Those temperatures aren’t great for the players on the field, but the league is also responsible for looking out for their customers–the fans. The NFL is already planning to agitate Chiefs and Dolphins fans during the game, as the digital streaming platform Peacock

According to Andy Slater with Fox Sports 640, the league will not make a schedule change for the Wild Card matchup despite the reportedly dangerous conditions expected in Kansas City Saturday night.

The wind chill in Kansas City Saturday night will be “dangerously cold,” the National Weather Service says.

The latest forecast approaches a wind chill of -30 degrees.

The league has moved games to alternate stadiums because of weather before. In fact, there are plans in place this week to potentially move the Wild Card matchup between the Buffalo Bills and Pittsburgh Steelers to Cleveland because of the dangerous weather conditions heading to New York.

The league should consider doing the same in Kansas City. The Chiefs have worked hard this season to earn a home playoff game. The league should respect that. But putting players and fans in harm’s way due to extremely frosty temperatures crosses a line where the NFL should step in.
