NFL could push back Super Bowl 'as far as 4 weeks' if necessary, Packers CEO says

•, By Paulina Dedaj

Super Bowl 55 is scheduled to take place on the first Sunday in February at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla., but with a number of schedule changes, many are asking if the NFL will have to push back one of the biggest events in sports history.

 Packers' president and CEO, Mark Murphy, addressed the issues ahead of Green Bay's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, stating that while team owners would "prefer" not to, they are prepared for the possibility. 

"We prefer not to. We'd like to play as much as possible the schedule as it sits now," Murphy said. "We had a league meeting this week and decided to cancel the Pro Bowl so that was a fairly easy decision. That's the week before the Super Bowl so it would be very easy to move everything back and create an 18th week."
