WBZ Water Cooler: Could High-Altitude Affect Patriots-Broncos Outcome?
BOSTON (CBS) — At the WBZ Water Cooler – The Patriots and Broncos are ready to square off in the AFC Championship, so what will that thin air do to the Pats who obviously aren’t used to playing a mile above sea level?
For the answer to that, we talked with a meteorologist who grew up in Denver. She says the Pats will indeed struggle with breathing a bit and they will need to hydrate! Don’t forget if this game comes down to a field goal, the range for kickers gets a bit longer because of that thin air.
