Soldier Field getting snow, too
By Kevin Seifert
While Minnesotans dig out from Saturday's blizzard, the Chicagoland area is getting hit Sunday. Those who are already at Soldier Field are reporting snow, whipping winds and chilly temperatures. So the Chicago Bears' game against the New England Patriots late Sunday will have that added level of interest.
ESPN Stats & Information has posted some interesting numbers on Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's performance in such games. But to me the most interesting figure it his: 9-0.
That's right. The Patriots are 9-0 in games that have featured significant snowfall under coach Bill Belichick, according to the team.
We'll have more on this game, and the Green Bay Packers-Detroit Lions matchup, as the day progresses. Trust me.
