(AP News) - The NFL’s first snow game of 2020 is underway between the Chiefs and Broncos in Denver, where the game time temperature is 14 degrees.
That’s the coldest October home game in Broncos history and the third-coldest game in Denver.
The same teams played in the snow last December in Kansas City when Patrick Mahomes threw for 340 yards in the Chiefs’ 23-3 win.
Before today, the Broncos had played a half-dozen October games with a kickoff temperature of 35 degrees or colder, and most of those didn’t have snow.
The previous coldest October game in Denver came on Oct. 12, 1969, against the Raiders when the temperature at kickoff was 23 degrees.
