Getting warmer: Pats-Chiefs forecast improves

Instead of temperatures in the single digits and below zero, as had been earlier forecast, they will be in the 20s for the AFC title game between the Patriots and Chiefs.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Safety Eric Berry is completing a full practice week for the Chiefs Friday, giving him an excellent chance of playing in Sunday's AFC championship game against the Patriots at Arrowhead Stadium. Regarding Berry's potential to impact the game, Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton said, “He has great speed and range. I think he's our most physical football player. So when you have those qualities you have playmaking ability (and) you have a chance to affect the game. The one thing about speed on defense is that it isn't always the plays you make it's sometimes the plays you prevent. He has that ability in him. The other part of it that he brings is the players respond to him. They appreciate all he's been through and what he's done here and what kind of player he is.''
