The Super Bowl and halftime performance are scheduled at what time?
That time of year is here again! It’s almost time for the big game! The Super Bowl LVI halftime show, the game, or the commercials? Here’s everything you need to know.When and where can I watch the Super Bowl?
On Sunday, February 13 at 3:30 p.m. PT, Super Bowl LVI takes underway.
Peacock will stream and broadcast the event live on NBC. On top of that, you’ll be able to catch all the action on NBC Sports App and NBC Sports.com. After initially planning to air the Super Bowl in 2021 on NBC in order to avoid conflict with the Winter Olympics, which started on February 4th, that network switched years with CBS and will now air both the Super Bowl and the Winter Olympics simultaneously.
A matchup between the LA Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals. It was a remarkable comeback for both teams to win their respective division titles, with the Bengals defeating the Kansas City Chiefs 27-24 in the AFC Championship game. To win the NFC Championship, the Los Angeles Rams staged a dramatic fourth-quarter comeback to overcome the San Francisco 49ers 20-17 in overtime.
It’s being held in what city?
SoFi Stadium, the new home of the Los Angeles Rams, will host Super Bowl LVI (and the LA Chargers). A Super Bowl club will enjoy home field advantage for the second time this season (the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the Super Bowl at home last year). For uniform and coin-toss reasons, the Bengals will be designated the “home team,” although this is only true since the winners of the two conferences rotate each year. It’s strange, because we’re not in charge of making the rules.
In other words, the Bengals will wear their home uniforms and the Rams will decide whether the game will start with a coin toss or go to OT.
So, who are some of the key players?
The starting quarterbacks. While neither player played at the same SEC institution, they were selected first overall in their respective NFL selections, both wear the number 9, and both wore #9.
Joe Burrow is just in his second season as a professional quarterback, and he was sidelined with a ruptured ACL for the most of that season. While he began his collegiate career at Ohio State, Burrow eventually went to Louisiana State University, where he won the 2019 Heisman Trophy and was selected first overall by the Bengals in the 2020 draft. If Burrow wins the Super Bowl, he’ll join the ranks of Joe Montana and Joe Namath as the only quarterbacks in history to win both a college football National Championship and a Super Bowl.
Matthew Stafford, the quarterback for the Los Angeles Rams, has been with the Detroit Lions for more than a decade. At the University of Georgia, Stafford had an impressive career, but he was unable to lead them to their first National Championship in in 30 years. To avoid his senior year of high school, he entered the 2009 NFL Draft and was taken number one overall by the Detroit Lions in that year’s draft. A few weeks ago, coach Sean McVay claimed the squad wouldn’t be where it is now if it weren’t for the leadership of quarterback Matthew Stafford.
Who will come out on top?
Bleacher Report, owned by CNN parent company Warner Media, has the Rams as a slight favorite. Since no one could have foreseen this game at season’s beginning as far as matches are concerned… In terms of overall record, the Rams are 12-5 while the Bengals are 10-7.
Among other things, Bleacher Report calculates the probability of Burrow throwing an interception, the probability of Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. amassing more than 64 yards receiving, and more.
Who’s going to play during halftime?
For this year’s halftime performance, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar are among the artists who will play. Start time is about 5pm PST
The clip, titled “The Call,” was directed by “Straight Outta Compton” director F. Gary Gray. The teaser may be seen here:
Are you talking about the ads?
Beatboxing swamp creatures and Trevor Noah chewing deodorant are just some of the bizarre acts that you may expect to see.
You have a choice: who do you want to win?
Who gives a f*ck? I’m joking, but only sort of.
Many sports commentators, including the NFL, have dubbed this postseason’s NFL playoffs “the best playoff season ever.” It’s conceivable that the final game may live up to those lofty expectations.
The Bengals are clearly the underdogs in this game, as well as in terms of the Bengals as a whole, having never won a Super Bowl and not participating in one since the ’80s. For the Bengals, this was a season of firsts after numerous years of losing seasons.
After returning to Los Angeles in 2016, the Rams have established themselves as “Hollywood’s Team” in the city’s second era (sorry, Charger fans). There have been five Super Bowl appearances between Los Angeles and St. Louis for the Rams, the most recent of which was a defeat to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII. In Super Bowl XXXIV, they were the first team in NFL history to win a title.
