NFL to keep the roof open for Super Bowl Sunday

The roof remained closed at University of Phoenix Stadium, where the NFL football's Super Bowl XLIX will be played, while the grass field remained outside in the sun, Tuesday, Jan. 20, 2015, in Glendale, Ariz.

It's a change of course at University of Phoenix Stadium, where the home team Cardinals have played with the roof closed for every game since December 2013.
