Reid coached the Eagles in Super Bowl XXXIX 13 years ago, when they lost to the Tom Brady-Bill Belichick Patriots. Pederson hopes to fare better than his mentor in the 52nd Super Bowl on Sunday. Meanwhile, the Patriots will look to accomplish a couple of things they have already accomplished: win three Super Bowls in four years, and defeat the Eagles to make it happen.
From the early-morning preview shows to Pink singing the national anthem, the festivities will be going on all day. The kickoff for Super Bowl LII is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, Feb. 4.

Who is performing for the Halftime Show?
Justin Timberlake is once again taking the Super Bowl Halftime Show stage, fourteen years after that infamous “wardrobe malfunction” forever cemented “Nipplegate” into our memories. Timberlake just dropped his new album, Man of the Woods, but many JT fans are hoping the 13-minute, multimillion dollar performance will include his biggest hits. You can safely assume he’ll at least play “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” though.
Some have speculated that Timberlake will invited Jackson onstage as an apology of sorts for the 2004 incident, but the singer squashed the idea at a press conference on Thursday.
“To be honest, I had a ton of grand ideas about special guests,” he said, per a report by CNN. “There’s a whole list I think Vegas has a lot of odds on it, I heard, from NSYNC to (Jay-Z) to Chris Stapleton to Janet (Jackson). But this year, I’m just excited. My band The Tennessee Kids, they’re my special guests.”
In addition to Timberlake’s Halftime Show, P!nk is set to help open the game with a performance of the National Anthem.
How to watch the Super Bowl on TV
If you have a digital antenna, cable, or another type of TV subscription, all you have to do is turn on your local NBC affiliate channel. This is perhaps the easiest way and the best way to enjoy the game, as you’ll likely be closest to watching it live in real-time, besides forking over thousands of dollars to physically watch it in-person.
How to stream the Super Bowl
This year, it’s way easier to live stream the Super Bowl on all of your devices than in previous years. NBC won’t require a cable or satellite TV subscription login to access its live feed of the game, so literally anyone with an internet connection in the U.S. can watch fo free on any device — computer, tablet, phone, or otherwise. Perhaps best of all, this includes the aforementioned pregame coverage.
On an Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Playstation, or other set-top devices, all you have to do is install the NBC Sports app and you should be good to go from there.
