Brandon Carr appreciates Ice Bowl history but focused only on beating Green Bay

Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr has heard the stories of the Ice Bowl and knows the background of historic Lambeau Field.

He appreciates the opportunity to play on the same stage on Sunday in the NFC Divisional Playoffs against the Green Bay Packers.

The Cowboys will be playing a playoff game at Lambeau Field for the first time since the 1967 Ice Bowl.

But Carr said this is not a time for nostalgia. It will be a business trip and the Cowboys will be focused solely on beating the Packers and advancing to the NFC title game.

“There’s a lot of great history,” Carr said. “It’s definitely something as a kid you grow up learning about. You watch all the great documentaries and stories. It’s great stories. But you know Sunday is going to be a 60-minute dog fight. I play for the Cowboys and my job is to try to get this victory on Sunday.”
