Packers-49ers' Playoff Game Might Be Coldest NFL Game Ever

The coldest game in NFL history, according to NFL.com, saw temperatures of minus 13 degrees with an obscene wind chill of 49 degrees below zero.

That game, the Ice Bowl, on December 31, 1967 was played on the same field that could see a new NFL record for coldest game.

As the Green Bay Packers prepare to exorcise some San Francisco 49ers demons, a team that has comfortably rolled over a porous Packers defense three times in the past 16 months, both teams are preparing for a different enemy: bitter cold.

While beautiful Green Bay, Wisconsin is forecast to welcome 25-degree weather on Saturday, the frozen tundra's thermometer's could plummet quicker than Jim Schwartz's promising head coaching mirage.

The Weather Channel is currently predicting minus 3 degrees—for a high—on Sunday. 

The low? Nineteen degrees below zero for Sunday evening. That mark would comfortably surpass the NFL Championship, aka The Ice Bowl, record of minus 13 degrees and become the coldest game in National Football League history.

Maybe Tom Coughlin's face will make a return to Lambeau Field.
