Charlotte, NC (FOX 46) - Despite a poor record and falling temperatures, fans still made their way to the tailgate fields to support their Carolina Panthers.
Long sleeves, gloves and heaters were among the things keeping tailgaters warm outside of Bank of America Stadium on Sunday.
The chilly temps didn't deter fans as they understand things could be worse.
"The cold here is nothing compared to what Green Bay fans are experiencing. This is nothing," one fan said.
Others tell say they've been part of games with nastier weather, including last year's NFC Championship game.
