This year was the first time that the biggest game in sports took place in the New York-New Jersey area, when the Seattle Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos in MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands. The event brought masses of fans to the region, with celebrations spread over several states.
Prior to the event there were concerns about winter weather affecting the game. Transportation was also a concern, with significant backups in mass transportation encountered on the day of the event.
Still, Christie said that the NFL officials loved the area and that a return visit was possible.
