Roof open at University of Phoenix Stadium


GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The sun is shining down on Super Bowl XLIX.

The league confirmed to Around The NFL on Sunday that the roof at University of Phoenix Stadium will be kept open for today's showdown between the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots.

It's an unusual sight for this venue after the Cardinals kept their retractable roof closed for every regular-season game in 2014. 

After three days of rainy weather in the desert, though, the Patriots and Seahawks have been graced with outstanding conditions for the big game.
