Cowboys vs Packers — Is It The Ice Bowl Part 2?
This Sunday morning the Dallas Cowboys will play the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs.
The game is being billed as the Ice Bowl part 2 due to the fact that this will be the first time that the Cowboys will play the Packers in Green Bay in the playoffs since the historic 1967 NFL Championship game in which the Packers won 21-17.
Things will be a little different this time around. First of all, the temperature was a very chilly negative 20 degrees in 1967, and in Sunday's game, the temp will get up to 20 degrees. Don't get me wrong, it's gonna be cold but not as cold as in 1967.
Second of all, Lambeau field won't freeze like it did in 1967 as the field is now heated.
What will be the same is that there will be 2 iconic teams facing off in a historic stadium and are hoping to move on to the next round of the playoffs. Also they both feature 2 high profile quarterbacks in Aaron Rodgers and Tony Romo. Both teams also have explosive offensives so I'm looking for this to be a high scoring game. So the team that's gonna win is the one that plays the best defense.
The Packers won the first Ice Bowl and here's hoping that the Cowboys win the second.
You can listen to the Cowboys/ Packers game on 600 ESPN El Paso at 11 am this Sunday morning.
