The NFL has made its decision

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - The retractable roof at $1.3 billion
Cowboys Stadium will be closed for the Super Bowl.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said Monday the decision was made
well in advance of the Feb. 6 game so the league could have a
"singular focus" on logistics.

The weather in Dallas-Fort Worth could be good enough for an
open-air game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay
Packers. But there's also a risk of freezing temperatures.

The Cowboys opened the roof when they had 105,121 for the first
regular season game at their new stadium in 2009. Attendance could
surpass 100,000 for the Super Bowl, but only about 93,000 will be
inside the stadium.
