As a quick rundown, the National Football League (NFL) is one of the biggest sports leagues in the world and the Super Bowl is final game or championship. It is one of the most anticipated annual sporting events across America. The combination of football, notorious clever ads, and halftime musical performances make the Super Bowl the most viewed event on American television.
