It has been very cold here in the Northeast. At the kickoff of the New York Jets vs. New England Patriots game, it was 13 degrees.

Instead of just letting the cold temperatures go, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick wanted to troll his arch rivals. The Patriots put a thermometer in the Jets tunnel, which the players had to go past in order to go onto the field.


Cold weather

According to reports, this was the coldest regular-season game ever at Gillette Stadium. According to the New York Daily News, the Patriots hosted an AFC Division game on January 10th, 2004 against the Tennessee Titans when it was 4 degrees with a wind chill of -10.

The cold weather affected many of the NFL games in Week 17. It was also 11 degrees in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, as the Steelers hosted the Cleveland Browns at Heinz Field.

It was also 16 degrees as the Washington Redskins played the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium. The New York Daily News said that this was the Redskins coldest game since they defeated the Chicago Bears in an NFC Divisional Round game on January 10th, 1988.

The Philadelphia Eagles also hosted the Dallas Cowboys in 19 degrees. With the wind chill, the temperature at Lincoln Financial Field in South Philadelphia felt like 3 degrees.
