The Kansas City Chiefs and the New England Patriots are about seven hours away from kickoff at the AFC Championship Game.

The Chiefs and the Patriots will be playing for a spot in the Super Bowl, taking on either the Los Angeles Rams or the New Orleans Saints.

Earlier in the week, weather projections forecasted an "arctic blast" hitting Kansas City on Sunday for the game.

That will no longer be the case, though.

Weather.com is projecting a milder evening in Kansas City, with temperatures being at 18 degrees this evening.

"A mix of clouds and sun during the morning will give way to cloudy skies this afternoon. High around 25F. Winds ESE at 5 to 10 mph," weather.com writes.

The Chiefs' grounds crew was forced to go through some field changes prior to kickoff, though.

"We weren’t planning on a resod this week, but Mother Nature had other plans. 10 inches of snow and all the snow in the stadium being hauled out on the sidelines changed things. My crew did an unbelievable job. They are the BEST! Everyone is tired but we are ready. Let’s Roll!" the head groundskeeper tweeted.

The Chiefs and the Patriots are set to kick off at 6:40 p.m. E.T.

The game will be on CBS.
