John Brockington in a Frozen Met Stadium
Today we see Packers’ running back John Brockington (#42) about to collide with or elude the Vikings’ Paul Krause during a frozen game on December 10, 1972. The Packers beat Minnesota that day, 23-7, in front of 49,784 frigid fans in Metropolitan Stadium — where the “Mall of America” now stands. In zero degree temperatures, with a nine-mile-per-hour wind making it feel like minus-eighteen, Green Bay clinched the Division title for the first time since 1967.
