New Orleans to host the Super Bowl in 2018?


We all remember the very last game that Ray Lewis would play. It was the Baltimore Ravens taking on the San Francisco 49ers in what proved to be one of the greatest games in Super Bowl history.

But there was one key moment that will always be remembered besides Ray Lewis and long-time teammate Ed Reed holding up that Lombardi Trophy – that moment being when the lights went out. I assumed it was Jacoby Jones who was the man that turned out the lights after returning the second half kick-off for a touchdown.

Now according to Adam Ranks on Twitter, New Orleans is the favorite to host the 2018 Super Bowl over Indianapolis and Minneapolis.

It would make sense to give Minneapolis Super Bowl LII since the Vikings new stadium will be up and running before the 2016 regular season. This upcoming Super Bowl will be held at the University of Phoenix Stadium (Arizona Cardinals) and Levi Stadium (San Francisco 49ers) will get to host it in 2015.

I wouldn’t mind seeing either M&T Bank Stadium, NRG Stadium, Lambeau Field or Soldier Field receiving Super Bowl’s in the future. Who do you think should host the Super Bowl at least once in the upcoming future?
