Climate experts say that Colorado is going to warm 13 degrees, which was the temperature at the start of the game.
The game-time temperature for the Broncos hosted the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC divisional playoffs was 13 degrees, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Jim Kalina, making it the coldest playoff game in Broncos history.
This is the second time in recent years when the missing heat has attacked Denver playoffs.

Well I have my own article on where the heck is global warming? We are asking that here in Boulder where we have broken records the past two days for the coldest days on record. We had 4 inches of snow. The high the last 2 days was below 30F and the normal is 69F, and it smashed the previous records for these days by 10F. The low was about 18F and also a record low, well below the previous record low. This is January weather (see the Rockies baseball playoff game was canceled on saturday and then played last night in below freezing weather).
The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t.
