We've already told you that the NFC Wild Card contest at TCF Bank Stadium on Sunday between the Minnesota Vikings and the Seattle Seahawks is going to be one of the coldest in NFL history. The only question now is where it's going to rank on the list.

So that we can more easily figure that out later on, here is the list of the ten coldest games in the history of the National Football League, including temperatures and wind chill factors. Temperatures are listed in degrees Fahrenheit.

Date Location Teams Temperature Wind Chill
31 December 1967 Green Bay, WI Dallas Cowboys at Green Bay Packers -13 -48
10 January 1982 Cincinnati, OH San Diego Chargers at Cincinnati Bengals -9 -59
