26 awesome photos from the NFL's snowy Sunday games

Snow seemed to be almost everywhere during week 14 of the NFL season -- from the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field to the turf at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, players were slipping, sliding and frolicking through winter wonderlands all day.

With Super Bowl XLVIII fewer than two months away, perhaps the football gods were giving us and NFL officials a look at what the game at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands in New Jersey might look like on February 2, 2014. Remember, back in August, the 197-year-old Farmers' Almanac predicted a winter storm will hit the Northeast around the time the Super Bowl is played. At the very least, a host of players got a tuneup on Sunday for a Super Bowl in the snow. Here are some memorable photos from games around the league.

This is how the game should be played. Not like all the girls teams that play indoors

And this is why the earliest Super Bowls were played in Miami, New Orleans, L.A, etc, and why the original college bowl games were the Rose ( California), Sun ( Arizona), Sugar ( New Orleans), Orange ( Florida), and Cotton ( Texas). They were held in warmer climates with little chances of blizzards in December and January. I am hoping my favorite team makes it to the Super Bowl again, but they don't play well in cold weather. ( New Orleans Saints.)

Its time for every NFL team to have a domed stadium, as a back up. With commercials to pay for all these mulity gazellion ball players, salaries. And how about double headers in the future. For baseball, football, etc. The owners have the money, and the fans want to see a game in comfort. Or are the owners thinking about charging more money for TV spectators in the future. Watch out fans.

Ok never mind the game. What happens if the snow starts Saturday night and you can't get to the game and how would they clear out the stadium in time? Maybe it's starts on Friday and your stuck at the airport for two days. Hopefully they have a good backup plan.

Why in the WORLD would you award a Super Bowl to a north-eastern city with an UNDOMED stadium, for a game to be player in the middle of winter?

THE weather has always been part of the game ? they never should have allowed closed stadiums or astro turf , some of the greatest and most fun games ive been to were in snow storms , this is a game that requires a team to have many tallents , passing , running , kicking , blocking , on offense and defense , so you can handle what ever the football gods throw at you , i dont care what the conditions are , this is gonna be a great game played by two great teams , SO RELAX AND ENJOYTHE GAME .....
