If the forecast is any indication, don't get your hopes up.
The Buffalo Bills have only beaten New England twice at home since 2000.
It was on the warmest two days the teams have played here: 74 degrees on Sept. 7, 2003 (31-0 win), and 82 degrees on Sept. 25, 2011 (34-31 win).
In other words, the New England Patriots aren't intimidated by Buffalo's reputation for cold weather. They're 6-0 in Buffalo since 2000 when the mercury is below 50 degrees. And the Patriots are 5-0 in December games in Buffalo.
Sunday's expected high temperature? 46 degrees.
The last time it was colder for a New England visit to Buffalo was the day after Christmas 2010.
The high temperature that day was 23 degrees with a low of 15. The wind chill was in the single digits and 4 inches of snow was on the ground.
After an early Rian Lindell field goal that day, the Patriots scored 34 unanswered points and won 34-3.
Here's the 17-year retrospective of the Patriots at The Ralph and New Era Field:
|12/16/2001||36°||New England||12-9 OT|
|12/17/2000||47°||New England||13-10 OT|
