Bill de Blasio says New York City is ready for some football.
    
The mayor said Monday that he has received "sterling" reports on the preparations for the Super Bowl.
    
The NFL's title game will be held Feb. 2 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., home to the New York Giants and Jets.
    
This is the first time the region has hosted the Super Bowl.
    
De Blasio touted the "fantastic impact" the game would have on the city's economy.
    
De Blasio grew up in Massachusetts and he cheers for one of the local teams' biggest rivals: the New England Patriots.
    
The Patriots are one win away from advancing to the Super Bowl but de Blasio said they have a "very tough" game this Sunday against the Denver Broncos.
