JERSEY CITY, N.J. - So much for all of the hand-wringing about a snowed-in Super Bowl.

If the National Weather Service's forecast is correct, the buzz about a blizzard at the first cold-weather, outdoor Super Bowl will turn out to be just talk. As of Wednesday, no snow, or even rain, was being predicted for Sunday's game between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks.

Players on both teams have experienced chilly conditions during games, of course, although they don't regularly brace for the sort of brrrr that's anticipated for this Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium, even if there isn't any snow. The high temperature Sunday is expected to be 38 degrees, which would make it the coldest of the 48 Super Bowls so far.
