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.

With a game-time temperature of -15 (and a wind chill of -48), the Ice Bowl is said to be the coldest game in the NFL record books and given everything that will take place on Sunday, author David Maraniss decided he’d re-create the Ice Bowl with a live-tweet reenactment of the events surrounding the frigid game:

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.
