CHICAGO — History could be made at today’s Bears game against the Green Bay Packers, and not for what’s happening on the field.

The temperature at Soldier Field is expected to top out at just 4 degrees, come game time.

With the wind chills, it will be closer to 15 or 20 degrees below zero.

When all is said and done, today could become the coldest game ever held at Soldier Field.

It also has the potential of becoming one of the NFL’s ten coldest games ever played.

The coldest game in the league’s history also involved the Packers.

It was at Lambeau Field back in 1967, when it was 13 degrees below zero.

That game is referred to as “The Ice Bowl.”
