Super Bowl XLVIII is scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 2, but the NFL has contingency plans to play any time between Friday and Monday next weekend, according to The Chicago Tribune and Reuters.

A storm of massive proportions would have to be in the forecast for the NFL to change the date of its biggest game.

The current forecast for Super Bowl Sunday in East Rutherford, N.J., according to AccuWeather.com is for a high of 36 and 30 percent chance of rain or snow. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:25 p.m.
