Sunday's NFL Divisional Round matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans will take place Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri and the forecast suggests it could be a fairly cold one.

As of Saturday, the forecast for Sunday's game at Arrowhead is calling for mostly sunny conditions with a high of 40 degrees and a low of 24.

While on the colder side, the game-time temperature is about what you'd expect in Kansas City at this point in the year, so it may not impact the Chiefs all that much. However, it could be a different story for the Texans.

The Texans' home field obviously comes in a much warmer climate, and with a retractable roof they don't often have to deal with any adverse weather conditions at all.

Sunday's AFC Divisional Round game has a 51-point over/under, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, and the potential for cold weather could impact the game. It's worth noting that these two teams combined for 55 points (a 31-24 win for the Texans in Week 6) in their first meeting this season, though that came in warmer weather.

While conditions seem relatively steady, with little chance of rain or snow, that could still change as we inch toward Sunday. Bettors would be wise to keep an eye on the weather report until kick off.
