While most people attending Sunday's game between the Seattle Seahawks and Minnesota Vikings at TCF Bank Stadium will bundle up, the Seahawks are refusing to let the frigid weather get to them.

In fact, a few players took the cold head-on, wearing shorts during pregame warm-ups.

Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson took to the field without gloves:

Offensive tackle Garry Gilliam Jr. gave fans a look at what the winter weather did to him:

Sunday's Wild Card Game is expected to be among the coldest contests in NFL history, with high temperatures expected to be around zero degrees.

It's so cold, the Vikings even tweeted a warning:

But the weather already got to Minnesota's Gjallarhorn:

Meanwhile, at least one Seahawk warmed up in a sleeveless shirt. Words can't describe how wild that is.

Don't worry, though. The Vikings were able to go with the next-man-up philosophy:

According to Weather.com, temperatures are expected to "rise" to one degree during the game, but it could feel like minus-19 at times. In other words, it's not exactly shorts weather.
