Jake Tapper, Denver mayor bet their jobs on the Super Bowl

CNN's Jake Tapper and the mayor of Denver have a big bet on the Super Bowl.

If the Denver Broncos bring home their third Super Bowl, Mayor Michael Hancock will "be Jake" for a day, anchoring a segment of "The Lead" in place of Tapper. Should the Seattle Seahawks win their first title, Tapper will be "honorable mayor" of the Mile High City for part of the day.

The bet was agreed to last month when Hancock appeared on the CNN show. Tapper, who is an avid Eagles fan, has taken the slight underdog. The Seahawks opened as a 1-point favorite, but the Broncos are now favored to win by about 2 points. 

We'll follow up after the game to ask one of these questions:

What will Hancock talk about on "The Lead"? 

Or

What will Tapper's (brief) agenda be as the mayor of Denver?
