The Latest: Rams, Broncos bracing for frigid day in Denver
The Latest on the NFL's Week 6 (all times EDT):
A snow game in October? No time for cold feet.
The Los Angeles Rams and Denver Broncos will definitely be playing it cool Sunday with the temperature in the Mile High City at kickoff expected to be around 25 degrees. The forecast is calling for flurries into the afternoon.
The field was covered by a tarp hours before the game on a day that reminded everyone in town that ski season is right around the corner.
As far as coldest games in Denver history, it doesn't come close to making the list. The most frigid game in the city was Dec. 10, 1972, against San Diego when it was 9 degrees. Last season, Denver hosted Kansas City on Dec. 31 when it was 17 degrees.
The Rams can take some cold comfort in this: It's 65 degrees back in Los Angeles.

New York Jets defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers, dealing with an illness, is with the team for its game against the Indianapolis Colts.
The Jets tweeted out a photo of Rodgers standing next to coach Todd Bowles on the field at MetLife Stadium on Sunday and announced that "Coach Rodgers is in the house!"
It was not certain if Rodgers would be in his usual role of running the Jets' defense during the game, or if Bowles would do so as he did last week in New York's 34-16 win over Denver.
The 49-year-old Rodgers is dealing with what Bowles has called a "serious" illness. Rodgers had a medical appointment on Oct. 4 and was not with the team for practice the following day, when a somber Bowles revealed that Rogers was dealing with an illness.
Rodgers has not been at practice since. Bowles said Rodgers would find out the results of tests sometime in the next few days.

Seattle faces the Oakland Raiders in Wembley Stadium on Sunday for the NFL's first London game of the season, and the Seahawks' first regular-season appearance overseas.
Pete Carroll will be looking to break a tie with Mike Holmgren (90) as the winningest coach in Seahawks franchise history, and Russell Wilson is 25-6 after a loss for Seattle (2-3) — for the best record for a quarterback since the merger.
The Raiders (1-4) have struggled in Jon Gruden's return to coaching, especially on defense since trading star pass rusher Khalil Mack just before the start of the season. Oakland's defense is ranked 30th, has the fewest QB pressures (29), is tied for the fewest sacks (six) and the third-fewest takeaways (five).
The biggest matchup of the day is the prime-time meeting involving Tom Brady and the New England Patriots (3-2) hosting the Kansas City Chiefs (5-0) and their young quarterback sensation Patrick Mahomes.
