When the NFL awarded the 2014 Super Bowl to the New York City area in May 2010, it knew full well that it was the first time it was placing the marquee game outdoors in a cold-weather climate.
New York topped Tampa and Miami for the honor to the elation of New York Giants and New York Jets contingents, USA Today reported at the time. The game will be played on Feb. 2, 2014 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, just outside of New York City.
Some players are not fans of the idea to have a cold-weather Super Bowl. Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco made waves earlier this week when he called it “retarded.”
