Patriots Report: Does Anyone Else in the AFC Stand a Snowball's Chance in Hell?

I didn't have to look it up in the Farmers Almanac to figure it would be bloody frigid to downright blizzardy in New England by the third weekend in January.

But I did anyway.

For the coming year, the Farmers’ Almanac predicts that Old Man Winter will exhibit a “split personality.” The eastern third of the country, (New England down to Florida and as far west as the lower Ohio River and Mississippi River Valley), will experience colder-than-normal winter temperatures. Across New England, where relatively balmy temperatures prevailed during the winter of 2009–2010, the upcoming winter will be the equivalent of a cold slap in the face, as we forecast much colder-than-normal temperatures.

Granted it's not down to the day, and god knows what they consider balmy temperatures in New England, the area always seems to be blanketed in some degree of snow come playoff time, but there you have it.

It'll be cold as hell in Patriot-land come playoff time and the bigger picture question prevails, even in the best of circumstances, no snow covered tundra, a relatively balmy 20 degrees, does any other team in the American Football Conference stand a snowballs chance in hell of keeping Tom Brady and the Pats from their seeming destiny in Dallas.
