The Super Bowl is being played outside this year. If the weather is bad that Sunday, the National Football League is making contingency plans to play it on another day — like Monday.

In case of disastrous weather outside New York, the league is making contingency plans for Super Saturday or Friday or Monday. Even if the game takes place on time, the weather may be tough. Crews are ready to remove snow. And as for fans, this year, wardrobe malfunction would generally tend to mean you forgot your gloves.
