[dropcap]S[/dropcap]uper Bowl 50 is this Sunday, Feb. 7 and many fans can’t wait to watch the one of the most anticipated games of the year. It will be the Carolina Panthers who will face the Denver Broncos in Levi’s Stadium, San Francisco. Fans all over the country are craving for these teams to fight it out over the championship.
Cam Newton (26 Years old) is now seeking his 1st Super Bowl ring while Peyton Manning (39 Years old) is looking for his 2nd ring before his possible retirement. While those 2 people battle it out, the New England Patriots and the Arizona Cardinals will have to enjoy the game from the sidelines as they were eliminated by both teams.
The Arizona Cardinals were completely blown out by the Panthers 49-15 in the NFC Championship by the end of the 4th quarter. Cards fans were stunned while the AFC Championship game was battled out in a close one in Denver. Although New England fought a hard game by making a last minute touchdown, they were not able to secure a tie by the end of the game and lost by just two points.
With the Super Bowl now in sights the two teams are set to fight it out for the grand prize in the NFL, the Vince Lombardi Trophy. As these teams have two weeks to prepare for the game, the other two teams can only review where they went wrong and practice during the offseason to make sure it does not happen again. “I feel like it’s my fault, I’m sure all the other players who played feel like it’s their fault,” said Stephen Gostkowski, Patriots Kicker.
Although many find the Super Bowl to be the most anticipated game of the year, some do not feel the same as others when it comes to the game of football.
“I only watch it for the commercial’s, that’s just about it,” said Jesse Furlow, local student.
Many appear to have their opinions about football and sports in general.
“Sometimes they are ok to watch [and] other times it gets boring to me”.
Whether you are a fan of football or not, you can guarantee there will be millions tuning on to the sports network on 7 February to watch one of the most anticipated sports game of the year.
According to International Business Times (IBT), “the 2015 Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks set a new mark, averaging 114.4 million viewers per minute on NBC’s Sunday night broadcast, becoming the most watched event in American TV history.”
