What you need to know about the 2022 Super Bowl, which will be played this Sunday between the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams, teams looking to lift the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
What teams are playing?
The 2022 Super Bowl will be contested by the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals, after these teams managed to be the two best teams during the playoffs.
The Rams’ (12-5) road to Big Sunday began with a 34-11 Wild Card Round win over the Arizona Cardinals, before facing Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Divisional Round.
Brady and the Bucs came close to completing an epic comeback, but the work of Matthew Stafford and company was enough for the Rams to win 30-27. In the NFC Conference Championship, Los Angeles beat the San Francisco 49ers 20-17, earning a ticket to the Super Bowl.
The Bengals (10-7) playoff path led them to face the Las Vegas Raiders in the Wild Card Round, winning 26-19, and then played the Tennessee Titans in the Divisional Round, winning 19-16.
Finally, the Kansas City Chiefs were their rival in the AFC Conference Championship, with Joe Burrow leading the Bengals’ comeback to win 27-24 and return to a Super Bowl, which they had not done since 1989.
What time it will start?
Super Bowl LVI kickoff is scheduled for Sunday, February 13 at 3:30 p.m. PT/6:30 p.m. ET.
What channels will broadcast/stream the game?
Super Bowl 2022 will be broadcast live on NBC, although there are also other options to watch the most anticipated NFL playoff game, such as NBC’s streaming service, as well as fuboTV (free trial) live for free and sign up for Peacock Premium ($4.95/month).
Who will perform at the Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show?
A sports and entertainment tradition is the Super Bowl Halftime Show, which this 2022 will be headlined by hip-hop and music legend Dr. Dre, who in a rare live appearance will be joined by four of the superstars he helped launch their careers: Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar.
“We have 11 or 12 minutes to go out and do something spectacular, we have to figure out, creatively, how we’re gonna blow people’s minds,” Dr. Dre said last October.
