ASHBURN, Va. -- Now that the New York area is getting a cold-weather Super Bowl, Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder is going to try to do the same for the nation's capital.

Snyder said Wednesday he doesn't think it'll be long before a Super Bowl comes to Washington. He's anticipating a "great experience" for the NFL in 2014 at the Meadowlands. He thinks that will spur the league to give other nontraditional Super Bowl cities a chance.

The 2014 Super Bowl will be the first to be played outdoors in a cold-weather city. The league made an exception to its usual temperature rule and awarded the game to the Giants' and Jets' new stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

The Redskins tried unsuccessfully to land the Super Bowl in 2003. This time, Snyder says: "We're ripe to get one."
