FOX is carrying the game on more than 200 U.S. stations and more than 600 radio stations will air the game. It’ll be broadcasted in over 185 countries and in 30 different languages.

In case there’s Overtime:

Steelers will call heads or tails. Both teams get a chance to have the ball once during OT, unless the team that receives the opening kickoff scores a touchdown on its initial possession, in which case it is the winner. If the team that has the ball first kicks a field goal on its initial possession, the other team has the chance to get the ball. If that team scores a touchdown on its possession, it is the winner. If the score is tied after both teams have a possession, it is then sudden death like normal OTs.

Ridiculous Prop Bets

You can re-watch commercials right after they air on YouTube, but I’m sure we’ll be posting some, too. Expect commercials from Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian, Danica Patrick and Faith Hill, amongst others. Can’t wait.

My prediction: 24-17 Packers. Lots of championship belt celebrations.

Again, share your thoughts in the comments. Have fun tonight and be safe.
