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.

By the numbers 2 Turnovers by the Ravens in the first quarter (fumble by Ray Rice and interception thrown by Joe Flacco). 3 Pass-interference penalties by the Ravens (Domonique Foxworth, Frank Walker and Lardarius Webb) in the first half. The Ravens' 11 pass-interference penalties are the most in the NFL this season. 15 The wind chill index at the opening kickoff at Lambeau Field. 17 First-half deficit by the Ravens, which tied their largest shortfall in any game this season (at Minnesota and at Cincinnati)

Carolina Panthers (13-4) at Green Bay Packers (14-3) Time: 12: 30 p.m. today, chs. 45, 5Line: Packers by 12Vs. spread: Panthers 13-4; Packers 11-6.Last week: In the conference semifinals, the Panthers beat the Cowboys in Charlotte, N.C., 26-17, and the Packers defeated the 49ers, 35-14, in Green Bay, Wis.Outlook: The Panthers did something Green Bay had tried to do the previous two years -- knock Dallas out of the playoffs. So the Packers have a great deal of respect for Carolina. They should, because the Panthers are one of the best teams the Packers have faced this season -- better than San Francisco and better than Dallas.

If I could give one bit of advice to the Ravens as they prepare to face the Green Bay Packers on Monday night at Lambeau Field, it would be: Stay close to those heated benches when you're not in the game. I say this because the temperature at game time is expected to be in the low 20s. There's also a good chance of snow. And because this is Lambeau in December, you can pretty much count on hitting the bad-weather trifecta. That's right: The wind should be blowing, too. Look, they don't call it "the Frozen Tundra" because people are slathering on Coppertone and wearing Hawaiian shirts.
