    , as the Green Bay Packers and Lambeau Field are simply
    something special when the temperature dips below freezing and the snow starts
    to fall.Forecasts for Sunday’s upcoming game against the Carolina Panthers
    currently sit with a high of 33 degrees Fahrenheit, sure to drop a bit before
    the 3:25 PM kickoff. Adding to the atmosphere may be some snow showers during
    the day, which makes this game ripe for a perfect afternoon for Packers
    football.APC’s contributors have had their share of experiences in cold and
    precipitation, and for this week’s Walkthrough, we asked our writers to share
    their favorite such game. Here’s what we came up with.Evan “Tex” Western: 2009
    Week 16 vs. SeahawksAs someone whose family did not have connections to Packers
    tickets when I was growing up, I have been to precious few Packers games in my
    lifetime, and only one was a true cold-weather game. That contest was a week 16
    game against the Seattle Seahawks in 2009, and my memories of that game are
    largely of the fun I had in attendance.The game itself was a blast because it
    was a blowout — the Packers won 48-10 with three touchdowns from Brandon
    Jackson, two from Ryan Grant (including a 56-yarder), and one from Ahman Green
    (!) in what would be his final game at Lambeau Field. Meanwhile, the defense
    picked off Matt Hasselbeck four times and sacked him three times, and Mason
    Crosby hit a 52-yard field goal despite temperatures in the teens and some
    flurries coming down. It was a good, old-fashioned demolition that saw the
    Packers leading 24-3 at halftime and 48-3 late, and it clinched a Wild Card
    playoff spot for Green Bay after a 6-10 season the year before.The tailgating
    for that game was tremendous as well, as three of my college friends and I drove
    up Friday night, staying at the home of one of their families close by, then
    getting out to the parking lots around the crack of dawn to get the day
    underway. From some tailgate football, featuring plenty of tackles into the
    massive snowbanks around the lot, to meeting a bunch of new friends in the
    parking stalls around

    , it was a fantastic day on all accounts Paul Noonan: November 6th,
    2000. Packers 26, Vikings 20I was at the snow globe game (which was, of course,
    perfect weather), and some very cold playoff games against the Giants, but this
    is the coldest I have ever been at a Packer game. It was a Monday Night, and
    temperatures plunged to just above freezing for kickoff, in an absolute
    torrential downpour for the entire game. And, of course, the weather played a
    very important part in this game. As Vikings kicker Gary Anderson lined up for a
    chip-shot 32-yard game winning field goal on first and 10 with seven seconds
    remaining, most fans headed for the exits. Anderson would end up 22/23 on the
    season, and historically he barely ever missed kicks of this distance. I
    remember whispering to my dad that while Anderson probably makes this, it’s so
    slippery and miserable that there’s at least some chance things go wrong. And
    boy did they go wrong. The snap slipped through Mitch Berger’s hands and rather
    than immediately spiking the ball, which would have allowed the Vikings another
    shot, he panicked and threw an errant pass that was picked off by Tyrone
    Williams. The Packers were still alive and the game went to overtime. Everyone,
    including quite a few Vikings fans, filtered back to their seats.Then in
    overtime, this happened.I’m still cold from this

    , but it was worth it. Matub: Packers/Vikings Christmas Eve
    2016“Wait, I remember that game,” you say after reading the title. “What an
    idiot Matub is, that was a perfect weather game!”Well, you’re right about one
    thing: I am an idiot. But that game was played during a weather oasis in an
    otherwise snow-riddled week. Leading up to the game, it was slightly above
    freezing and snowed to beat the band. I got into Green Bay in the afternoon of
    December 23rd, 2016. The first thing I did was stop at Shopko for a new shirt
    and some food. It was already snowing.By the time I got to Lambeau for the Hall
    of Fame and stadium tour, roads were nearly impassable. In fact, Lambeau looked
    like a snowglobe and I was worried about my wife’s comfort level the next day.
    She’s not exactly a trooper when it comes to the cold, especially when she’d
    have to stand out in it for 4 hours.Well, it turns out all my worrying was for
    naught. The team hired a bunch of locals to clear the snow and it was sunny and
    37 by kickoff. Getting to the stadium was a breeze and Mrs Matub stayed plenty
    warm after a couple two three Bailey’s Hot Chocolates.Oh, and the Packers kicked
    the ever loving snot out of the Vikings.Peter Bukowski: Packers-49ers 1997
    Divisional playoff game There was mud and rain and ice. It was a home playoff
    game against a West Coast team, a dynastic one at that, and the run game, with a
    little help from Desmond Howard got the Packers a win. It was old school Packers
    football. Not the most iconic cold weather performance you say? Not as cool as
    the snow globe game against the Seahawks in the 2007 playoffs (I, like Paul, was
    also there)? No iconic Favre moments or Reggie White dominance? You’d be right.
    But you know what this game did have? Nine-year-old me at his first-ever Lambeau
    Field experience. It was brutally, miserably cold and wet, but the Packers won
    and it was the start of the return to Titletown for Holmgren and the boys. Hot
    chocolate never tasted so damn good. Mike Vieth - January

