On Sunday afternoon, the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers will play in one of the coldest games in NFL history. Only six games have been played in sub-zero temperatures (non wind-chill) with the coldest being the 1967 Ice Bowl which featured the Dallas Cowboys and the aforementioned Packers playing for the NFL Championship.

Maraniss stopped his tweeting today but will continue on Sunday with the actual play-by-play of the game.
A pretty interesting look back at one of the most famous NFL games from eyes and ears that were actually in attendance.
