So much for the fears of fans freezing, and it seems critics of the so called 'outdoor game' can now back down from their criticism of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
The kick-off time temperature on Sunday was 49 degrees, which was still a way off the record low set in New Orleans of 39 degrees.
That game was the Super Bowl's sixth instalment and was held at Tulane Stadium in 1972.
Initial forecasts for this year's big-game explained that it could be as low as the mid to low 30's. Snow showers were also forecast, but it seems all predictions were out by a day.
Super Bowl IX in 1975 is still second in the cold race with an in-game temperature of 46 degrees, and that game was also played in New Orleans.
