A meteorologist in Florida says it's "borderline dangerous" to be in the stands of one NFL game this afternoon.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are hosting the Philadelphia Eagles at Raymond James Stadium. It's been a good afternoon for the Bucs, who are currently blowing out the Eagles, 27-13.

It's a hot one, though.

Weather.com says it's currently 91 degrees in Florida and it probably feels a lot hotter than that sitting in the stands at the stadium.

FOX 13's meteorologist tweeted the following before kickoff:

"Borderline dangerous heat/humidity for fans in sun at @RJStadium. If feeling ill, find some shade in concourses and grab a water," he tweeted.

There are a couple of NFL games in Florida taking place today. The game between the Jaguars and the Patriots is being played in Jacksonville. That one is thankfully a 4:25 p.m. E.T. kickoff, so hopefully it'll cool down a bit before then.

The Patriots are doing everything they can to stay cool on the sideline this evening.

Stay hydrated out there.
