Mason says there's no fear of Lambeau

Ravens wide receiver Derrick Mason said there is more awe than fear when playing at Green Bay's Lambeau Field.

"After you've been through it the first time and you walk into the stadium -- the frozen tundra and all the history that's behind it -- you're kind of amazed by the field and the crowd. After that, it's football," Mason said. "We're not playing the stadium, so that's a good thing."

Mason also said the players aren't concerned about the cold temperature.

"As long as it's not minus-40, it doesn't matter," Mason said. "Once you start playing, you start to heat up. The worst part is when you stop and go to the sideline, and then you start freezing again. I don't think weather can be an excuse unless it's pouring down rain. They have to play in the same weather. You go out there and you hope this time of year that it's snowing. That means it's typically a little bit warmer."
