GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Sunday's playoff contest in Green Bay could be one of the coldest NFL games ever played, rivaling the subzero temperatures of the legendary Ice Bowl of 1967.

Temperatures at Lambeau Field are expected to be minus 2 degrees when the Packers and 49ers kick off and are expected to drop as the night goes on. At the so-called Ice Bowl, also in Green Bay, it got down to minus 13.

The Packers will give fans hand warmers, packets that fit inside gloves and stay warm for hours. They'll also provide coffee and hot chocolate.

Leon Perkins is a 49ers fan from temperate Stockton, Calif. He's going to the game and says he'll dress warmly and keep moving. He says the freezing temperature will make the game more memorable.
