The teams have been chosen and the big game is just around the corner. The Super Bowl is inarguably the biggest sporting event in America. Each year seems to outdo the previous year with 2017’s Super Bowl raking in a staggering 111-million viewers. Though our beloved Indianapolis Colts won’t be competing, Super Bowl 52 is all set to feature the reigning champion New England Patriots and the newly crowned NFC Champion Philadelphia Eagles. Taking place on Feb. 4, Super Bowl LII will feature Justin Timberlake as the halftime performer, making this year’s event all the more exciting.
