Storyline

Vince Lombardi, a fiery disciplinarian, seems stuck when he is offensive line coach of a New York Giants team that loses the 1958 championship game. His Giants counterpart on the defense, the cool Tom Landry, is signed to head the Dallas Cowboys after being widely courted. Lombardi practically has to beg to run a Packers team so dismal that other team owners want to fold the franchise. Lombardi turns the team into perennial winners, and gets his showdown with Landry in the 1967 league championship game, known as the Ice Bowl because it is played in 13 below zero temperatures. The Packers win.
