Much talk surrounding this weekend's Super Bowl has been weather-related, but forecasts don't predict snow for the actual game. Assuming that forecast holds, and the game is played in cold but not inclement weather, the New York/New Jersey Super Bowl could open the door for an eventual title game in D.C.

Redskins owner Dan Snyder would likely look to bid for a Super Bowl, especially if a new stadium is ever built for the team. Other cities that play outdoor in typically cold-weather cities may also begin to apply for SUper Bowls, like Baltimore, New England and Pittsburgh.

"I do think if we do a good job and all goes well, it will open the door to other cities, yes," New York Giants owner John Mara told The Washington Post. The Giants are the host of this year's Super Bowl. 

FedEx Field may never host a Super Bowl, but the Washington region would be well equipped. The city frequently hosts huge gatherings and clearly has the infrastructure, hotels and party space needed for the big game. All of that is something Snyder would likely include in a Super Bowl proposal.
