Innes P Superbowl 2018 Guide


National Anthem: Earlier this month, the NFL announced P!nk as the national anthem performer at this year's Super Bowl. It will be her first time performing on the Super Bowl stage. Half Time Show: Justin Timberlake will headline the Pepsi Super Bowl LII Halftime Show at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota on Sunday, Feb. 4, 2018. Timberlake has won ten Grammys and numerous other awards. This will be Timberlake's third time performing on the Super Bowl Halftime stage, giving him the distinction of having the most appearances by an individual entertainer. He previously performed at Super Bowls XXXV and XXXVII. Super Bowl LII marks Pepsi's sixth year as title sponsor of the Super Bowl Halftime Show and 16th year as an NFL partner. Host City: Super Bowl 52 will be played in Minneapolis at U.S. Bank Stadium, which will have just finished hosting its second Minnesota Vikings season after being built in time for the 2016 NFL season. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced in May of 2014 that Minnesota and its new stadium would host the Super Bowl in 2018. The stadium seats 66,200 but can be expanded to fit up to 70,000 people. The game will be the first Super Bowl in Minnesota since Super Bowl XXVI, when the Washington Redskins defeated the Buffalo Bills, 37-24, on Jan. 26, 1992 at The Metrodome.

This will be the Eagles' third trip to the Super Bowl, and they're still looking for their first triumph. In fact, long-suffering Philly fans last enjoyed an NFL championship in 1960, six years before the first Super Bowl. Making matters worse, the other three teams in the NFC East (Cowboys, Giants, Redskins) have combined for 12 wins on Super Sunday. This seemed like a special "Iggles" squad when Carson Wentz looked to be on his way to an MVP season. Hopes may not have been totally dashed when he ripped up his knee in Week 14, but optimism that this may be a long-awaited team of destiny is certainly back in force now.

The Patriots are making a record 10th Super Bowl appearance (no other franchise has reached the game more than eight times) and have their sights set on a sixth Lombardi Trophy, which would tie the Steelers' all-time record. A New England win would also mark the third time a team has won the Super Bowl three times over a four-year stretch (the 1992, '93 and '95 Cowboys did it first, followed by the 2001, '03 and '04 Patriots). These Patriots would also be the first NFL team to repeat since those 2004 Pats did it ... by beating the Eagles in Super Bowl XXXIX.
