On Sunday night, the Kansas City Chiefs will host the Pittsburgh Steelers at Arrowhead Stadium for an AFC Wild Card matchup. It'll be the second time this season that the two teams will meet on GEHA Field, where the temperature could be a factor this weekend.
Kansas City Weather Sunday Night
As of Friday morning, Sunday night's forecast from Weather.com points to the temperature dropping to a low of 27 degrees around game time. Skies are expected to be partly cloudy, with just a 9% chance of precipitation.
Steelers vs Chiefs Weather
While there isn't expected to be any precipitation on Sunday, Kansas City is expected to see around four inches of snow over the next 36 hours. Any snow should be cleaned from the field by game time, but it'll be interesting to see what happens if there's more snow than expected.
The Steelers and Chiefs last met at Arrowhead Stadium in Week 16, resulting in a 36-10 Kansas City victory. The temperature had a high of 60 degrees that day, so this week's meeting will be a lot colder. Considering how there's no dome to the stadium, the players will have no choice but to embrace the cold.
FanDuel Sportsbook doesn't seem to think that the cold temperatures will affect Kansas City's chances of winning big on Sunday. The Chiefs are currently the 12.5-point favorites over the Steelers, with -110 odds to cover the spread.
