Ravens tight end Maxx Williams took the field for pre-game warm-ups without a shirt before Sunday’s regular-season finale.
Even for a Minnesota native, that’s crazy.
Today’s game marks the coldest home game in Ravens franchise history. The temperature at kickoff was 19 degrees with a wind chill that made it feel like 10 degrees.
The previous coldest game was the Ravens’ 2000 wild-card game on Dec. 31, which ended in a 21-3 victory over the Denver Broncos.
That game had a temperature of 22 degrees at kickoff with a wind chill of 5 degrees.
On Friday, Head Coach John Harbaugh was asked his strategy for dealing with the cold temperatures.
“I try to store fat – as much fat between now and the game time as possible,” he joked.
