FOXBORO - Bill Belichick warned on Friday that we could be in for "football weather" for the contest 48 hours later against Tennessee. He wasn't kidding. Belichick usually hesitates against warning his players against bad weather but there was no such concern on Sunday. All his players had to was walk through the tunnel and onto the field for proof. The Nor'Easter that flew up the eastern seaboard walloped New England on Sunday afternoon. Temperatures were expected around 40 degrees at 4:15 p.m. but the 35-40 MPH wind gusts along with driving rain and snow certainly made it feel colder than that. Both teams got out on the field and worked out to try and get accustomed to the bad conditions. The slush began accumulating at about 3:30 and continued through kickoff.
