The Ice Bowl

December 31, 1967
Lambeau Field, Green Bay
NFL Championship
Green Bay (21) over Dallas (17)

Frigid temperatures (-13 F, wind chill -46) and a frozen underground heating system at Lambeau lead to an icy surface. The Packers took an early 14-0 lead, but the Cowboys got back into the game thanks to two Packer turnovers, shrinking the Packer lead to 14-10 at the half. The Cowboys took a 17-14 lead late in the game on a Dan Reeves halfback option pass. But the Packers answered the bell, as Bart Starr provided the winning score on a quarterback sneak behind blocks by Jerry Kramer and Ken Bowman with just 13 seconds remaining.
