In two weeks when Super Bowl 48 kicks off in Metlife Stadium at the Meadowlands, the paying fans in attendance won’t be the only ones that are going to have to brave the unusually cold weather for the biggest game of the year. No, contrary to what you may have thought, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will also be out in the elements, according to Adam Schefter.
Teams and fans won’t be the only ones outdoors for Super Bowl 48; NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will be sitting outside in stands, too.

Goodell, one of the most hated men in sports, probably would have become even more hated if he was seen throughout the night sitting up in a swanky, heated luxury box.
But no, he will be among the people for this one, and that’s probably a good idea. While were’re too far away to tell what exactly the temp will be two weeks from now, it’s all but guaranteed that it’s going to be near the 20s, at the very least.
Good move, Commish! I even have to ask myself if Jerry Jones would do the same?
