Frostbitten: Seahawks' Chancellor shows damage from icy Vikings tilt
The Seattle Seahawks prevailed in the third-coldest playoff game in NFL history, but star safety Kam Chancellor came out feeling like a weather-beaten man.
Chancellor posted a video on his Instagram account Friday showing the damage caused to his hands by the bitter cold in Seattle's wild card game at the Minnesota Vikings on Jan. 10. The temperature at kickoff was minus-6 degrees with a wind chill of minus-25.
“This what it looks like playing in negative 21-degree weather," Chancellor said in the video. "Wind chill. Frostbite. Skin peeling. Iguana skin. Ewww.”
The Seahawks squeezed out a 10-9 victory when Vikings kicker Blair Walsh missed a go-ahead 27-yard field goal attempt in the final seconds.
