Chiefs-Dolphins Could Be One of Coldest NFL Games Ever

The Kansas City Chiefs and Miami Dolphins will play in shivering weather, but could it be one of the coldest NFL games ever played?

Besides the fact that the Miami Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs will be playing their NFL playoff game on Peacock, everyone is talking about the bone-chilling weather the two teams will play in on Saturday night.

The temperature in Kansas City is expected to be about 0 degrees Fahrenheit, a number that could even dip below zero by game time. To make matters worse, the wind chill could make it feel like -29 degrees Fahrenheit. It's an ironic twist to Miami's fate given the Dolphins play in a stadium that was designed to use the sun to make the opponent sideline much hotter, which is the ultimate home-field advantage.

Tua Tagovailoa and Tyreek Hill will attempt to do the seemingly impossible, which is beat Patrick Mahomes inside Arrowhead Stadium, and they'll have to do it in remarkably cold weather. There's been a lot of chatter about the coldest games in NFL history, and if this game drops below zero it has a chance to join these ones.

The Oakland Raiders would prevail over the Cleveland Browns, 14-12, in frost-bitten Ohio's Cleveland Stadium on Jan. 4, 1981. This AFC Divisional Playoff game is famously remembered for "Red Right 88," when Browns quarterback Brian Sipe threw an interception in the end zone late to lose the game. Oakland went on to win Super Bowl XV over the Philadelphia Eagles as Jim Plunkett earned MVP honors.

Eli Manning and the New York Giants beating Aaron Rodgers' Green Bay Packers in overtime, 23-20, on Jan. 20, 2008, in Green Bay, Wis., was only part of the story in this NFC Championship Game. The game itself was fantastic, as both teams traded blows until the very end, but the icy game-time temperatures at Lambeau Field earned this one the nickname "The Chilling Championship."

3. -6 Degrees, Vikings-Seahawks 2016

It's probably a smart thing that the Minnesota Vikings moved indoors to play their home games at U.S. Bank Stadium because their last one outside at TCF Bank almost froze everyone where they stood. Minnesota kicker Blair Walsh's late field goal sailed wide left to give Russell Wilson's Seattle Seahawks a bone-chilling 10-9 victory in the NFC Divisional Playoff game on Jan. 10, 2016 in Minneapolis.

2. -9 Degrees, Chargers-Bengals 1982

It's called "The Freezer Bowl" for a reason, and remembering San Diego Chargers quarterback Dan Fouts bundled up like Randy in "A Christmas Story" makes this one too good to forget. Fouts turned the ball over four times, and the Cincinnati Bengals prevailed to win the AFC Championship Game at Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati by a score of 27-7 on Jan. 10, 1982.

In the back of your mind, the silky voice of John Facenda begins to detail the "frozen tundra of Lambeau Field." Green Bay Packers quarterback Bart Starr followed Jerry Kramer's famous block to win the 1967 NFL Championship Game on December 31, 1967 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. While this title game is popular for pitting head coaches Vince Lombardi and Tom Landry of the Dallas Cowboys against each other, the coldest game in NFL history only deserves on nickname: The Ice Bowl.

Being caught outside in the blistering cold weather is never fun, but deliberately going to an NFL game when the temperatures are sub-zero is pure madness. I'll gladly sit back on my couch and watch the game on TV with the heat turned all the way up.
