As we're just days away from Super Bowl Sunday, football fans are securing their plans to watch the game, cheer on their favorite team, and choose between television and the bedroom on a Sunday afternoon.

According to social dating site Zoosk, their survey of 1,000 singles surprisingly showed that women preferred watching the game ahead of spending intimate time in the bedroom. With the game scheduled only 8 days before Valentine's, a day that women equate to the "Super Bowl of Love," 73% of women said they'd prefer watching the game on television over having sex. By comparison, half of the men preferred watching the game and the other 50% still wanted to have sex on Super Bowl Sunday in lieu of television viewing.

The Zoosk poll also reflected that 57% of dating singles were getting excited about the upcoming game between the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Of those, only 7% considered the half-time show as their favorite and 20% liked watching the commercials.

So is the Super Bowl sacred to both men and women? Do you think that the tables will turn once the game is over and Valentine's is next up on the plate? Do you think that the Super Bowl for Men is Like Valentine's Day for Women?
