How to watch Eagles vs. Patriots in Super Bowl LII

6 Comments

NBC is set to broadcast Super Bowl LII on Sunday, Feb. 4, from U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minn., between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots. NBCSports.com is home to all the news, videos, analysis, features, breakdowns, predictions, and much more for the big game.

The Patriots and superstar quarterback Tom Brady are seeking back-to-back Super Bowl titles and their sixth in 10 tries (eight trips with Brady), while the Eagles, led by backup-turned-starter Nick Foles, seek their franchise’s first in their third attempt. Making this matchup even more intriguing is that it is a rematch of Super Bowl XXXIX, which saw New England emerge victorious over Philadelphia, 24-21, and the Eagles haven’t been back since.

The AFC has won the last three Super Bowls and four of the last five, including last year’s miraculous 25-point rally by the Patriots to beat the Falcons 34-28 in overtime for the largest comeback in Super Bowl history. Overall, the NFC owns a slim 26 to 25 lead over the AFC when it comes to all-time Super Bowl victories.

On top of seeing the AFC and NFC champions battle it out for the right to hoist the Lombardi Trophy, a special halftime performance will be put on by Justin Timberlake and Pink will sing the National Anthem before kickoff.

Will Timberlake achieve his goal and get announcer Al Michaels to “shake his booty?”

How to watch NFL Honors on NBC

Prior to the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots facing off for the right to hoist the Lombardi Trophy at Super Bowl LII on Sunday night (for more on the big game, NBCSports.com has you covered), a different kind of hardware needs to be awarded.

NFL Honors — which airs Saturday, the eve of Super Bowl LII, at 9 p.m. ET on NBC — will present a number of awards, including NFL MVP, Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year, Offensive Player of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, Offensive Rookie of the Year, Defensive Rookie of the Year, Comeback Player of the Year, and many more.

It looks to be a two-man race between Patriots QB Tom Brady and Rams RB Todd Gurley for NFL MVP. Will Brady win his third MVP on the eve of going for his sixth Super Bowl title or will Gurley win his first?

The 2018 Hall of Fame class will also be introduced for the first time. Finalists include WR Isaac Bruce, DB Brian Dawkins, LB Ray Lewis, DB John Lynch, WR Randy Moss, WR Terrell Owens, and LB Brian Urlacher, among others.

How to watch Super Bowl LII Opening Night

Super Bowl Opening Night is the first opportunity for the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles to interact with the media ahead of Super Bowl LII. The event will take place at the Xcel Energy Center in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Starting at 8 p.m. ET, you can stream it live on NBCSports.com or the NBC Sports app.

For the second year in a row, members for both teams will be together on one stage in front of the media and fans. The event will also feature both participating teams’ cheerleaders and mascots, along with a number of Minnesota Vikings legends.

Last year’s inaugural Opening Night featured Simone Biles interviewing players twice her size, Kel Mitchell dressed as his character Ed from Good Burger, interviews with a chicken leg instead of a microphone and plenty of selfies.

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is not expected to be in attendance, as he is still in the NFL’s concussion protocol. This is an event that seems tailor-made for Gronk’s personality, but if he is unable to attend, someone else is going to have to take over. Maybe the Eagles will show up in dog masks and refuse to take them off?
