How To Watch The Super Bowl

The Super Bowl is the moment where nearly 100 million Americans tune their attention to one channel to watch the greatest game of the year. In the past, there used to be only one way to watch – cable television. Nowadays, we have streaming services and alternatives to check into the biggest sporting event of the year. This year, you definitely won’t want to miss the game between the Cincinnati Bengals, as they try to secure their first Super Bowl Title ever, while they battle the Los Angeles Rams for the Lombardi Trophy. 

Where & When Is The Super Bowl?

The Rams are taking on the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, February 13th at 5:30 PM CST. The Los Angeles Rams won’t have to travel far to their home field, SoFi Stadium, for Super Bowl LVI. To get here, the Cincinnati Bengals defeated the reigning AFC Champs, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Rams took down the San Francisco 49ers. Both of those games were electric, so the expectations for this game have been placed very high.
