The National Weather Service forecasts a chance of rain, with wind around 15 mph and gusts up to 35 mph. Temperatures are expected to be in the 40s. Last season's matchup had similarly windy conditions, and the Broncos' offense was out of sync in the second half after building up a big lead. Bill Belichick doesn't put too much stock in early forecasts.
"If I did my job the way they do theirs, I'd be here about a week," Belichick said, never afraid to put meteorologists on blast. "Look, I'm not saying I could do it better than them, I'm just saying they're wrong a lot. That's a fact. They are wrong a lot. We all make mistakes. I'm not being critical of them. I'm just saying I don't think you go based on that."
Belichick says that a forecast two days before a game in New England is "almost always wrong" and you have to be ready for everything.
"Based on the forecasts that we have gotten so far this year, none of them were very close to what the game conditions were. There was a 100 percent chance of rain last week and the only water I saw was on the Gatorade table," Belichick said, via ESPNBoston.com.
