Well, the weekend is finally here and in just two short days, millions of viewers will be in front of their TV’s watching the Super Bowl XLVIII. What do you need to know about this year’s Super Bowl? Well, first off, you should probably cheer for the Broncos because Peyton Manning is phenomenal, although I’m still bitter my Saints aren’t getting their chance at the Lombardi Trophy. Also, you should know what time everything starts. I have searched the internet so that you can feel fully prepared to watch the game! Here is what I have found.

Fun Facts:

3. The Steelers and Cowboys are tied at the top with eight Super Bowl appearances each.

4. Tom Brady is tied with John Elway for the most Super Bowl starts by a quarterback with five. Brady is 3-2 in Super Bowls and Elway is 2-3
