MetLife Stadium is under snow and the weather forecast could be deadly for the Super Bowl matchup with a storm and some cold weather could be in store for February 2014 as the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos matchup in what could be the blizzard bowl for the NFL.
Knowing the league and how lucky they always seem to get, the weather will probably end up being warm for the date and the sun will be out, but the league is putting in plans for any type of weather, including rain, snow, ice and cold winds. Either way, commissioner Roger Goodell will be in the elements for it as ESPN.com reports that Roger Goodell will be sitting outside for the game. The report says that he will be outside with fans for the game and has previously said that he loves cold weather games and that he was looking forward to staying outside during the Super Bowl.
Both the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos have to play outside and in the elements and have done so this season, so the weather really doesn't favor one team or the other exactly, although one could argue that the Seahawks are better prepared if it's windy or snowing, as they rely more on the legs of Marshawn Lynch compared to the Broncos, who rely so much on the arm of Peyton Manning. NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle previously had done the same thing back in Super Bowl VI, which was the coldest ever and it is likely that the MetLife game will trump that.
The weather is expected to be around 35 degrees, with the high being 37 and the low being 25 degrees and snow and showers are possible for the game, says ESPN.com.
