Superbowl LVII will be held on February 12, 2023, in Glendale, AZ. The event will mark the end of the NFL season 2022-23. The State Farm stadium will host this season’s best: The Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs.

The field of play is said to have grass grown in Arizona instead of the artificial turf some athletes dread.[1] The non-contact injuries should be minimal or zero in Sunday’s matchup. Let’s hope for a safe and exciting game.

The Eagles ended their regular season with an impressive 14-3 record. The Chiefs’ end-of-regular-season record was the same at 14-3.

The winning team of this annual sporting event will hoist and receive the coveted (Vince) Lombardi Trophy: the goal of every NFL team at the start of the season (no matter how unlikely for some).

I’ve watched Super Bowl coverage since I was a young child. Most NFL fans I know watch even if our favorite teams haven’t made it to the dance, so to speak. Still, the celebrations of fans around the country and beyond make the Super Bowl game this coming Sunday more than just a football game. This year, recording artist and multi-music award winner Rihanna is scheduled to perform at half-time during the Super Bowl.

In four days from now, the victorious team will be able to reap the spoils of a Super Bowl win, trophy, and ring (not to mention mad bragging rights for a long while).

AFC & NFC Championship 2023

I can’t speak for every Pittsburgh Steelers fan, but there’s still football being played in the NFL on this late day in January. Even though my Pittsburgh team didn’t advance in the 2022-23’s post-NFL season, I’m still interested.

As I sit at home, eager for this day’s competition on the gridiron, I don’t have a horse in this race. I remain captivated by this sport, however.

First up today, 1/29/2023 is the NFC Championship game between the 49ers and the Eagles. Philadelphia will host San Francisco with a 3 p.m. E.S.T. kickoff.

Later today at 6:30 p.m. E.S.T., the Chiefs will host the Bengals in the A.F.C. Championship game. Cincinnati has defeated Kansas City in the last three matchups between these teams.

I’m not an analyst, so I won’t break down any stats or make predictions of how this fine Sunday will end for any of these teams. Later this evening, we’ll all know the teams that’ll meet in Super Bowl LVII on February 12, 2023, in Glendale, AZ.

What I will say is it’s a great day to watch football. These four teams have earned their spots as the NFC and AFC’s best teams this year.

Enjoy, my fellow NFL football fans!
