FOXBORO -- For the third straight day Bill Belichick was asked about the cold weather in Kansas City for this weekend's AFC title game, and once again he shot it down.

Here's how it went, which opened his Wednesday press conference:

Q: How does the cold weather impact preparations for Sunday's game?

Belichick: "Yeah, we’re getting ready for the Chiefs. Whatever it is it is."

Q: Do you mind playing in cold weather?

Belichick: "I’d love to play in a championship game. Schedule it wherever you want. We’ll be there."

Earlier in the week, temperatures were expected to be around zero at kickoff, but now they are expected to be in the mid-teens (of course, this could change again).

For what it's worth, Tom Brady is 5-1 for his career in games 20 degrees or less.
