NFL: Giants, Jets sign bid to bring Super Bowl to NJ


Associated Press

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. New Jersey's bid to host the 2014 Super Bowl is signed, sealed and about to be delivered.

The owners of the New York Jets and New York Giants on Wednesday signed the official bid that will be sent to all 32 NFL owners. The owners will vote May 25 on whether East Rutherford, Miami or Tampa will be the host.

The theme of the new Meadowlands Stadium's bid is "Make Some History." If the stadium gets the game, it would be the first Super Bowl to be held in a cold-weather locale.

In December, the NFL told the Giants and Jets they could bid on the Super Bowl despite a requirement that host stadiums have a minimum temperature of 50 degrees or roofs.
