Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is well aware of the challenge that comes his way while the Los Angeles Chargers are not that thrilled about the weather in Foxboro. Brady knows that the freezing temperatures are giving the Patriots an advantage on Sunday. TB12 came forward with a huge statement, and he is super serious about it.
When asked about the advantage, head coach Bill Belichick said, “We’re playing the Chargers. We’re not playing the weather — whatever it is, it is. We’re going to be on the same field.” However, Brady’s statement offers a completely different aspect.
New England is dodging the snowstorm
The weather forecast predicted snow in Foxboro, but LA players will be safe from that because the snowstorm will avoid the area. The Patriots are well aware of this weather, and seems like they are fine with that.
“I just think the
ability to practice in it,” Brady said during his Friday media session. “Like today, it’s very similar to what
we’re going to get on Sunday, so just knowing how many layers you have to put
on, and kind of how you’re going to feel when you have the nice, warm, heated
benches out there like we will on Sunday.
“It’s cold and
that’s just this part of this time of year. But it’s good to be playing when
it’s cold out, it’s good to be playing this time of year in Foxborough.”
“The weather changed
a little bit yesterday,” the
quarterback said. “It snowed at the start, then got sunny, then got cloudy,
then got windy, then got sunny and it was just a bunch of different things.
Just to practice in it, we’re prepared for it, and hopefully, we can use some
of the things that we’ve learned to our advantage.”
Let’s wait until Sunday. Maybe we will see a few snowflakes
here and there.
