With football Sunday several days away, it’s time to take a Tuesday look back at Green Bay Packers history – and what better way to begin this weekly series than by kicking it off with the greatest of great games in not only Packers history, but probably the biggest in National Football League history.
With apologies to those traditionalists who still feel the 1958 NFL Championship game between the New York Giants and Baltimore Colts is the Greatest Game Ever Played, I still feel The Ice Bowl is the most well known and honored. It was the elements, the teams, the venue and its iconic value to the league that defines its greatness.
And in celebration of its importance to every football fan, we bring you this NFL Films look at the game that features the likes of just about every principal character involved in that game. From the late great Ray Scott and Steve Sabol, to the players who endured the most brutal conditions to play the biggest football game of that year and one that many, including myself, will consider it the defining moment of the league’s and the team’s history.
So, take a look and enjoy this masterful piece by NFL Films …
