Where Will Super Bowl LVII Be Played?
Super Bowl LVII will be played at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. State Farm Stadium is home to the Arizona Cardinals of the NFC West. As a general point of interest, this is the first time since 2020 that one of the teams in the Super Bowl aren’t getting the opportunity to play in their home stadium. The first 54 Super Bowls never saw a team play in their home stadium, but the last two Super Bowls have broken that trend. Super Bowl 55 saw the Tampa Bay Buccaneers win the Super Bowl in their home stadium (Raymond James Stadium), and Super Bowl 56 saw the Los Angeles Rams win the Super Bowl at SoFi Stadium, the field that they share with the Los Angeles Chargers. While the home team streak ended this year, Super Bowl 58 is set to be held in Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, the home of the Las Vegas Raiders. We will have to see if the Raiders can start a new streak next season.
Who Is Performing at the Super Bowl This Year?
The NFL announced that Rihanna will be providing the halftime entertainment this season. She’s not the only big-name artist performing, as country superstar, Chris Stapleton will be performing the National Anthem before kickoff.
Who is Playing in the Super Bowl?
Each year, the AFC Champions and the NFC Champions face off in the Super Bowl. This season, the AFC Champions were the Kansas City Chiefs while the NFC Champions were the Philadelphia Eagles. Both teams went into the playoffs as the top seeds in their conference. They also had identical records, as both squads went 14-3 in the regular season.
Interesting Stories in Super Bowl LVII
There are a few fun storylines to keep an eye on going into the Super Bowl. First of all, some sports analysts are jokingly referring to this game as the Andy Reid Bowl. Andy Reid, who is the incredibly successful coach of the Kansas City Chiefs, landed his first head coaching job with the Philadelphia Eagles in 1999. He spent 14 years as the head coach of the Eagles and took them to the Super Bowl one time. Reid also had an incredible run in Philadelphia between 2001 and 2004, as he guided the Eagles to four consecutive NFC Championship Games. After struggling to a 4-12 record in 2012, the last season of his contract, it was announced that Reid would not be offered a new contract to remain in Philadelphia.

Reid’s unemployment didn’t last long, as he was named the new head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs on January 4, 2013. Now in his tenth season as the Chiefs’ head coach, Reid has made the playoffs 9 times, including eight consecutive trips to the postseason. Reid guided the Chiefs to the top of the mountain in Super Bowl LIV, his first as a head coach. While Reid will undoubtedly say that it’s a non-story, it’s safe to assume that he will be looking to exact a bit of revenge on the team who decided that he wasn’t the answer and moved on from him after an impressive 14-year run.
The Scene That Took 'I Dream of Jeannie' off Air
There are also some family ties in the Super Bowl, as Super Bowl LVII will mark the first time that brothers have faced off against one another in the biggest game of the season. Travis Kelce, the tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, is widely considered the best at his position in the league. In fact, after his performance in this season’s playoffs, many are starting to say that Kelce is the best tight end in the history of the league. They certainly have a lot of evidence to support their claims.
Travis Kelce won’t see the field at the same time as his brother, but the two are still facing off. Jason Kelce is the All-Pro center for the Philadelphia Eagles. Both of the Kelce brothers are among the best at their positions, and both have earned multiple All-Pro awards. As an interesting note, each of the Kelce brothers currently has one Super Bowl ring. You would have to assume that there will be some friendly banter at the family dinner table when one of them walks away with a second. The Kelce brothers host a podcast together, so you should certainly check it out between now and Super Bowl Sunday, as it’s guaranteed to provide some great insight and some quality entertainment.
Who Is Going to Win Super Bowl LVII?
While the Philadelphia Eagles punched their ticket to Super Bowl LVII after a high-powered offensive showing against the San Francisco 49ers in a game that they won 38-7, the Eagles defense is actually what they’re known for. The Eagles defense was not only near the top of the league this season in sacks, yards allowed, and points allowed, but they also forced 17 interceptions and 10 fumbles. Their 27 total turnovers put them near the top of the league in that area as well. Jalen Hurts, the Eagles QB, and his cast of receivers are certainly formidable, but the Eagles defense will likely determine if they win or lose Super Bowl LVII.
27 Flight Attendant Secrets That You Had No Idea About
As much as the Eagles’ defense is the talk of the town, the Kansas City Chiefs’ offense is one of the most feared in the NFL. That’s certainly not a surprise as Andy Reid is considered one of the leading offensive minds in the history of the league. In addition to Reid’s ability to lead a high-powered offense, having Patrick Mahomes at quarterback certainly doesn’t hurt. Mahomes has already won one MVP award, and most insiders believe he’s in position to win it again this season. It wouldn’t be a surprise, as Mahomes led the league in passing yards, touchdowns, and quarterback rating this season.
It has been said that “defense wins championships,” but many are wondering if that will be the case in Super Bowl LVII. This game is set up to be a classic battle between a potent offense and a vaunted defense. The Chiefs like to throw the ball a lot, and the Eagles were second in the NFL in quarterback sacks this season. The team that wins this game will likely be the team that manages to shut down what the other side does best. It’s hard to say who will blink first, but we can safely assume that the Chiefs and the Eagles will likely put on one of the best games that we’ve seen in years.
