"If you're talking about an advantage and hanging onto the football, Brady has huge hands."

Gary Tanguay and Kirk Minihane are on Arbella Early Edition to discuss the role the elements will play in Saturday's tilt between the Patriots and Colts. 

"We always talk about weather, coming to new England and how it can be a big advantage for the Patriots," says Tanguay. "I don't think it's going to be more of an advantage for the Patriots tomorrow night as opposed to the Colts."

Heavy rain is possible during the game, with windy conditions and temperatures in the mid-50s. 

While that does figure to play to the Patriots' strengths, it doesn't figure to throw Andrew Luck off his game. 

"This guy can play in any condition," says Minihane. "He's already graduated in my mind to that elite status, to that top status, and it's only going to go further obviously if he can somehow pull out this game tomorrow night."

Unlike many dome quarterbacks, Andrew Luck's splits show he was actually a better outdoor quarterback this season, throwing for more yards per game, a better touchdown-to-interception ration, and a better quarterback rating in outdoor games.

Gary Tanguay predicts a 38-31 Patriots victory, and it all comes down to one thing - Brady's hands.
 
"Brady's got a bigger hand, that's why they'll win in the rain. If you're talking about an advantage and hanging onto the football, Brady has huge hands."
