Fans tough it out in bitter cold conditions at Lambeau Field Sunday

By  | 

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WEAU) - The Green Bay Packers season comes to a disappointing end, as the team fell to San Francisco in Sunday's playoff game.

We caught up with fans after the game. With temperatures dropping below zero, thousands of fans still flocked to the stadium to witness the Packers game. Now, a chance at the Super Bowl will have to wait another year.

"It doesn't matter who you are, where your from," said Chris Hoffman. It's still below zero. It affects every human. What it came down to was three points."

That is three points in just three seconds. It quickly turned hope into disappointment.

"I think the cold weather was even on both sides," said Trevor Kask of Pepin. "I thought it was in our side, but it just didn't work out that way."

"It was tough with all the injuries," Zach Flunker of Appleton. "The bottom line is we were one or two plays away from winning this game and going to the next round."

Weather may have affected both teams, but now fans can say they truly survived the "frozen tundra."

"I got my warmers and that was enough," Natalie Nightingale of Valparaiso, Indiana said. "My warmers were enough."

"Army bred!" exclaimed Andrew Powell of Watertown. "I did not go numb at all. I was ready for us, to win it but we did not."

Despite the loss, many fans say they will continue their love for the game, and their love for the Packers.

"They played their hearts out," Brooke Davis said. "They did the best they could. I will always love the Packers, no matter what the score is."

"I will be here next season," Kask said. "Go Pack Go! Shirt off all day, everyday. Every Sunday."
