NEW YORK CITY (NBC News) Millions are bundling up against chilly winter weather including fast-falling snow and frigid winds.
We’re now less than a week away from Super Bowl 48.
That includes in New York and New Jersey where football fans are preparing for the first ever cold-weather open-air stadium Super Bowl. Forget who will win the big game, right now everyone is talking about just how cold Sunday is going to be.
While both the Seahawks and the Broncos have been gearing up for the Super Bowl, so have those tasked with clearing snow at New Jersey’s Metlife Stadium.
