Forecast Projects Bears Will Play Their Coldest Game Ever


Once winter hits in Chicago, the best place to be is inside. Unfortunately for the Bears and their fans, Soldier Field doesn’t have a roof, so they have no choice but to endure the frigid temperatures. With the Bears nowhere near playoff contention, it’s likely fans will sit out this Sunday and watch the game from their heated homes.

The latest forecast calls for a temperature of one degree below zero, which would be the coldest game in Bears history. According to the team, they’ve been keeping track of kickoff temperatures since 1963.

While the weather will keep certain Bears fans away, it could also slow down Aaron Rodgers, who’s battling an ongoing calf injury. Nonetheless, if you plan on attending this contest, make sure to wear hundreds of layers.
