SB Nation 2014 NFL Playoff Coverage

The weather will apparently be just fine for the game, after weeks of worry. There is no precipitation in the forecast, but it is going to be chilly and a little windy for the game. The coldest Super Bowl start temperature on record is 36 degrees, for Super Bowl VI between the Dolphins and Cowboys. Other cities have been cold for the game, but it's been played in a Dome.

So I mentioned the game was on Fox at 6:30 p.m. ET. You can also watch it online or on your phone with the FOX mobile app.

Don't forget to fire up the squares game at your Super Bowl party today. If you need a reminder on how to play, we've got you covered.

The Entertainment

Opera singer Renee Fleming is singing the National Anthem. How long with she make the song? That's always a popular prop bet, so be sure get your dollar billz in on time. More on prop bets here.

Queen Latifah will be singing "America the Beautiful."

The halftime show will feature Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. There are already a slew of prop bets around that, and 10 years after The Nipple incident, maybe Flea will deliver on his since-deleted tweet offering to take out his penis during the game.

The Participants

Of course, you know the Seahawks. The Rams play them twice every year, and the games have been getting much better than they used to be. No matter how much you despise the Seahawks, the guys over at Field Gulls do run a great site, so follow them during the game, @FieldGulls.

Mile High Report is on the Broncos beat. And they have a credentialed writer covering the game, so give them a follow @MileHighReport.
