When a wave of winter weather hit the Dallas-Fort Worth area on Christmas Day, the Dallas Cowboys got a small taste of the conditions they’ll likely see in the open air of FedEx Field, when they take on the Redskins with the NFC East crown on the line on Sunday night.
According to ESPN Dallas, the temperature in Landover, Maryland on Sunday night will be between 35 and 27 degrees--and it’s worth keeping in mind that the game was flexed to primetime earlier this week, meaning that 27 is more likely than 35.
In any case, head coach Jason Garrett said this week that his team will be be prepared for the cold.
“It starts with the guys back in the equipment room, making sure we get the right gloves and cleats,” Garrett said. “Making sure all the gear is right. We’ll tell guys to get out there early and get comfortable with what they’re wearing for the ballgame and just go. Ultimately, you don’t want your equipment to beat you. You want to make sure your equipment is right so you can focus on playing and coaching football.”
