Super Bowl LVI kicks off at 6:30 pm ET on Sunday, February 13th.
It will be broadcast live on NBC and streamed on Peacock. You can also watch at NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports App. NBC was originally scheduled to broadcast the 2021 Super Bowl but swapped years with CBS in order to have both the Super Bowl and the Winter Olympics, which began February 4, on at basically the same time.
Where is the Super Bowl being played?
What players should I know about?
The quarterbacks. Both were picked first overall in their respective NFL drafts, both wear # 9, and both played at SEC schools in college, though not at the same time.
Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is in just his second season as a pro and spent the latter part of his first sidelined with a torn ACL. Burrow was drafted first overall by the Bengals in the 2020 draft, and while he started his college career at Ohio State, he later transferred to Louisiana State University, where he won a National Championship and was the Heisman Trophy winner in 2019. If Burrow can pull off a Super Bowl win, he’ll become just the third quarterback in history to win both a college football National Championship and a Super Bowl, joining the likes of Joe Montana and Joe Namath (yes, they’ll all be named “Joe . “)
Rams ‘quarterback Matthew Stafford is in his first season with Los Angeles, after more than a decade as the Detroit Lions’ signal caller. Stafford’s college career at the University of Georgia was more than respectable, but he failed to lead the school to a National Championship. He ultimately chose to forgo his senior year and entered the 2009 NFL draft, where he was selected first overall by the Lions. He was traded to the Rams last year, and coach Sean McVay said a few weeks ago the team would not be where it is today without Stafford’s leadership.
Who’s going to win?
Who’s performing in the halftime show?
This year’s halftime show looks to be a rap, hip-hop love fest with Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar performing.
What about the commercials?
Don’t worry, we’ve got a preview!
Who should you root for?
Honestly, who cares! Just kidding – kind of.
The Bengals are certainly the underdog (undercat?), Not only in this matchup, but from a franchise perspective as well, having never won a Super Bowl and not appearing in one since the 1980s. The Bengals also had not had a winning season in several years, until now.
