SUPER BOWL XLVIII
Super Bowl XLVIII is an upcoming American football game between the American Football Conference (AFC) champion Denver Broncos and National Football Conference (NFC) champion Seattle Seahawks to decide the National Football League (NFL) champion for the 2013-2014 season. It is scheduled to be held on February 2, 2014, at MetLife Stadium at the Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey, with kickoff scheduled for 6:25 p.m. ET.
This will be the first Super Bowl to be played outdoors in a cold weather environment, the first played on February 2, the first to be played outdoors on artificial turf since Super Bowl X at the Miami Orange Bowl, and the first in which two states (New York and New Jersey) will share in hosting this event. It is also the first time since Super Bowl XLIV, and just the second time in the past twenty seasons, that the #1 seeds from each conference will meet to decide the championship. The game will feature the league’s top offense (Denver) vs. the top defense (Seattle), which has not occurred since Super Bowl XXXVII.
