New, comments

How cold was it? Really, Really cold.

Every week, the NFL Network holds a "Fans' Choice" vote, where the winner will be featured in the Saturday night lineup. This week, the NFL Network has chosen "Classic Games" as it's category, and the 1981 AFC Championship Game between the San Diego Chargers and Cincinnati Bengals has been chosen for the vote.

This Saturday, March 30, at 8 p.m., the NFL Network will celebrate the game that won the most fan votes.

1981 AFC Championship Game: Chargers vs. Bengals

The "Freezer Bowl" in Cincinnati's Riverfront Stadium was minus-9 degrees Farenheit, with a wind chill, factoring in a sustained wind of 27 miles per hour, of minus-37 degrees for the 1981 AFC Championship Game. The San Diego Chargers entered the game as heavy favorites, but saw the elements neutralize their high-octane attack in a 27-7 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

No. 4 bad weather game
