NFL has weather contingency plan ready to get Super Bowl played at MetLife - ESPN
The NFL says it's ready for next year's title game at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on Feb. 2, no matter the weather. Even if it means moving the game from its traditional Sunday spot.

Concerns about contingencies arose recently for two reasons: Next year's Super Bowl will be outdoors at a cold-weather site for the first time and the Northeast is still recovering from a monster snowstorm that hit last weekend; the lights went out in the Louisiana Superdome during the Feb. 3 game, causing a 34-minute delay and some anxiety about whether it would resume.

Several published reports said the NFL has discussed changing the day of the game if weather complications arise. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy wouldn't offer specifics, but said Wednesday the league will make whatever changes are necessary.

"We have had contingency plans for the previous 47 Super Bowls," McCarthy said. 'We expect to play all games, including the Super Bowl, as planned. ... We will be prepared if we have to make adjustments."
