Perhaps, but you can play that game in other games in other years, too. Take the weather away from the Peyton/Brady playoff matchups in Foxboro and are the results the same? Who knows? It also seems that there was more wrong with the Pats on Sunday than just the weather. As TX pointed out yesterday, tackling was a problem. So was secondary coverage. Weather, good and bad, goes with the NFL territory. Always has.
