "Very cold", a whole level below normal winter cold. The worst I remember in NE was against Tenn in playoff game in '05 I think, when it was < 10 degrees at kickoff.

Not really sure who it favors. Brady won't be bothered by it, but I wish it were going to be warmer.

10 MPH is not that bad...I think it favors NE as they are a passing team. Footing will be fine, etc.

Wrong, bad weather favors running teams. Two years ago Rodgers lit up Pitt in freezing weather. I remember because he got me to the championship in Fantasy Football with that performance. Hence I asked if it would be windy. 20 and minimal wind is better than 40 and 25 MPH winds.

Actually, cold weather is well known for hurting passing stats. That doesn't mean that QB's don't have good games in cold weather sometimes, just that overall passing stats drop in cold weather. You should do some research before running at the mouth.

I agree with it would favor Brady. WRs know where they are going. DBs do not and have to react to the cut.

I may agree with you but Google Brady and cold weather. He is like the best cold weather QB in NFL history.

Brady is the best cold-weather quarterback in history (since 1960), with a remarkable 18-2 (.900) career record in games played in snow, ice or below freezing temperatures.

Some other notable cold-weather champions? Green Bay Hall of Famer Bart Starr, hero of the Ice Bowl, was 15-4; Pittsburgh's legendary big-game gunslinger Terry Bradshaw was 14-4.

Cutting shouldn't be an issue in this one. There won't be any snow on the ground. It'll just be cold.

Brady has an impressive record under most circumstances. That's what happens when your team averages 12 wins a season over a decade plus.

Manning is impressive overall too, check out his cold weather stats. Don't take NE lightly, I think they have a huge advantage this week. We need all things to click to win. ALL!

He ripped Cutler and CHI as new one couple years ago. And I think he did the same to TENN maybe the same year. Both snow games

Seriously, did you just say "Don't take NE lightly?"

If there's any problem we have from this point forward, it won't be taking anyone lightly. Being taken lightly yes, taking others lightly? Not possible.

There seems to be the perception that the game was close if not for the three TOs, etc. and if those are eliminated Denver will win. I am not so sure.

Wind would probably hurt our passing game more seeing as wind hurts long passes more than short timing routes like the Pats like to use.

If those are eliminated the game is very different, and the logical conclusion is that it would be much, much closer. I think most Denver fans are confident we can win it if it's close at the end. That's the key.

The latest forecast for Boston area from NWS... (I work in the weather field)

Saturday
Partly sunny. Much cooler with highs in the lower 30s. West winds 15 to 20 mph. Gusts up to 35 mph...decreasing to 25 mph in the afternoon.

Saturday Night
Mostly clear. Much cooler with lows around 11. Northwest winds 15 to 20 mph.

What's troubling about this forecast for Saturday night is WIND. If the temperature drops to say 20 degrees by kickoff with winds of 15mph, we're looking at wind chill of 5 ABOVE ZERO. Not good.

Which would be true if Denver was located along the equator. Its just cold, and if its windy it mitigates the passing game...which favors us anyway.
