When the Dallas Cowboys and the Green Bay Packers met at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin, for the championship of the National Football League, the temperature was 14 degrees below zero (a steady 14-mph wind created windchills of -46·). But if the Cowboys were bothered by the cold, you couldnʹt tell from the way they were playing. A 50-yard option pass from halfback Dan Reeves to Lance Rentzel put them ahead 17-14, with just five minutes to play. Packers quarterback Bart Starr responded with a long drive that took his team to the Dallas one-yard line. There were 13 seconds left, and Green Bay had no more time-outs. Packers coach Vince Lombardi had already decided not to attempt a tying field goal. Overtime was unthinkable in this bitter cold. No, this game would come down to one last play. With each exhalation creating clouds around their helmets, the players pawed at the frozen ground, trying to gain purchase for their cleats.
