GREEN BAY, Wis. -- For the second time this season, the Packers are inviting fans to help clear snow and ice from Lambeau Field.
Two days before Green Bay hosts the Minnesota Vikings in the playoffs, the team is looking for 600 fans to show up at 9 a.m. Thursday to help get the stadium ready.
On Dec. 21, more than 1,000 fans showed up to shovel at least a foot of snow out of Lambeau Field, but there were only 650 shovels able to be distributed. Fans who do make it in are paid 10 per hour.
There isn't much snow in the forecast, but some has accumulated in the stadium over the past few days. Additionally, there is some ice on the seats that fans would help salt away.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. When the Minnesota Vikings jumped out to their surprising start this season, many had begun to tout Percy Harvin as an early candidate for the league's MVP award.
During Minnesota's late-season run to advance to Saturday's playoff game at Green Bay, Harvin was merely an afterthought.
The multi-talented receiver and returner was put on injured reserve...
The Minnesota Vikings are Adrian Peterson's team. Christian Ponder, though, is the one most responsible for their progress.
The passing game was so bad and the ground game was so good that, for a while, Peterson was rushing for more yards than Ponder was accumulating passing.
But since the Vikings lost to the Packers on Dec. 2, due largely to the two interceptions Ponder threw...

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Adrian Peterson was the best player for the Minnesota Vikings all season. There is no debating that. But as great as the team's star running back was, he needed some help from quarterback Christian Ponder in order to get the Vikings into the playoffs.
Throughout most of the season, Peterson didn't get that help. In his second NFL season, Ponder mostly struggled...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- There wasn't much that the Packers were able to do in the regular season to stop Adrian Peterson. The Minnesota Vikings' star running back totaled 409 yards in two games, making Green Bay's defense look helpless on many of his breakout runs.

When the Minnesota Vikings left Lambeau Field at 6-6 after losing to the Packers on Dec. 2, no one imagined they'd be back so soon.
After all, getting back to Green Bay for a playoff game would require four straight wins including one against the Packers in Minnesota in the final week of the regular season. But sometime in the past month, the Vikings started looking less like...
Leslie Frazier stuck with QB Christian Ponder when outsiders were calling for his job. But since Ponder hit rock bottom at Green Bay, he has rebounded with strong performances in the last month and gained confidence.
