It’s a cold one in Buffalo.
The weather was one of the biggest storylines entering the NFL wild-card matchup between the New England Patriots and Bills at Highmark Stadium.
Temperatures in Buffalo were around 7 degrees — not accounting for wind chill — right before kickoff Saturday, and though he retired ahead of this season, former wide receiver Julian Edelman joined his old teammates in freezing solidarity all the way from Manhattan.
“Riding out the elements with my guys,” Edelman captioned a photo he posted pregame, showing him sitting outside in shorts and a T-shirt while sitting in front of a television on an outdoor patio.
Edelman didn’t quite take things as far as David Andrews did, as the Patriots center opted for a sleeveless shirt in warmups. Bills quarterback Josh Allen reportedly was going to go sleeveless during the game, but he ended up layering up for Buffalo’s first drive.
Cold is mental.
