Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, is borrowing a line from the United States Postal Service creed. “Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor hail" shall keep Manning from delivering the Lombardi Trophy to the City of Denver.

According to a Jan. 24, report by the NFL, Denver's current frigid temperatures are the perfect climate for cold-weather team practice, in preparation for the cold weather in New Jersey, where the 2014 NFL Super Bowl.will commence.

Manning told Newsday in an interview, "We've practiced in this and had to play in these types of conditions at different points in the year." Manning continued, "So any time you can have a similar situation you can simulate during practice which it might be during a game, it always is a good thing."

The weather forecast for the big game could set the stage for the coldest Super Bowl event on record. The good news is, the sometimes unpredictable Northeast weather can swing to unseasonably warm temperatures, even in the heart of winter.

Temperature highs in New Jersey, in early Feb. are around 40 degrees and lows around 21 degrees. But last year in Jan. 2013, actual temperatures on Jan. 29, 53°, Jan. 30, 66° and Jan. 31, 62°.
