Tua Tagovailoa Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

From growing up in Hawaii, playing college football with the Alabama Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and now playing with the Miami Dolphins, Tua Tagovailoa does not have a ton of experience playing in extremely cold weather. But he’s going to have to do it this week.

This week’s playoff game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Miami Dolphins will be played in some jarringly chilly conditions with the wind chill reaching below zero. It will undoubtedly be the coldest conditions Tua Tagovailoa has played in, but it sounds like he’s ready, believing that “the whole thing is a mindset.”

“I think it’s just a feel of how everything is, what the ball feels like, what throwing feels like, what holding the ball feels like, if there’s wind, if there’s not wind, you have to take all those things into consideration,” Tagovailoa said according to Pro Football Talk. “But we’ll go there, we’ll test it out and we’ll see what we have to do as far as adjusting or not.”

We’ll have to see how Tagovailoa performs in what will certainly be the coldest weather he has ever played in any whether or not he is still as effective of a passer.