    , 2004 Packers v. Seahawks Playoff GameLooking back on what
    the temperature was on paper, it doesn’t look that bad. It was 20 degrees with a
    wind chill of 6. Not too bad for January in Green Bay. Where it took a turn was
    where I was prior to the game. I was a student at the University of South
    Carolina at the time. The Friday before the game I got a call from my dad saying
    that he came across playoff tickets and asked if I wanted to go. The obvious
    answer came out of my mouth. So I quickly booked my tickets with a quick turn
    around as I had classes or work to get back to early the following week. From
    there came one of the coldest 48 hour periods of my life. I left the Charlotte
    airport on Saturday when the temperature was in the mid-70s. By the time I
    reached Green Bay, I didn’t think it was that bad but the 70 degree swing caught
    up to me quick. Being outside for tailgating and the game really turned bone
    chilling around halftime. That’s when I pulled out my phone to check any
    messages and realized my phone had gotten too cold to even turn on. As the game
    went on, beer slushies seemed to be the popular drink around the stands. The one
    thing keeping things from getting too bad was the excitement of the game. The
    Packers and Seahawks battled back and forth until the regulation ended with a
    tie score. Then the heat picked up.At the coin flip I never heard Matt
    Hasselbeck say “We want the ball and we’re gonna score.” I didn’t even realize
    he said it until I saw the highlights later that night but the warm and euphoria
    that filled the stadium when Al Harris made his pick-six made the whole
    experience worth it.I think I finally thawed out after getting off the plane
    back in Charlotte but this game goes down as not only the most memorable bad
    weather game I’ve been to but the most memorable game overall. GREEN BAY, Wis.
    (AP) — It can be difficult enough for NFL players to have just three days to
    prepare for a Thursday night game.The Green Bay Packers have another unique
    wrinkle in their schedule: they must fly west this year for their Thursday night
    matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.It didn’t leave much time for the Packers
    to wind down on Monday, a day after the 31-12 win over the Miami
    Dolphins.“You’ve got to take care of your body, make sure you’re doing the right
    things these next couple days to get ready,” defensive lineman Kenny Clark said.
    “Mentally, you just put your head in the film, get a chance to look at them
    early.”The abbreviated practice plans have the Packers (4-4-1) flying to Seattle
    on Tuesday night following what would be the most extensive practice of the
    week. Coaches did some preliminary preparation last week for the Seahawks,
    though the primary focus was on beating the Dolphins.That goal was accomplished,
    even as more injuries took a toll on the defense.Safety Kentrell Brice (left
    ankle), linebacker Nick Perry (knee) and Bashaud Breeland (groin) left the
    Dolphins game. They’re all starters, and another starter, cornerback Kevin King,
    missed the game with a hamstring injury.The defense bent but did not break,
    holding Miami to four field goals in spite of being put in some tricky
    situations. Two turnovers on special teams gave the Dolphins the ball at
    midfield or better. A failed fourth-and-2 for the offense had Miami starting at
    the Packers 45.The Dolphins managed just field goals each time, while the
    Packers kept scoring touchdowns.“We really played everybody that was up in our
    secondary, and everybody was ready when their number was
    called Aaron
    Rodgers Jersey
    , and they really made plays for us,” Breeland said after
    the game. He picked off Brock Osweiler deep in Miami territory and returned the
    ball to the 12 to set up a touchdown late in the third quarter.Breeland’s injury
    appeared to be relatively minor, and he hoped to be ready for Thursday.A
    positive for the Packers’ defense is that backups played fairly well to fill
    voids, including reserve safety Raven Greene. He had a sack and also took a
    direct snap on a fake punt for a 26-yard run.It’s a confidence-building win
    especially for a secondary that has had instability over the past few weeks,
    starting with the trade of starting safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to Washington.
    Another safety, Jermaine Whitehead, was released last week. Veteran cornerback
    Tramon Williams has started at safety alongside Brice the past couple of
    games.“It took everybody today, man. It was a good, team win,” Williams said
    Sunday.Green Bay eventually took advantage of backup Brock Osweiler, who was
    starting for a fifth straight game in place of the injured Ryan Tannehill. They
    got to Osweiler for six sacks. The Dolphins were just as banged up at receiver,
    too, losing Davante Parker and Jakeem Grant during the game.But Miami gets a bye
    this week to rest up.The Packers figure to take it easier in practice on
    Tuesday, which would probably have been the case regardless of all the injuries
    in their secondary.That puts a premium, then on the mental part of the game and
    preparation.“Full speed ahead. Some guys might try to click through the film
    last night,” McCarthy said. “A number of coaches just went right upstairs after
    the game … but as far as the team, we don’t have any time to spend on, we have
    to get right into Seattle.”
