The Super Bowl hasn’t been played in January since the Baltimore Ravens defeated the New York Giants in Super Bowl XXXV on Jan. 28, 2001.

Each of the first 35 Super Bowls were played in January before the game shifted to February for the 2001 season.

Several games have been played on the first day of February, including most recently Super Bowl XLIX on Feb. 1, 2015, but none have gone back into January.

Barring a dramatic scheduling change that would include an earlier regular-season start, no bye week after the conference championship, or elimination of at least one regular-season game, the Super Bowl may always remain in February.
