One of the most highly-anticipated Super Bowl matchups in recent years is finally upon us. The Tom Brady-led New England Patriots hope to bounce back from last year’s disappointing loss as they face off against the Los Angeles Rams (and their league-best record) at Super Bowl LIII on Sunday in Atlanta.
CBS is projecting huge numbers for the game, which moves to the network from NBC. The Philadelphia Eagles beat the Patriots in last year’s game, which averaged 103.4 million viewers for the Peacock. That marked a drop of approximately 7% from the 2017 Super Bowl, and made Super Bowl LII the least-watched Super Bowl since 2009.
This year’s game kicks off at 3:30 p.m. PT/6:30 p.m. ET from inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Patriots are currently the odds-on favorite to take home the trophy, though the Rams carry the better season record into the game. As previously announced, Maroon 5 will headline the Super Bowl halftime show (stream their latest album here), with confirmed guests Travis Scott and Big Boi. Gladys Knight will perform the national anthem, while Atlanta natives and Grammy-nominated sister singing duo Chloe x Halle will sing “America the Beautiful.”
