Titans Take On Packers At 'Frozen Tundra' Sunday

Posted: Updated:

GREEN BAY, WI – The Titans will have to deal with a Green Bay Packers team that's a legitimate Super Bowl contender, as well as the frigid weather at Lambeau Field.

The "Frozen Tundra" known as Lambeau has been living up to it's name. Green Bay residents volunteered Friday to help clear the stadium after 10 inches of snow fell overnight.

Thanks to their efforts, snow won't be a factor for the Titans and Packers Sunday, but frigid temperatures will be.

The temperature on the field at kickoff has been forecast for the low 20s. It will be the coldest game many of the Titans have suited up for in quite a while.

"I played there when it was cold my rookie year. Of course, cold is cold," said wide receiver Nate Washington. "It's just going to take a lot more focus – a lot more dedication to the game to fight through those conditions."

Safety Jordan Babineaux said it's hard to game plan for cold weather.

"I don't think you can ever prepare for the elements," said Babineaux. "I've had some ball games at Lambeau Field in early January with all my years in Seattle, so… it's going to be cold, man. There's no way around it."

Some Titans said they were looking forward to playing in the snow.

"I love the cold weather. I get better in the months of November and December each year, so I love playing in the snow and cold games," said receiver Kenny Britt.

Despite historically cold games – and the fact the stadium hold more people than the population of Green Bay – Lambeau Field has been sold out for every game since 1960.

The Packers have one of the best home-field advantages in all of football, winning an NFL-best 76 percent of their games since 1992.

The 10-4 Packers have not lost at home in November or December since 2008.

Tennessee (5-9) is hoping to avoid a 10th loss of the season. The team's last 10-loss season was in 2010. The Titans haven't been to the playoffs since 2008.

Kickoff is set for noon central time. The game can be seen in Nashville on NewsChannel5.
