Around two and a half years ago, the Jets and Giants hosted Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium. The Seattle Seahawks dismantled the Denver Broncos 43-8. Gary Myers reports the teams have shown interest in hosting another Super Bowl.

Giants co-owner John Mara told the Daily News that the Giants and Jets have informed the NFL they are interested in hosting either Super Bowl LVI in 2022 or Super Bowl LVII in 2023. As this point, it’s more of a “placeholder,” Mara said, than a final determination that they will make an official bid.

“We have informed them of our interest in both games,” Mara said. “We hope to pursue another Super Bowl. We’re not sure yet of the date.”

Despite concerns over holding the game at a cold weather Super Bowl site, the temperature was 49 degrees. The New York area was hit by a major snowstorm the next day, though.

The NFL indicated at the time the Super Bowl in the New York area was a one time thing. We will see whether the league will change its mind.
