The game is over, ladies! There appeared a new sexy couple at the upcoming Super Bowl this weekend. You will never guess who they are.

Because it is Eric Decker and Jessie James, that make one hot couple.

Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker and his country singer fiancée Jessie James touched down last night in New Orleans, where they’ll be staying to watch the Super Bowl this Sunday.

The Super Bowl may be a contest between the 49ers and Ravens but Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker is already the biggest winner with such a hot fiancée.

Decker’s not playing – obviously – but that won’t stop him and his girl from completely overshadowing every other hot couple expected at the big game … a list that includes tons of other NFL players, Victoria’s Secret models, Hollywood actors, actresses, you name it.

The 25-year-old NFL player and James announced their impending nuptials in April of last year via Twitter and have a Colorado wedding planned for this summer.

“We are blessed to have found each other,” James once wrote on her Twitter page.

The sultry pop-country singer was born in Italy but grew up in Louisiana and Georgia. She was first signed to a pop record label after graduating from high school but changed genres to country a few years later when she released the song “When You Say My Name.” The sound is a big change from her 2009 self-titled CD, but she’s hopeful it will be well received.

“I came out when I was 19,” the 24-year-old said in an interview. “I’ve learned so much, this is a different version of me: a more mature version.”

In 2011, James sang the National Anthem during a Broncos-Jets game wearing her sweetie’s No. 87 jersey.

Her 6-foot-3 pro-athlete groom-to-be excelled in football and baseball while attending the University of Minnesota and was drafted by the Broncos in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft, reports the NY Daily News.

The petite beauty’s 6’3″ groom is a star wide receiver for the Broncos, catching 44 passes (the most of all his teammates) last season, and scoring eight touchdowns. Eric and Jessie met through a mutual friend in 2011 and began their romantic relationship over the phone.

Eric Decker and Jessie James are still working out the details of when and where they will marry next year, but that hasn’t stopped James from attending to other wedding matters — namely, her dress.

“I came into the shop thinking I wanted a certain type of gown and brought pictures of that style with me,” James said. “As I was trying on all the dresses, I was getting the reaction of, ‘OK, this is nice,’ but it wasn’t quite how I was supposed to feel.”

The couple’s wedding will likely include a few Southern details in design and traditions to pay homage to James’ career and upbringing.

The Super Bowl will be played at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana, on February 3, 2013. The game will be held between the American Football Conference (AFC) champion Baltimore Ravens and the National Football Conference (NFC) champion San Francisco 49ers to decide the National Football League (NFL) champion for the 2012 season.
