The Ravens aren’t the only team in Sunday’s matchup being given the unfortunate task of replacing a critical star. New England will once again have to make its Super Bowl run without Gronkowski, who reinjured his forearm in last week’s victory over the Houston Texans and was placed on injured reserve.

As luck would have it, the Patriots do have well-documented and Pro Bowl caliber tight end who can Gronk’s pass-catching ability. Aaron Hernandez may be a slight step below Gronkowski’s best tight end in the NFL skill level, but caught two touchdowns and looked fantastic last week.

Where Gronkowski’s absence will ultimately create a problem is in the Patriots’ hallowed two tight end sets. If New England continues with what we saw last week, Hoomanawanui will be Gronkowski’s replacement in most of those formations.

In pass-blocking situations, Hoomanawnui should perform admirably. He’s an absolute mauler and shouldn’t have much of a problem protecting against Baltimore’s edge rushers with a full week to prepare.

One problem: He’s a complete non-entity in the passing game. Shuffling in and out of the lineup both as a fullback and tight end, Hoomanawnui was targeted a whopping seven times all season and not at all in 51 offensive snaps against Houston.

The Patriots could run a rotation with Hoomanawanui and Daniel Fells, but run the risk of telegraphing their plays in those situations. In other words, it’s time for Hoomanawanui to step up.

July 4th, 1988

July 4th

7 + 4 +2+0+1+2 = 16 = his personal year (from July 4th, 2012 to July 3rd, 2013) = Stunning.  Amazing.

16 year + 1 (January) = 17 = his personal month (from January 4th, 2013 to February 3rd, 2013) = Making miracles happen.

17

17 month + 20 (20th of the month on Sunday January 20th, 2013) = 37 = his personal day = Putting his heart into it.  Playing his heart out.  Deeply emotional.

[When his number (37 (his life lesson)) comes up, that’s when he gets to live/experience what he is here to live/experience.  So Sunday is HIS day!!!]

This will be the first Super Bowl to be played in Indianapolis, and the first time in the history of the game it will be played in consecutive years in a retractable roof stadium. This will also be only the fourth time that the Super Bowl is played in a cold-weather city, after Detroit‘s hosting of XVI and XL as well as Minneapolis‘ hosting of XXVIDowntown Indianapolis, the home of Lucas Oil Stadium, will feature an outdoor Super Bowl Village and other programs at Indiana Convention Center.

Per convention as an even-numbered Super Bowl, the Patriots as the AFC representatives will have the home team designation. Super Bowl XLVI will be the sixth Super Bowl in which the two teams had competed in a previous Super Bowl match up, as the Giants and Patriots had previously met in Super Bowl XLII. Both head coaches (Tom Coughlin and Bill Belichick) and both starting quarterbacks (Eli Manning and Tom Brady) return from Super Bowl XLII.

In the United States, the game will be televised nationally by NBC. It will also be streamed online, both to computers (via NBC.com) and mobile devices (via Verizon Wireless‘s NFL Mobile app), the first legal online streaming of a Super Bowl telecast in the USA.

Madonna had been confirmed as the performer for the Super Bowl halftime show, with M.I.A. and Nicki Minaj possibly performing as well; all three are performing on Madonna’s upcoming single “Gimme All Your Luvin” which will be performed as part of the show. The league confirmed Madonna as the performer on December 4. Other collaborators on the project include longtime Madonna collaborator Jamie KingMoment Factory and Cirque du Soleil.

The Indiana University Marching Hundred will be performing during the pregame show.

On January 12, 2012, it was reported that former American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson will sing the National Anthem at Super Bowl XLVI. It marks the fourth time in the previous five years that an Idol contestant has performed the anthem (joining Carrie UnderwoodJennifer Hudson and Jordin Sparks).
