    Snow could accumulate to as much as 8 inches.

    The warning goes into effect at 3 o'clock. Kickoff is at 3:30. CST

    Stadium grass left uncovered from rain, fog

    Fog blanketed the field of Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass., on Thursday. The stadium's grass was uncovered Thursday and during rain earlier in the week. NFL rules say the field doesn't have to be covered until the day and night before a game if there is any chance of precipitation.

    I hate the cold weather and i'll take houston's hot and humid weather over that anyday, but I do think they make for good football games. If both teams are used to playing in that kind of weather.

    I'm cheering for the Patriots and I like what I'm seein so far. The Colts had had a number of 3 and outs and Manning hasn't been able to do anything. Unfortunately their is plenty of time left in the game and anything could happen. I just hope New England can keep it up.

    Go Pats!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :jumpbanan :banana:

    It's been a number of times today where Jake Scott (The colts backup RT) has gotten beat and been called for penalties......... oooooooo nice play by the Bruschi that was nice, but i think they might challenge it.

    That was a beautiful catch by Faulk right there. Pats are really sticking it to Indy now, on both sides of the football.

    No mystery to beating the Colts, just play them in a snowstorm.

    LoL, pretty much.

    I've always wondered this, I've never been to a Texans game at the stadiium and i wanted to know if when the roof is open in Augusts, can you feel the heat and humidity inside the stadium. And do you think it plays a part on the opposing team even though the Texans practice in a bubble.

    This game is even uglier for the Colts than the AFC Championship game was last year. If Peyton can't beat a NE team with lots of injuries what hope does he have against one at full strength in the future.

    none.

    The Colts and Cheifs have proven exactly why you can't win a championship with a juggernaut offense and no D. Peyton will never win a superbowl ring as long as Indy only has an explosive offense and Dwight Freeney as the only playmaker on their team.

    All in all next weeks game with the Pats @ Pittsburgh should be a good one. And will someone please tell me why Indy wasted their time challenging that fumble?
