Sunday is Super Bowl XLIX. 

That’s 49 … in the numerology the NFL has followed since 1971 and Super Bowl V.

But next year, the rules go out the window.

As we told you when the announcement was made in summer, Super Bowl 50 will officially be Super Bowl 50 … not Super Bowl L.

“L” all by itself just wasn’t pleasing to the eye, the league says.
