It’s ridiculously cold, but Odell Beckham Jr. and Ryan Shazier still went shirtless

You know what they say about the cold . . . the key is to keep your head and hands covered.

Maybe Ryan Shazier, the Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker, was testing that theory during warmups (unintentional pun) for the wild-card game against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. The temperature in Pittsburgh was 14 degrees, 1 if you factor in the wind chill, and yet Shazier felt no need for a shirt, only knit headgear and gloves.

He did wear a jersey in the game.

Meanwhile in Green Bay, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. somehow managed to wear less clothing on the field than he did on the infamous party-boat, off-day trip to Miami with the rest of the team’s receivers.

Sadly, they were not wearing their Timberlands.
