The Tennessee Titans prepare to visit Kansas City and the Chiefs for the AFC Championship Game this Sunday at 3:05 p.m. ET. This will be a rematch of a Week 10 game in which the Titans edged out the Chiefs by a field goal, 35-32.

Kansas City and Arrowhead Stadium have become known for harsh conditions this time of year, with the Chiefs playing in the snow a couple of times last January.

While there's no precipitation in the forecast this Sunday, the temperatures could get quite low. As of Sunday, Jan. 19, it's projected to be in the the 15-20 degrees Fahrenheit range by kickoff a little after 3 p.m. EST, with small gusts of wind in the 11 mph range.

While Nashville, where the Titans play, is usually warmer than Kansas City this time of year, Tennessee shouldn't be too affected by the cold in this one, especially after winning back-to-back games in New England and Baltimore.

In ways this might favor the Titans' run-heavy approach a bit, but Mahomes and the Chiefs have proven they can operate and win in frigid temperatures.

The sportsbooks appear to agree, as this game has an over/under of 51.5 points, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, which is five points higher than the total of its NFC counterpart.

The cold weather could make an impact on special teams though, as it's harder to kick the ball in those conditions. Still, at this time of the year, both teams just have to be happy they don't have to deal with snow or freezing rain.
