previous time the Bengals played the San Diego Chargers in a postseason game,
Cincinnati players braved the coldest wind chill (minus-59) in NFL history to
punch the Bengals' ticket to Super Bowl XVI.
This Sunday, a number of those
Bengals players from the Jan. 10, 1982 "Freezer Bowl" at Riverfront Stadium
will be at Paul Brown Stadium, to be honored on the field just before kickoff
of the Bengals-Chargers AFC Wild Card game, presented by Fifth Third
Freezer Bowl alumni scheduled to be present are Ken Anderson, Jim Breech, Louis
Breeden, Glenn Bujnoch, Cris Collinsworth, Tom Dinkel, Archie Griffin, Ray
Griffin, M.L. Harris, Robert Jackson, Pete Johnson, Anthony Munoz, Rick Razzano,
Mike St. Clair, John Simmons and David Verser.
to be honored will be Bengals Freezer Bowl alum Dave Lapham, who will be in the
PBS home radio booth at the time of the ceremony, preparing for his role as
analyst on the Bengals Radio Network.
A special addition to the on-field
group will be James Brooks, who played for San Diego in the Freezer Bowl before
later having an outstanding career as a Bengal.
