With a high temperature projected in the low single digits, and the low well below zero, Sunday’s NFC wild-card playoff game against San Francisco will be one of the coldest games in franchise history.
Where will it rank? Well, since the Packers began recording official game temperatures in 1959, only two games have featured a kickoff temperature below zero — the Ice Bowl, of course, at minus-13, and the 2007 NFC Championship, at minus-1.
Two other games in team history — one home, one away — were at zero.
Back in the spring of 2011, packers.com compiled this list of the 10 coldest games in franchise history, based on the recorded kickoff temperature. No games played since this list was compiled — until Sunday — have cracked the list.
