On the final day of 1967, the Ice Bowl became one of the most iconic games in football history as temperatures dipped to an NFL-record low 13-below zero in Green Bay and the expression “frozen tundra” became synonymous with Lambeau Field. The Packers beat the Dallas Cowboys, winning the NFL title and advancing to the Super Bowl on a quarterback sneak by Bart Starr with mere seconds left as Jerry Kramer pushed Jethro Pugh out of the way.

It now appears that it will not be colder when the Packers host a wild-card playoff game late Sunday afternoon, David Maraniss, author of “When Pride Still Mattered: A Life of Vince Lombardi,” recaptures the game and its aftermath in Part 2 of his Twitter stream.
