NFL-Record low temperature possible for Bears game in Chicago (Reuters)

Frigid temperatures are forecast for a slew of National Football League games this weekend, and Sunday’s meeting between the Bears and Green Bay Packers in Chicago could set a bone-chilling record low. The Bears and Packers are scheduled to kick off at 1 p.m. ET (1800 GMT) at Soldier Field where the temperature is predicted to climb no higher than minus 16 Celsius (3 Fahrenheit). This week, the Chicago players have been trying to replicate Sunday’s likely temperatures during practice sessions, though coach John Fox felt it was impossible to ever get accustomed to Arctic-like weather for a league game.
