Fans should head into the stadium with coats, hats and gloves. With clear skies, AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures will hover in the upper 20s during the game, which kicks off at 3 p.m. EST.

There is an outside chance an impending winter storm could sweep up the East Coast, but the game should be in the clear. Fans flying from major hubs along the Southeast may face delays, especially in Atlanta.
