GREEN BAY, Wis. (January 3, 20140 The playoff Sunday in Green Bay, Wis., between the Packers and the 49ers could be one of the coldest NFL games ever played, rivaling the subzero temperatures of the legendary Ice Bowl of 1967.
Temperatures at Lambeau Field are expected to be minus 2 degrees when the Packers and 49ers kick off and are expected to drop as the night goes on.
The temperature dropped to minus 13 during the 1967 championship game between Dallas and Green Bay, which the Packers won 21-17.
The Packers will give fans hand warmers, packets that fit inside gloves and stay warm for hours and will provide coffee and hot chocolate.
Leon Perkins, a 49ers fan from temperate Stockton, Calif, is going to the game.
He says he’ll dress warmly and keep moving.
He said the freezing temperature will make the game more memorable.
