Super Bowl LVII kicks off this Sunday, Feb. 12, 3:30 pm PST, at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, AZ. This year, the Kansas City Chiefs will be facing off against the Philadelphia Eagles for the Vince Lombardi trophy.
For uniform schemes, the Eagles are considered the “home” team and will be wearing their dark green “home” uniforms, since the National Football Conference (NFC) team is always the designated home team in odd-numbered Super Bowls.
This will be Kansas City’s third championship appearance in the past three years, with their last victory taken in Super Bowl LIV. They are led by longtime head coach Andy Reid and superstar quarterback Partick Mahomes.
The Eagle’s last championship victory occurred just two years earlier in Super Bowl LII. Since then, Philadelphia has acquired a new quarterback, Jalen Hurts, as well as a new head coach, Nick Sirianni, making them a far different team than before.
One of the biggest storylines highlighted in this year’s Super Bowl is the famous Kelce brothers going head-to-head. Travis Kelce is the starting tight end for the Chiefs and is a six-time pro bowler. Jason Kelce is the center for the Eagles and is a two-time pro bowler who is often considered the backbone of the Eagles’ star-studded offensive line. Raised in Cleveland, Ohio, the brothers played football together at the University of Cincinnati and were drafted into the National Football League just two years apart. Today, the brothers co-host the “New Heights” podcast and are vocal about their sibling relationship.
The festivities for the Super Bowl have already kicked off, with media days having started Monday, Feb. 7. The highly anticipated Super Bowl Halftime Show will feature Rihanna. No matter the outcome, NFL fans are suspected to be in for an electric afternoon of championship football.
