Temperature rises in NFC title game

Call it the NFL’s version of global warming. The NFC Championship Game in Glendale, Ariz., will be played in conditions that are 91 degrees warmer than last year’s NFC Championship Game in Green Bay.

The outdoor wind chill in Glendale is supposed to be 68 degrees today. When the NFC Championship Game kicked off last season in Green Bay, the temperature was minus-23 degrees with the wind-chill factored in.

That’s a 91-degree difference that is as dramatic a change as the climates in Arizona and Wisconsin.
