Super Bowl is on schedule for 6:30 p.m. kickoff

Speaking to reporters with fake snow falling behind him, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said everything appears fine for Sunday's Super Bowl.

We appreciate the magnificent job done by New York and New Jersey,” Goodell said. “And just to confirm, we will kick off at 6:30.”

There was a concern that weather could delay the Super Bowl. However, it's anticipated that the temperature will be in the 40s, making that not a concern.

If the game goes on without a hitch then it could open the Super Bowl to a host of other cold-weather cities that play outdoors.

“I believe we need to get to as many communities as possible and give them the opportunity to share in not only the emotional benefits but also the economic benefits," Goodell said. "It helps the NFL, it helps our fans and it helps grow our game.”
