Sunday's Kansas City Chiefs-New England Patriots AFC Championship Game is going to be one of the coldest playoff games in recent memory.

An "arctic blast" is set to hit Kansas City this weekend, dropping temperatures into the teens and single digits.

The Chiefs and the Patriots will be playing for a spot in the Super Bowl, so they'll likely be able to tough it out just fine. Still, everyone better bundle up.

The field at Arrowhead Stadium is apparently going through some changes before Sunday's game, too.

James Palmer tweeted out a video of the Arrowhead Stadium end zone turf getting replaced. It's pretty cool to watch.

The Chiefs' grounds crew has been laying new sod in various parts of the field in anticipation of Sunday's game. Kansas City has apparently done this before several big games in the past.

The Chiefs and the Colts played through some bad weather during last weekend's game, as a snow storm hit Kansas City prior to the AFC Divisional Round. So, the Arrowhead Stadium field likely took some damage and needs to be replaced. It looks like that's going to happen before Sunday's game.

Kansas City and New England are set to kick off at 6:40 p.m. E.T.

The game will be televised on CBS.
