If you ever wondered why Lambeau Field is known as the Frozen Tundra, this is why.
When the Green Bay Packers welcome the Tennessee Titans to Lambeau Field for Sunday Night Football in Week 16, it will be a full-blown Wisconsin blizzard, forever reminding us all why this is the home of the Frozen Tundra.
If you cannot hear the Sam Spence soundtrack playing in your head right now, you need to get a grip and crank out some NFL Films YouTube videos stat. This game between the Packers and the Titans is a prime example of why NFL Films exists and why the NFL is such a tremendous television product. We will have two juggernauts going at it in snow in primetime. It is perfection.
Get ready for a Derrick Henry vs. Aaron Rodgers snow game
In the midst of the frozen precipitation, you will swear you saw the ghost of Vince Lombardi on the sidelines. With no fans in the stands against a team that used to be the Houston Oilers, there will be no Luv Ya Blue lost between him and Bum Phillips, who is also there in attendance. It will be a bunch of “What the hell’s going on out here?” with Derrick Henry running the power sweep.
The Packers quarterback will be a little more California cool than the late Bart Starr ever was, as Aaron Rodgers will get the terrible Titans pass-rush to jump offsides with a hard count before throwing a Hail Mary to end the half. Again, “What the hell’s going on out here?”
When Cris Collinsworth does this patented pre-game slide sponsored by Pro Football Focus, look for him to get a little further than expected, as
hell his chair has frozen over. The only way this game will be better is if we can get “Do you believe in miracles? Yes!” part deux out of the ageless Al Michaels. The man straight up refused to eat vegetables all his life just to call this masterpiece.
So if you have not been waiting all day for Sunday night, get ready for this epic snow game now.
