That's Right: The Super Bowl Could Happen on a Monday

Jan 23 2014 - 11:45am

How does Super Bowl Monday sound to you? In the case of bad weather, there's a chance the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks might not face off at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium on Sunday, Feb. 2. Officials have created contingency plans [1] to play the game on Monday or even Saturday if a massive storm hits and disrupts transportation and overall safety. Guess that means you better make Super Bowl party backup plans, as well.

Luckily, a third iteration of the polar vortex is not predicted for next week. There is only a 30 percent chance of snow or rain, and temps will range from 25°F to 40°F if all goes according to meteorologist estimates. The NFL will also be handing out care packages to fans attending the first-ever cold-weather Super Bowl in an open stadium. The "warm welcome" kit includes Chapstick, mittens, a hat, tissues, the type of hand muffs quarterbacks use, and more. Right now at Meadowlands Sports Complex, workers are shoveling and plowing away snow from the latest storm [2]. You can see photos from the currently snowy stadium below.
