It’s here. Super Bowl Sunday has finally arrived, and with it comes all of the spectacle and pageantry that accompanies the world’s biggest single sporting event.
This year’s game pits the NFC champion Atlanta Falcons against the AFC champion New England Patriots. The two teams appear to have drastically different styles — Atlanta has a high-flying, big-play offense, while the Patriots have a more methodical offense paired with a stout defense — and this appears set to make today’s game a good one.
