What is Super Bowl
The Super Bowl is the biggest and most important American football game of the year. It’s the annual championship game of the National Football League (NFL), pitting the league’s two best teams against each other.
This year’s game will be played on Sunday, February 3, 2019 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.
How does Super Bowl work
The two teams that make it to the Super Bowl are determined by a playoff system. Throughout the NFL season, each team plays 16 regular season games. At the end of the season, the eight teams with the best records in each conference (the NFC and AFC) advance to the playoffs.
The playoffs are a single-elimination tournament, meaning if a team loses, they’re out. The four remaining teams in each conference play each other in the divisional round, and the two winners advance to the conference championships. Finally, the two conference champions face off in the Super Bowl.
How can I watch Super Bowl
The game will be broadcast on CBS, with kickoff scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET. You can also stream the game online through CBS Sports or the CBS All Access app.

What are the rules in playing Super Bowl
The basic rules of American football apply in the Super Bowl. Each team has four downs (or chances) to move the ball 10 yards down the field. If they don’t, they have to punt (kick the ball) to the other team.
The team that scores the most points wins the game. Points can be scored by touchdowns (worth six points), field goals (three points) and extra points (one or two points).
Who is playing in this year’s Super Bowl
This year, the New England Patriots will face off against the Los Angeles Rams. The Patriots are led by quarterback Tom Brady, who is considered one of the best players in NFL history. The Rams are led by quarterback Jared Goff and running back Todd Gurley.
This will be the Patriots’ third consecutive Super Bowl appearance, and they’re looking to tie the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most Super Bowl wins with six. The Rams, on the other hand, haven’t been to a Super Bowl since 2002, when they lost to the Patriots.
What are the halftime show and commercials
In addition to the game itself, one of the most anticipated aspects of the Super Bowl is the halftime show. This year’s performers are Maroon 5, Big Boi and Travis Scott.
The Super Bowl is also known for its commercials, which air during the game and are some of the most expensive advertising spots on television. This year, companies like Amazon, Bud Light and Pepsi are among those that have released their commercials early.
