Broncos Patriots weather: It will be 50 degrees warmer for Brady-Manning XV

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Your Broncos vs. Patriots weather report for the 2013-2014 playoffs indicates it will be much, much warmer than Tom Brady's and Peyton Manning's Week 12 matchup.

On November 24, 2013 - Peyton Manning and Tom Brady's first game of the 2013 season - the game time temps hit 20 degrees with a wind chill of 5-10 degrees. It felt like it was 10 degrees.

On January 19, 2014 - the rematch with the Super Bowl on the line - the game time temps will hit 57 degrees with a "RealFeel" of 61 degrees.

Night and day. Literally. A 50-degree swing.

Bring on that prolific passing offense.

Even though Manning's struggles in the cold are more urban myth than fact (at least as it attributes to his team's success or failure), there's no denying that the cold and wind affected Manning in Week 12. Peyton Manning had his lowest offensive production of the season against the Patriots in frigid Foxboro, throwing for only 150 yards in the overtime loss. His next-lowest yardage total wasn't even close to that low, coming in Week 17 with 266 yards. Manning only played one half that game.

To wit, Manning has a respectable 93.3 passer rating in games played this season under 40 degrees, but he boasts a 112.4 rating in all other games. He and his receivers get in better rhythm when the weather's nice. Manning has a better grip on the football, he and his offense are more comfortable, and his receivers aren't catching an ice cube.

Here comes the offense, and I say, it's alright.
