This is going to be a toasty one down in Arlington come Sunday. With a 3:25 pm CST kickoff, you can expect it to be the thick of the heat. Not much cloud cover, not much break with the wind. That is the tailgating forecast.
Inside AT&T Stadium it feels like the type of day they may open the roof and the end zone windows while also keeping it climate-controlled to the best of their ability. That can only keep things so cool when there are 100,000 fans inside.
The heat could show up in this game should there be long drives creating tired defenses stuck on the field. The Cowboys would be wise to run the ball, chew clock, protect Rush from having to sling it, and ensure their defense is rested.
