Cold weather is something football fans look forward to during the NFL playoffs each and every year. Whether it's the infamous tuck game or The Ice Bowl, frigid temperatures go hand in hand with playoff football.

No NFL game with temperatures below 24 degrees has ever finished with a total of 50 or more.
The temperature in KC on Sunday evening is projected to be as low as 15 degrees.
As long as it's under 24 degrees, which is almost a given at this point, history says there won't be more than 50 points scored when the Patriots and Chiefs take the field on Sunday. And this isn't a small sample size. It's never happened.
