EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ-Break out the winter jackets. Super Bowl 2014 is coming to New Jersey. NFL owners voted yesterday to put the championship game in the new $1.6-billion Meadowlands stadium that will be home to the New York Jets and Giants starting this fall. It is the first time the NFL has picked a cold-weather site to host the game, and while there is some dissention from groups that were hoping for a balmy Bowl, the selection could be a huge boon to local economy.

Proponents estimate 30% to 50% of the money would be spent in New Jersey. Assembly Republican Leader Alex DeCroce (R-Morris) said in a statement, “This could mean a $275-million capital influx to our state’s economy, but it will also be a great chance to market New Jersey in a way that could have lasting impacts on our post-recession economy.”
