 GREEN BAY - It may not have been as cold as the famed 'Ice Bowl', but some fans who attended the Green Bay Packers wildcard game said it felt that way.

The single digit temperatures forced even the toughest Packers fans to bundle up and dress in layers.

Free hand warmers, coffee and hot chocolate were handed out to keep fans warmed up.

Zachary Zimmerman said he felt ok up until halftime, that's when the bone chilling cold set in.

"The feet warmers were still working , everything else was still working, I’m not even sure I have toes right now, I’m just hoping they're still there" said Zimmerman.

The dangerously cold temperatures forced officials at Lambeau Field to ease security for the wildcard game.

Fans were allowed to bring in sleeping bags and blankets to stay warm.
