The Detroit Lions are one of the few NFL teams who play in an indoor stadium, and as such, there are those who think that automatically puts them at a disadvantage against the elements.
One such person is Earl Thomas, who just happens to be a free safety for the Seattle Seahawks, who the Lions will battle in the Wild Card playoff game Saturday night. Thomas recently took to Twitter to share his thoughts about playing the Lions in a cold weather game.
I hope it's freezing cold when we play Detriot, they are a dome team that's probably not use to the cold elements. Let it snowwwww or ☔️!

According to weather.com, the Saturday forecast is for a high of 38 degrees and a 40 percent chance of precipitation. The Lions went 0-3 outdoors this season.
It’ll be up to the Lions to silence Thomas and the rest of the Seahawks. Can they cope with the cold weather?
