EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Super Bowl XLVIII is officially an upset, and the game hasn't even kicked off yet.

The temperature is practically balmy for early February in the New York metropolitan area -- so warm, in fact, that several ice sculptures outside MetLife Stadium are melting. The mercury reached 56 degrees earlier Sunday, and it's currently 52. We're expecting 46 degrees at game time with a slight chance of rain.

Now we wait to see whether Peyton Manning melts under pressure or leads his Denver Broncos to a championship.
