There is nothing more fun than watching football.

Regardless of what team you root for, everyone has their weekly traditions during the season.

My wife and I always wear our Jersey's and head over to the Sawmill in Seaside Heights for some beers, and pizza and to watch the chaos unfold each week.

What's really interesting about football in my opinion is that it takes a lot to cancel or postpone a game.

The NFL will play come rain, sleet, wind, snow, or freezing temperatures.

In fact, this upcoming wildcard weekend will feature some pretty serious cold temperatures.

When the Dolphins travel to Arrowhead Stadium this Saturday to play the Chiefs, the temperature that night is supposed to be somewhere around negative five degrees!

Talk about cold.

That though, isn't even the coldest game in NFL history.

One Of The Coldest Games In NFL History Was Played By The NY Giants

You may remember the Ice Bowl of 1967, when the Packers played to Cowboys in temperatures as low as -13 degrees, with windchills that made it feel like -48.

Joe Mason, of the APP, reports that the Giants also played one of the coldest games in NFL history.

It wasn't that long ago either!

APP reports that in 2008 the Giants were facing off against the Packers in order to try and make it to the Superbowl and they were playing in temperatures as low as -4 degrees, with windchills that made it feel like -24 degrees!

The Giants ended up winning against the Packers and then going on to beat the Patriots and win the 2008 Superbowl.

As much as I love football, I'll watch in the comfort of a bar before watching a game in freezing temperatures thank you very much.
