Chris Christie says there’s nothing to debate: This year’s Super Bowl belongs to the Garden State. End of discussion. No spin. “Every once and a while somebody goes over to have dinner in New York, but that’s about it.”
Players on both teams have experienced chilly conditions during games, of course, although they don’t regularly brace for the sort of brrrr that’s anticipated for this Super Bowl.

Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno will play in Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, just 40 miles from where he grew up.
