Let’s dive deeper and explore all the talking points of this year’s Super Bowl.

The Beginning Of The Super Bowl

American Football League (AFL) and National Football League (NFL) were two different leagues that were merged in 1970. 1966 was the year when the first Super Bowl was played, and the AFL and NFL champions featured in the finals for four seasons. After the union, American Football Conference (AFC) and National Football Conference (NFC) were made, and the Super Bowl pits the champions of the AFC and NFC. The first-ever Super Bowl was played between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Green Bay Packers. The Chiefs lost that game, but they are now back with a new spirit trying to win this year’s Super Bowl LVII. The most important question is whether they will be able to win their 3rd NFL. It won’t be easy as they are up against the Philadelphia Eagles, who won their first Super Bowl in 2017 and have been playing exceptionally well since then. It will be exciting to see whether the Chiefs fans will be able to celebrate the victory in their Kansas City Jackets or if will there be a Philly Special on the cards to spoil the party for them.

Excitement Level Of Fans For The Super Bowl LVII

Super Bowl gets record viewership every year, and it perfectly demonstrates the excitement level of the fans. The game also sees the most expensive advertisements, as the rates are always touching the roof on the big day. Around 70,000 people will be watching the game live from the State Farm Stadium, and millions will gather in sports bars or enjoy the game at their homes. NFL is known to have the most passionate followers, and nothing can dampen their spirit as they wait for this eagerly wait for this big game. There are four 15-minute quarters in a regulation NFL game, and fans enjoy every second of it. There is a 12-minute break after the completion of the first two quarters, commonly known as halftime. There is an extended halftime period for the Super Bowl game as several performances are planned by globally acclaimed artists. The enthusiasm of the fans is on another level as this year Rihanna has been announced as the iconic performer for the halftime show.

Let’s Recap The Eagles Journey To Super Bowl LVII

It has been an interesting ride for the Eagles, and their fans as they went from losing two games without Jalen Hurts to reaching the finals. They are now one of the last two teams running in for that coveted NFL title. It takes a village to move a village, and this has been the story of the Philadelphia Eagles this season. They are still in the race after 20 weeks and 19 games because of a collective team effort throughout the season. The fans have started planning to leave for Arizona, as it will surely be a sell-out, and tickets will end any time soon. The passionate followers of the Eagles are ready to enter the State Farm Stadium dressed in their Philadelphia jackets and make their team feel like they are playing at the Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles won 14 of their 16 games and then ran over the Giants and the 49ers to enter Super Bowl LVII.

The Kansas City Chiefs Path To Super Bowl LVII

After dominating the AFC West division, the Chiefs are here to get their hands on the coveted title. They are up against the 2018 Super Bowl champions in the blockbuster finale of the 2022 NFL season. In the last four years, this is Kansas City’s third appearance in the Super Bowl. Patrick Mahomes has the highest chance of winning the NFL MVP honors this year as he is on his way to making the Chiefs win their third Super Bowl. The 2022 NFL season has been a game-changer for Kansas City as they have now solidified themselves as one of the most dominant teams in the league. Mahomes and his ludicrous skills have transformed them into an unstoppable force. Their 14-3 record tells us that this year’s AFC West season was a walk in the park for the Eagles. They were tested in the playoffs against the Jacksonville Jaguars, where Mahomes suffered an ankle injury, but the courageous bloke re-entered the game and played a crucial role in a vital touchdown. Cincinnati Bengals made sure that the AFC Championship game was not the plainest sailing for the Eagles. Somehow Mahomes miraculously produced the best performance of his career with an injured right ankle and saved his team once again.

Let’s See If We Can Predict The Champions!

It is not easy to predict the winners so early. Kansas City is heading into the game as a bit less favorite because the team is surrounded by so many injury concerns. Their start player Patric Mahomes was limping throughout the AFC championship game. Several other players like Kafarious Toney, JuJu Smith-Schuster, and Mecole Hardman were not in their best shape while leaving the field after the game against the Bengals. The fans of all the leagues are interested in this mammoth sporting event, and we might see people wearing Boston Bruins, Dodgers, or Lakers Jacket at the stadium. In the end, everyone wants to see a closely fought competition for the big title among two of the best NFL teams. On the other hand, Philadelphia Eagles might be feeling confident after their thumping victory against the San Francisco 49ers. They would surely love to see the back of Patrick Mahomes, as that guy can be the biggest hurdle for the Eagles, even with a high-ankle sprain. Another interesting fact is that these two teams are meeting in Super Bowl for the very first time. However, the Chiefs have a 5-4 edge over the Eagles in the nine regular games they have played against each other.

The Hype Is Getting Bigger With Every Passing Day

Fox has been granted the streaming and telecasting rights, and this will be their tenth Super Bowl. It will be a battle to witness on February 12th when these two unstoppable teams will collide with each other. This face-off has a blockbuster written all over it and can potentially bring the whole stadium down with thousands of fans cheering for their favorite teams.
