It’s finally here, the Super Bowl has arrived and the Philadelphia Eagles are looking to capture yet another ring over a presumed titan.
Last time around the Eagles upset the Tom Brady-led New England Patriots with Nick Foles — one of the best moments in Philly sports history. The Eagles are technically betting favorites in the game, but any time Patrick Mahomes is on the other side of the field it’s hard to consider the gap too wide for Kansas City to clear.
Jalen Hurts clashing with Mahomes is the headline act of a Super Bowl that should be entertaining from top to bottom. Rihanna is performing at the halftime show, which might be the reason a majority of the audience will be tuning in, and it’s admittedly a pretty darn good reason to watch.
But this Super Bowl is all about the Eagles and Chiefs, and what happens in the game could dictate the future of both teams. There are rumors that Andy Reid could retire if Kansas City wins, leaving the Chiefs without its key offensive architect. Depending on what happens with the Eagles, there’s a chance a win in the Super Bowl could guarantee a massive contract extension for Hurts to pay him like the best quarterback in the entire league.
What time does the Super Bowl start today?
Because the Super Bowl is the most special game of the year, it has the most unique start time. This isn’t a normal Sunday, it’s the Sunday that all teams play the rest of the year to have the honor of playing on.
Super Bowl 57 will start at 6:30 pm ET, and will simulcast across the world at whatever local time lines up with that.
- Date: Sunday, February 12th
- Start Time: 6:30 pm ET / 5:30 pm CT
- Stadium: State Farm Stadium
- Location: Glendale, AZ
How to watch the Super Bowl: TV channel and live stream
Each year the three major networks rotate the rights to broadcast the Super Bowl. Last year NBC broadcast the game in what was the send-off for Al Michaels after years in the broadcast booth for Sunday Night Football. He isn’t gone forever, though, as he signed a deal to be the voice of Amazon’s Thursday Night Football and he returns to NBC on occasion.
FOX will broadcast the game this year, but there will be new voices on the call. Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen will be on the call, which is the first time since the John Madden-Pat Summerall era that Joe Buck and Troy Aikman won’t be calling the Super Bowl for FOX.

Tom Brady won’t be on the call, though, despite some rumors that he might be joining the booth. He signed a $375 million deal with FOX to join its top broadcasting team, which might mean this is one of the final times we’ll be hearing Olsen announce a major game for FOX.
