Jerry Kramer on big games in cold weather.
On December 31, 1967, Green Bay Packers right guard Jerry Kramer took out Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Jethro Pugh, allowing the Packers’ Bart Starr to score on a quarterback sneak. The play snatched the NFL Championship out of the hands of the Dallas Cowboys.
That game remains the coldest game ever played in the NFL and has come to be called the “Ice Bowl.”
On the eve of Super Bowl XLVIII, Jerry Kramer talked with Bill Coates about playing big football games in cold weather.
