NFL fans young and old come together each February to celebrate the best teams from each division facing off in a Clash of the Titans style game; the famous Super Bowl. This year is no different, with the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots facing off on Sunday, February 3rd to see who will take home the gold, and the title of the best team in the NFL. Learn how to when, where and watch the big game, and get ready to rumble with Xfinity X1.
The Big Game: the details
It was a long, hard season for the best of the best in the NFL. The playoffs were especially rough, with everything from surprise upsets in the wildcard match to both championship games going into overtime coming into play.
Despite that, two teams have risen to the challenge and proven their worth in the end: the (infamous) New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams. Winning this one for New England would mean the franchise’s sixth time taking it all at the end of the NFL season, whereas the Rams would be celebrating their fourth Super Bowl appearance (and potential second win) in the big game.
Having lost to the Patriots in the same stand-off in 2002, the Rams are now slightly favored to win this year’s match. Of course, the last time the Rams and the Pats met on this occasion the Rams were based in St. Louis; the team’s move to L.A. has seemed to boost team morale and city spirit in the west coast hub, whereas New England remains a point of controversy on the east coast, surrounded by other powerful teams like the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants. However, New England’s following of Tom Brady mega-fans continues to see the team through each winning season, following their history of unprecedented success over the last nine years.
Either way this one turns out, one thing is for sure: it won’t be an easy match up for either team, as both have proven to be NFL powerhouses this season. It will also be an entertaining time for all, with a half-time show by Maroon 5 and Travis Scott and plenty of the acclaimed Super Bowl ads making you laugh (or cringe) between plays.
