Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said he would like to see the Super Bowl make an appearance in the City of Brotherly Love, only if next year's game in East Rutherford, N.J., goes off without a hitch.

Lurie made the comments at the NFL annual meetings in Phoenix.

Super Bowl XLVIII is scheduled for February 2, 2014 at MetLife Stadium and will be the first Super Bowl played outdoors in a traditionally cold-weather winter city.

"Growing up in Boston, I went to more great games in snow conditions," Lurie said to Philly.com. "Some of the most memorable games I've ever been to were very difficult and wonderful conditions. I would have no fear of it snowing -- as long as there's no public safety issue that day, I think it would be great if it's snowing a bit."

Asked then if he would want a roman-numeraled game for Philly, Lurie said, "I will. Yes, I will. If it's a success. New York will help us."

Super Bowl XLIX will be held at University of Phoenix Stadium, in Glendale, Ariz. in 2015.
