The Packers gave out 70,000 handwarmers to help keep fans at Lambeau Field warm on Sunday, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. The organization was also offering two free cups of coffee or hot chocolate to fans during the game.
The San Francisco 49ers were in Green Bay for a wild-card showdown with the Packers on Sunday. Temperatures are expected to drop as low as negative-20 degrees in Green Bay on Sunday night, which could have a major impact on the game.
