The NFL has big plans for the 50th Super Bowl, which will be held in 2016, according to ProFootballTalk.

“We are looking at plans to make it spectacular,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said, according to NBC Sports.

“I do not know who is bidding on it,” Goodell said Wednesday.  “I know there will be quite a bit of competition for it . . . and that is an important game for us as a league.”

The league is expected to announce the host of the game by May 2013, however a decision could come as soon as this fall.

Possible suitors for the game include the Dallas Cowboys, San Francisco 49ers, New Orleans Saints, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
