Winters in New England are super cold, and the Los Angeles Chargers do not really like the weather. However, we are almost certain that Melvin Gordon does not hate the weather.
The Los Angeles Chargers arrived in Providence, R.I., on Friday night ahead of the AFC Divisional Round game with the New England Patriots. As you may know, the teams will play in freezing temperatures. Gillette Stadium will be nothing like the field Melvin Gordon is used to play at. But, he does not mind that at all.

LA players landed
in the Rhode Island capital, and it was 16 degrees. Not the warmest welcome,
“This is some Wisconsin weather right here, baby,” Gordon said.
The running back
played college ball at the University of Wisconsin. Yes, he can handle this
temperature. Running back James White was at the same university.
The rest of the team
will probably have trouble adjusting to the weather.
“I just think the ability to practice in it. 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,”
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said on Friday.
“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.”
