Patriots girding for heat in Miami

FOXBOROUGH -- Patriots coach Bill Belichick was bundled up in a heavy jacket before Friday’s practice, but the team was going to spend its final on-field preparation day for Sunday’s game at Miami inside the heated bubble.

The Patriots were outside for practices on Wednesday and Thursday, with the temperatures in the low to mid 30s. Sunday’s forecast in Miami is for a high of 78 with a 30 percent chance of rain. Does it help, then, to get out of the cold and practice in a hotter environment, if that’s what you’ll encounter on Sunday?
