The Packers-49ers playoff game Sunday in Green Bay didn't set the record for being the coldest in NFL history, but if you were among those who had endure the elements at Lambeau Field, you probably don't care. It was still downright frigid: 5 degrees at kickoff with a wind chill of minus-10.

Like the classic 1967 Ice Bowl in Green Bay, which was the coldest in league history at minus-13 degrees, this one came down to the final seconds. Phil Dawson kicked a 33-yard field goal as time expired to lift the 49ers to a 23-20 win.

Forecasts earlier in the week had called for a high of minus-5, a low of minus-20 and a wind chill of minus-51.
