Throwback Thursday: Rare Photos From Cowboys-Packers "Ice Bowl" At Lambeau

In honor of the popular social media trend "Throwback Thursday," and in preparation for Sunday's game in Green Bay, let's look back a few decades for this week's installment of "TBT."

For the first time since the 1967 NFL Championship Game, the Cowboys and Packers return to Lambeau Field for a playoff game.


But while Sunday's NFC Divisional Playoff showdown should be quite a matchup, considering both teams went 12-4 in the regular season and the Cowboys are 8-0 on the road and Green Bay is 8-0 at home, it'll be difficult to match the historical significance that came from their last postseason meeting at Lambeau.

Known simply as the "Ice Bowl," the game-time temperatures were around -15 degrees with a wind-chill in the range of -50 below.

The Packers jumped out to a 14-0 lead but the Cowboys rallied for 17 unanswered points. But in the end, Green Bay drove the field in the final minutes and Hall of Fame quarterback Bart Starr won the game on a 1-yard sneak with just 13 seconds remaining, giving the Packers their second straight championship win over the Cowboys.
