Seahawks-Vikings Wild Card Game Will Be One of the Coldest in NFL History
By beating the Green Bay Packers last Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings clinched the NFC North title and secured home-field advantage for their Wild Card match-up against the Seattle Seahawks. What their week 17 victory also did was it set up the likelihood that they host one of the coldest games in NFL history this Sunday.
According to The Weather Network, the Minneapolis area will endure -6°F temperatures, with 10 mph winds that will make it feel more like -24°F. Once the game rolls around (1pm ET start), temperatures are expected to “warm” to around 1°F, with a wind chill that feels more like -15°F.
We’re still four days away from Sunday’s NFC Wild Card Game at TCF Bank Stadium, but if the early estimates are accurate, this game could crack the list of top 10 coldest games in NFL history—though it’s probably safe to say that the top two on the list are pretty safe for now:

As for those of you heading out to the game, I recommend you read the following advice from Fox 9:
Tickets for the Seahawks-Vikings game are now on sale, and some seats will definitely be warmer than others. Any seat on the Vikings sideline will be in the sun, which includes Sections 101-123 and Sections 201-223. All seats in the outdoor club or loge boxes also include access to the climate-controlled lounge and fireplaces of the DQ Club Room. All outdoor loge boxes include above-seat heating to help fans stay warm.
