It's the regular season game of the year. At least, it's the most hyped regular season game of the year.
You know the storylines. Peyton vs. Tom. Welker's return to Gillette. The Broncos' really special offense. The Patriots struggling offense (even if they have truly turned a corner, we'll still be hearing about it for now).
The Patriots, fortunately, may have a previously unpredicted advantage. According to weather reports, temperature is expected to be around 20 degrees at kick-off, with winds over 20 MPH, making for a wind chill effect in the single digits. As Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston highlighted, Peyton Manning has typically struggled in sub-freezing temperatures. Advantage Patriots.
