A Snow Super Bowl would be NFL Films greatest immortalized game

NFL Films have made the history of the NFL into the most compelling story in sports, and a snow Super Bowl in 2014 would arguably become the greatest game to be immortalised by the in-house PR machine. 

You can just imagine the commentators talking us through a key 3rd & 8, with Manning going head to head against the Seahawks defense. Snow would be hurling down and the classical music associated with the NFL Films would make for excellent drama.

However, it doesn't look like we will be able to get the dream tension of a snow Super Bowl after all, with dry weather expected Sunday.

“There will be a two or three day window up there where some milder air moving in and it will be some relatively calm Sunday through Monday,” said Michael Palmer, a lead meteorologist from the Weather Channel. “The NFL is going to seriously luck out this weekend.”

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has been criticized heavily for choosing an outdoor Super Bowl, but the worse the weather gets the better the spectacle will be. 

As is often the case, a cold and wet game is harder for players than a freezing and snowy game.

When conditions are at their worst players come together and fans come together, and it adds to the momentous nature of the game.

It would also act as Peyton Manning's greatest challenge and something that, if he overcame it, could add to his incredible legacy. 

Bring on a Snow Super Bowl!
