Kick-off time temps at Green Bay's Lambeau Field are expected to be a blistering minus 2 degrees when the Packers and 49ers meet for a NFL playoff game at 3:40 p.m. Central Time. AP is reporting that "by the fourth quarter it'll be a bone-chilling minus 7, with wind chills approaching minus 30," according to the National Weather Service.

Back in 1967, when the Packers beat Dallas to move on to Super Bowl II in the famous "Ice Bowl," the temperatures got as cold as minus 13 degrees with a wind chill of minus 46.

Frostbite and hypothermia are normally real matters of concern at temperatures like the ones predicted for Sunday.

AP also reports that the Packers are planning to distribute 70,000 hand warmers, packets that fit inside gloves or boots and stay warm for hours. The team also plans to offer free coffee and hot chocolate. FULL STORY
