Once upon a time, when the NFL Films' "Voice of God," John Facenda, intoned about "frozen tundra," it was a given that Lambeau Field was a playoff home-field advantage like no other. That would seem to be the case no more. Last weekend's Packers-Bears game at bitterly cold and blustery Soldier Field proved what Vince Lombardi could have never imagined. When it comes to facing Old Man Winter, these Packers are wimps. Even Brett Favre said as much. Chicago, with Kyle Orton at quarterback, manhandled NFC North champion Green Bay, 35-7, and the weather was a key factor.

I've been in some cold places, but the combination of arctic chill and wind in Green Bay was unbelievable. It hurt to walk to your car. So I was reminded of that as the Dallas Cowboys lost to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. The Cowboys and Packers are both 12-2, and Dallas still has the tie-breaker edge for the home field in the NFC playoffs. But Tony Romo's throwing thumb was hurt against the Eagles, Pro Bowl center Andre Gurode limped off, defensive end Chris Canty got a scare on a knee injury and safety Roy Williams is suspended for Saturday's game against Carolina for breaking his namesake rule, the horse-collar tackle, for the third time this season.

I've been checking the weather in Green Bay the past few days, thinking about the NFL playoffs. Two years ago almost to the day, I was there doing a story on how that charming little football hamlet, all decked out for the holidays, was talking about the prospect of the Packers finishing out of the playoffs for the first time in umpteen years. I've been in some cold places, but the combination of arctic chill and wind in Green Bay was unbelievable. It hurt to walk to your car.

Here's some advice from your friends here at O, by the Way. If you want to watch Thursday's game between the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys, both 10-1, at Texas Stadium, you might want to think about getting yourself to your favorite sports bar. Even though it's a prime-time game at 8:15 p.m. and the second most hyped game of the season - after the New England Patriots vs. Indianapolis Colts a few weeks back - it won't be carried over the air...

When he was general manager of the Green Bay Packers, Ron Wolf used to cringe when he saw the team doctor at his office door. More often than not, bad news was about to be delivered. "He might as well have been the Grim Reaper," Wolf says. "We invented the New England Journal of Sports Medicine in Green Bay." Injuries have always been a big part of football. In today's NFL, rife with roster-wrecking collisions, they have become even more important to a team's success or failure. After action today, 12 teams will have started at least two quarterbacks in the first six weeks of the season.

It would be easy to overreact to the San Diego Chargers' 1-2 start this season, easy to say that LaDainian Tomlinson is not the same back he was a year ago, that Philip Rivers has a long way to go, or that coach Norv Turner doesn't have what it takes. It also would be wrong. At least after three weeks. The Chargers just came out of the roughest opening schedule of any team in the NFL. They started against the Chicago Bears, traveled cross country to New England and yesterday played in Green Bay. They survived the quarterback-less Bears, were outcoached by the Patriots and outplayed by the Packers.

After last week's games, 24 NFL teams remained in the playoff hunt, including six teams that had top 10 picks in the 2006 draft: New Orleans Saints (No. 2), Tennessee Titans (3), New York Jets (4), Green Bay Packers (5), San Francisco 49ers (6) and Buffalo Bills (8). While only the Saints (9-5) are guaranteed a playoff berth or even a winning record, all six franchises have three common threads when it comes to their resurgences. Improved play at quarterback: Miami Dolphins coach Nick Saban's decision to trade for Daunte Culpepper instead of signing Drew Brees via free agency as New Orleans did looks worse every week.

N.Y. heats up on frozen tundra GREEN BAY, Wis. -- New York coach Eric Mangini showed his team a tape of the "Ice Bowl," and fullback B.J. Askew ran around shirtless in pre-game warmups to prove the cold wasn't so bad. Then Chad Pennington stoked the Jets' hopes of an improbable playoff run. Pennington put together three touchdown drives of 70 yards or more in the second quarter and the Jets cruised to a 38-10 win over Green Bay. "I just think we're...
