Snow is piled high in a parking lot outside of MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., in February 2013. The NFL says it's ready to get the 2014 Super Bowl played at the stadium no matter what the weather conditions are on Sunday.

The Super Bowl is on Sunday and the buzz is already at its peak between Peyton Manning (too bad, Indianapolis), the trash-talking Richard Sherman and the question on everybody's mind: Will it snow during the game?

Current Head2Head trivia champ Larry Rosenberg, who's retired, is taking on Jill Hershey, who works in a dentist's office, in a round of questions that are all Super Bowl related.

QUESTIONS

1. When was the last year the Denver Broncos won?

2. Tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers, which team has appeared in the most Super Bowl games?

3. Which of the following teams has not won back-to-back Super Bowls: Kansas City Chiefs, New England Patriots or Denver Broncos?

4. What is the only NFL team to have played in both the AFC and NFC championship games?

5. Which of the following teams has a perfect Super Bowl record (so far): Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers or Green Bay Packers?

6. Pete Carroll was head coach of what college football team before coming to Seattle?

7. Which of the following teams has been to the Super Bowl four times but has never won: Minnesota Vikings, Cincinnati Bengals or San Diego Chargers?
