Saturday’s playoff matchup between the Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots is going to be a cold one — with temperatures in the single-digits and sub-zero wind chill.

Josh Allen has not had a whole lot of success in cold-weather games in his career, but former NFL linebacker Bart Scott has a rather, um, unique suggestion:

Take some Viagra.

Scott, a regular on ESPN’s “Get Up,” appeared on the show Thursday when the discussion turned to how Allen gets “bad circulation” and his feet go numb while playing in these elements.

“May I make a suggestion for him?” Scott asked. “Vi-a-gra. Take some Viagra before the game, baby. That’ll get that circulation going right.”

Host Mike Greenburg and reporter Dianna Russini did not know how to respond to Scott’s suggestion, so he elaborated.

“A lot of [NFL players] take Viagra, right? Because Viagra opens up the blood vessels,” Scott said. “A lot of NFL players, at least in my day, took Viagra because it opens up the blood vessels. … Viagra was first a heart medicine, right? It builds up circulation, which makes sure it gets circulation to the feet.”

Fellow analyst and former NFL player Damien Woody could not stop laughing as Scott was talking, but the former Jet and Ravens star assured he was being totally serious.

“I swear, I’m not trying to be funny,” he said.

Russini added that based on her conversation with Allen, he probably won’t be doing that, but will opt for a space heater on the sidelines instead.

While Viagra may indeed get the blood flowing, a space heater is probably the more comfortable route.
