The Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots will meet in the AFC Championship Game in just a few days. Both teams put forth impressive displays in the Divisional round with the Chiefs dominating the Indianapolis Colts and the Patriots dispatching the Los Angeles Chargers with five first-half touchdowns.

Weather for Sunday night's game between the Chiefs and Patriots is expected to be cold, very cold. An "Arctic Blast" is expected to hit Kansas City this weekend and temperatures are expected to dip into the single digits at kickoff.

With the poor weather in mind, the Kansas City grounds crew is already working on the turf to make sure the playing surface is in top shape for game time.

The grounds crew has some work to do, but they did a great job of getting the stadium ready for the Colts game despite several inches of snow falling on the area.

Kansas City and New England kick off at 6:40 p.m. ET on CBS.
