A New England fan makes his way to U.S. Bank Stadium for Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis on Sunday. The game time temperature outside the stadium was 2 degrees, making it the coldest game in Super Bowl history.

While the temperature outside U.S. Bank Stadium was a balmy 2 degrees at kickoff, it hovered at or below zero for most of the day with wind chills up to 25 below. That easily made it the coldest Super Bowl in history.
