Super Bowl XLIX is this and just about every football fan is ready for the big game.

With the New York Giants finishing the 2014 season with a record of 6-10 and the Jets claiming last place at 4-12, no New York team was even close to making it to the Super Bowl this year.

Despite embarrassing seasons for both squads, New Yorkers are still eager to watch the game and predict who will take home the Vince Lombardi trophy this year.

Metro hit the streets to find out who they’ll be rooting for and who's going to win Super Bowl 2015.

"Something from seattle ... and the Patriots? Right? I don't have plans to see it, but I know some people who are watching it, so I might end up catching it ... If i had to choose a team it would be Sea Hawks cus' i have friends from there ... I'm not that surprised NY isn't in it, but I would definitely be more into it if a NY team was going."


Buba Le, 32, from Israel

"I'm a fan of the Sea Hawks just cuts the Giants didn't make it."


Mariyam Nayeri, 35, hails from Wisconsin but lives in Bed Stuy

"(Laughs) Yes, I know it's the patriots and the sea hawks ... I don't really have a vested interest in who's playing ... if it were the (Green Bay) Packers I would have been more into it ... Packers and football are like a religion with my family (laughs) ... but if I had to choose a team I'd go for the Sea Hawks, I'm not planning on watching it though."
