The Golden Super Bowl is just around the corner. As we make our way into NFL Week 15 the writing is clearly on the wall which teams still have a chance to make it into the playoffs and have their chance at going to Superbowl 50. Week 14 closed out with a Giants win over the Dolphins after Odell Beckham made yet another incredible catch to help lift the Giants over the Dolphins in the Monday Night Game.
Super Bowl 50 is unique in the sense that this is one of the first Super Bowl in which the NFL has declined to use the Roman numerals in order to indicate edition of this Super Bowl. Although some people are using the Roman numeral and calling the Super Bowl, “Super Bowl L,” the NFL has elected to simply refer to this years upcoming Super Bowl as Super Bowl 50.
It is unclear as to whether or not the NFL will go back to using Roman numerals again after the 2015-2016 season. Super Bowl 50 will played in Levi’s Stadium, which is the home stadium of the San Francisco 49ers. The pleasant year round climate that the San Francisco area receives makes this site a perfect selection for the 50th edition of the NFL’s Super Bowl.
Some analysts have referred to Super Bowl 50 as being the Golden Super Bowl as it is being held in California, which is know as the Golden state. Another distinction is that a 50th anniversary of an event is usually commemorated in gold, thus having the 50th Super Bowl game in Levi’s Stadium seems to make a lot of sense.
