The Super Bowl is upon us, and NFL fans can expect plenty of excitement and excitement-filled moments on Sunday.
Here’s what you need to know:1.
It’s going to be a big game: The game will be played at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, which will host the Superdome for the first time.
This year’s Super Bowl has a capacity of 16,000.2.
The field is set: New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will throw for 5,964 yards and 24 touchdowns as the Patriots claim their first championship.
The New England offense is led by quarterback Tom Savage and wide receiver Julian Edelman, and the Patriots defense is led to safety Malcolm Butler.3.
New England will be the first team to win three Super Bowls: The New York Giants will be joined by New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, respectively, in a historic four-game sweep that will be remembered as the first-ever division title sweep in the National Football League.4.
New York City will be home to the largest Super Bowl crowd: According to NBC Sports’ Live Stats, New York will have its largest Superbowl crowd ever at 8.9 million.
That will mark a record for a New York Super Bowl and the largest crowd ever for a Super Bowl in the United States.5.
Brady and Savage will be leading their teams to glory: Both Brady and the San Francisco 49ers quarterback are coming off of historic seasons.
Brady has thrown for over 3,000 yards in each of his first three seasons, and has thrown at least five touchdown passes in each game.
Savage is the fourth-leading scorer in NFL history with 6,053 yards.
The former Clemson standout has also recorded more than 300 receiving yards in a game in each Super Bowl.6.
The Patriots are the defending Super Bowl champions: The Patriots will be looking to repeat their Super Bowl title in 2016, as they will take on the Tampa Bay Bucs in the divisional round.
The two teams will play two of the final eight games to determine the division champion.
The Patriots will play in Super Bowl XLIX, which takes place on Sunday, February 4.
It will be New England’s third consecutive Super Bowl appearance, and it is the team’s first since 2013.
The team has a 5-2 record in its past five games, with the loss to the New York Jets in the first round of the AFC Championship Game in January making a return to the playoffs unlikely.7.
Tom Brady is the MVP of the Superbowl: The 49ers’ quarterback threw for 547 yards and six touchdowns against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday as the 49ers claimed their first win of the season.
Brady finished the game with 4,564 passing yards, which is tied for the second-most in the NFL.8.
New Orleans will be without safety Malcolm Brooks: The Saints are going through a roster shakeup following the departure of defensive end Olivier Vernon and safety Cameron Jordan.
New coach Sean Payton has a long history with linebacker Brooks, and he was with the Saints for four years.
The linebacker is also a fan favorite and was an honorary captain of the team in 2016.9.
Will the Patriots win?
The Patriots have already clinched the NFC East title, which would give them the best chance of a second Super Bowl berth in three years.
However, the New Orleans defense will be hard-pressed to contain New England.
The Saints defense has allowed five touchdown drives in the past two Super Bowl games.10.
Is New Orleans in good shape to face the Seahawks?
The Seahawks will look to bounce back after a disappointing loss to Carolina in the Super-Bowl.
Seattle is 3-0 in the postseason and is coming off back-to-back Super Bowl victories over the Pittsburgh Steelers and San Francisco Eagles.
The Seahawks offense is averaging 34.3 points per game and are ranked eighth in the league.11.
How will this year’s Patriots fare?
The 2016 Patriots are coming back after being one of the NFL’s worst teams in 2016 and have now made the playoffs for the third time in four seasons.
They have made it to the Super bowl every year except for 2013 and 2014.
New Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo led the Patriots to two consecutive AFC Championship Games and won a record-setting nine Super Bowl rings with the franchise.
The 2015 and 2016 Patriots teams won back-and-forth playoff series and both of those years ended with a victory for the 49er squad.12.
Will Tom Savage lead the Patriots in Superbowl LI?
The second-year quarterback has thrown six touchdown passes this season and has completed 75 percent of his passes for 4,976 yards and 26 touchdowns in the season opener.
He is completing 63.5 percent of those passes, and his touchdown-to, interception ratio is 8-to of 10.13.
Can Savage lead New England to a win?
Savage has made a habit of winning big games
