We have finally reached the culmination of the 2014 NFL season. No more talk about whose balls are deflated and who did or did not show up to media day just to not get fined. Now it's time for some football. Super Bowl XLIX will feature the top two teams from each conference, with the Seattle Seahawks representing the NFC and the New England Patriots coming from the AFC. We've got the nuts and bolts of the Super Bowl Sunday schedule for you below but if you want all of the previews, matchup analysis, weather updates and a lot more, make sure you check out our (mobile friendly!) Super Bowl hub at SB Nation.
Weather will not be a factor in this game, given the retractable roof on Glendale, Arizona's University of Phoenix Stadium. Even if the roof is left open, however, the weather appears to be perfect for the game. The forecast has the temperature at kickoff just below 70-degrees with clear skies.
The game will be far from last year's New York (New Jersey) Super Bowl, where the temperature at kickoff was 49-degrees Fahrenheit as the Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos in MetLife Stadium. That game, as cold as it was, still did not break the record for the coldest game, when the Miami Dolphins and Dallas Cowboys kicked off in Super Bowl VI at New Orleans' Tulane Stadium in 39-degree temperatures.
