Two of the best words in sports will be on display in the National Football League today: snow game.
The Denver Broncos are scheduled to host the Kansas City Chiefs at Empower Field at Mile High Stadium this afternoon. Winter weather is expected for the game, with temperatures in the teens and major snowfall expected all day.
The field is already covered in snow, but the tarp was down, so everything should be fine for kickoff. Still, there is expected to be some accumulation on the field during the game, as the snow is projected to fall until late this evening.

Snow games aren’t just fun to watch, they’re fun to play in, too. That’s what Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes thinks, anyway.
“I think I’m a snow game guy. I don’t know why, but I kind of like it. Everything’s just super slow and I’m just out here, like, standing straight in the pocket,” Mahomes said during a previous snow game.
