About a foot of snow fell in the Denver metro area forcing the Denver Broncos to move their practice indoors on Thursday.
The team heads out to Buffalo today where they were expecting a rain/snow mix and a high temperature of 31 degrees. Welcome to December football, folks.
Mario Haggan played in Buffalo for five seasons before coming to Denver, and he said that he’s never worn anything but short sleeves while playing.
There are plenty of guys in Green Bay and Chicago that will only wear short sleeves even if temperatures dip into the single digits. What do coaches think of this? Do they think that how warm players dress will affect their ability to perform on the field?
“You let them have their own comfort level of what they wear,” John Fox said. ”Everybody’s cold tolerance is different.”
The Broncos practice outside every day so they should be able to handle the frigid Buffalo air better than say the Dolphins or the Cardinals.
Buffalo’s forecast on Saturday is calling for a 30% chance of snow and a high of 34 degrees.
