Few things are as great as the NFL playoffs, and nothing is as great as football in the snow and freezing cold, so Seahawks-Vikings on Sunday should be awesome.
For every one of us watching in the warm confines of our home, that is.
Seattle and Minnesota are facing sub-zero temperatures in what projects to be one of the coldest games in NFL history. Right now, Weather.com has a high of 0 degrees and a low of -9 for Minneapolis on Sunday. Of course, that’s before considering wind chill (fortunately, the game will kick off at 12:05 p.m. local time).
As the Star Tribune points out, 0 degrees (or colder) would be the coldest home playoff game in Vikings history, and there have been only nine games in NFL history where the temperature never rose above 0.
The coldest home game ever for the Vikings was Dec. 3, 1972 against Chicago, per the Star Tribune, where temperatures were -2 degrees (the sixth-coldest game ever in league history).
