    Haven't seen it discussed. Forecast of 94 degrees with 67% humidity. Heat Index of 120 degrees, higher if full sunshine. Some chance of showers, which sounds like it would be a huge blessing.

    Jags to wear their home teal and white. Surprised they’re doing that. Advantage Patriots.

    Why? White jerseys don’t retain heat as much.

    Benefits the Jags in theory due to their familiarity with it. Also, because it will be hard to build a big lead in this game given the defenses, fatigue in the 4th will be a factor.

    For some reason, I always think that the Pats play poorly in hot weather games. I wonder what their record is like when temps are >90?

    I've been in that stadium during day time games. Not fun. I scored free tickets from a friend a couple of years ago to see them play the Packers in Week 1. The temperature registered inside the bowl was 120. We could only stay in our seats for 15 minutes before we had to leave for the Bud Zone. I was completely drenched in sweat. The poor Cheese Heads from Wisconsin couldn't even take it for 5 minutes and a lot of them were being helped out by security with heat exhaustion/stroke. As we were walking to the Bud Zone, three Jags fans ran past us and one of them had a passed out girl in her hands who evacuated her bowels out of her shorts and onto the drink cart next to us and my girlfriend's hand/arm. Hope she ended up being okay.

    Patriots are one of the better conditioned teams in the league year in and year out, though. But that kind of heat and humidity will take a toll on you. I played high school ball in that in the swamps of South Florida and you never really get used to it.

    Yikes. We always have trouble in Miami early in the year; Jacksonville will probably be no different. I expect a low-scoring game and lots of players gassed by the middle of the game, particularly the Pats. Go D. (Now that I've said that out loud expect the game to be a high-scoring shoot out, as my last name should have been Murphy when I was born (I came close; I have cousins named Murphy)).

    At least in training camp there were some brutally hot and humid days. Maybe that will help a little.

    4:25 as opposed to 1:00 may help a little, but it'll be rough, for sure.

    Thunderstorms in the forecast throughout the day too so hopefully one blows through before the game.

    I remember in the 70's and 80's the pats would always loose in Miami and they always blamed the heat - although in reality, I don't know what the temps were.

    For some reason, I have this belief that when the Pats play in Miami early in the year, they do poorly - but when it is later, they do better. But again, I don't know if it is my selective memory or something real.

    Would love to win this game just in case of any tiebreaker scenario at the end of the season.

    As the head of the southern NH germophobe club, I hope that you promptly left your girlfriend at the stadium never to see her again.

    Nah. She's a beast though. Washed it off and went right back at it. She's a speech pathologist though and works with a lot of low-cog kids that do that stuff all the time. She's used to it (just not from a grown woman).
