The stage is set for Super Bowl 52.
Whether you're hosting a Super Bowl party, going to a buddies place for the big game, or simply watching the game by yourself you'll need to know a few things. For instance, what time the game starts, what channel it's on etc.
The following will tell you everything you need to know.
Where To Watch:
The game will take place at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota on Sunday, February 4th. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30pm ET, airing on NBC. The spread is subject to vary slightly over the course of the next two weeks, but as of now the Patriots are favored by 4.5 points over the Eagles. The over/under point total is currently set at 48 points.
Pink, a noted Eagles fan, has been tapped for the national anthem and Justin Timberlake has been named this year's halftime performer. It'll be Timberlake's first Super Bowl appearance since the infamous Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction during halftime of the 2004 Super Bowl. Ironically, the two teams that played in that game were the Patriots and Eagles, and that was the last time Philly made it to the big game.
It'll be Tom Brady, the #1 passer in the NFL, against Nick Foles, the Eagles backup QB. David vs Goliath. The underdog role has suited Philly quite well over the last two games against Atlanta and Minnesota, but the Patriots are a whole different beast.
The Eagles have never won a Super Bowl in franchise history, whereas Brady and Bill Belichick will be looking for their sixth Super Bowl title together, and their second back-to-back.
