The Packers host San Francisco Sunday during Wild Card Weekend of the NFC playoffs.  Kickoff is set for 3:40 p.m.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers are finding ways to help fans warm up for an expected bone-chilling playoff game Sunday against San Francisco.

The team will provide free coffee and hot chocolate to fans. The hot drinks will be available at most concession stands throughout Lambeau Field.

The Packers also plan to pass out 70,000 hand warmers, packets that fit inside gloves or boots and stay warm for hours.

Temperatures are expected to be a frigid minus 2 degrees when the Packers and 49ers kick off at 3:40 p.m. Central time.

The game could be one of the coldest in NFL history, rivaling the subzero temperatures of the 1967 Ice Bowl in Green Bay.
