|It's so windy that the goal posts at the practice fields at Gillette Stadium are swaying.|
The last two times the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens met, the fate of the game was decided by a field goal. The teams might want to try to avoid that today, as it is very windy in Foxborough today. From NFL.com:
The kickers in Sunday's AFC Championship Game between the Baltimore Ravens and the New England Patriots better hope a trip to the Super Bowl doesn't hinge on a long field-goal attempt in the final moments. The winds are swirling in Foxborough, Mass.
Winds whipped Gillette Stadium at 18 miles per hour at 3 p.m. ET, and Weather.com forecasts gusts up to 36 mph for the game. The Patriots tweeted a photo of the practice-field goalposts being bent in the wind.
Let's hope that today's game outcome isn't left in the hands of the kickers.
