Packers-Bears was so cold, the players' helmets cracked

I’m freezing just thinking about it.

This NFL Sunday was a particularly cold one. So cold, some of the equipment couldn’t quite withstand the temperatures.

The decals and paint were flaking right off the helmets! Chicago was cold Sunday, but had they been playing at Green Bay, things would have been just as bad if not worse, with a windchill right around the same temperature.

Nothing like cold weather football! Players will have to watch their helmets as temperatures only sink further into the season and postseason.
