The Elite :-P
THE ICE BOWL

1967

The coldest and most mythical game in NFL history, “The Ice Bowl,” was the league’s 1967 Championship matchup between the Cowboys and Packers at Lambeau Field. Despite a wind chill of negative 48 degrees, over 50,000 Green Bay fans watched as the two-time defending champion Packers surged to a 14-0 lead on two touchdown passes by Bart Starr. But a defensive fumble return for a touchdown by the Cowboys’ George Andrie, followed by a Dallas field goal, made it 14-10, Green Bay, at the half. In the fourth quarter, the Tom Landry-coached Cowboys made it 17 unanswered points when Dan Reeves and Lance Rentzel connected on a 50-yard pass play. That set up perhaps the most iconic goal-line encounter ever in pro football: after Starr led the Packers down the frozen field, Green Bay had the ball less than a yard from the goal line with 16 seconds left. On third down, with no timeouts remaining, Starr scored on quarterback sneak to defeat the Cowboys, 21-17. The Packers would go on to win a 2nd straight Super Bowl title with their coach, Vince Lombardi.
