7:18 am
who can withstand the elms. both playing in a big game. you think about games of this nature the first thing you're concerned with as a coach for the players is their feet and hands, keeping those things warm and then the balls. the balls have to be warm for the kickers obviously and the quarterback so you can't heat them with any heaters but that becomes a part of the process. along with the wind conditions. is it wet and is it windy or just windy or just dry and cold? so these are the conditions you have to play in especially in playoff atmosphere and it's outside, both teams. no one gets any edge on that. it's just mental toughness and obviously ball security. >> yeah no one gets the advantage. we have to start thinking of names. we've seen the freezer bowl and ice bowl. let's go back today. you once coached the chiefs playing the texans. who do you like in the gamy. >> i like the chiefs. i like the roll they're on. both these teams are built the same way. lost their running backs earlier but found a way chiefs being, what with two wins houston with two wins and find a way winning the division the chiefs
7:19 am
have won ten in a row now so i think the key is alex smith. he is actually the only quarterback in the playoffs with all the quarterbacks that has not turned the ball over. he's been in three playoff games. he's thrown nine touchdown, zero interceptions. this defense of the chiefs takes the ball away 119 points scored off takeaways. i think the chiefs find a way to win the game. i think it will be a fabulous football game. both built the same way with good defenses and it's not going to be a high-scoring affair at all. >> enjoy the games from inside that the warm studios, coach. particularly tomorrow's game. thanks for joining us this morning. reminder you can watch them starting at 4:20 in afternoon on both abc and espn and this is pretty big because it's our first nfl game in ten years. >> it's awesome, man. speaking of to indra petersons good morning, indra. >> have you ever seen golf ball-size hail? how about like tennis ball-size hail. >> no manage you. >> it's dangerous. that's when they saw outside houston. you know when the national
