The Vikings and the Packers didn't make it to the Super Bowl, but Northlanders still tuned in to watch the big game.
We went out on the streets and asked Northlanders, what did you think? Many were hoping for a little more action. The Seahawks beat the Broncos 43-8.

"They were definitely not as good as they usually are. I really liked the Budweiser one with the puppies. I mean,...who doesn't like puppies," said Dana Williams.
Among those we talked to, the Budweiser spot was a hit, as was the Cheerios ad, the one for Radio Shack, and the Audi ad.
"The only commercial I liked was the Doritos one. They were all the same over and over, it was boring," said Nadhi Woliye at UMD.
The halftime show seemed to get mixed reviews, but the game itself? No rave reviews.
"I thought it was pretty boring," said Matt Fioritto.
