Everything You Need to Know for Super Bowl LI
With only one football game left on the calendar, what better way to close out the season than carbin’ up and drinking some delicious brews?

SUPER BOWL SUNDAY
Between the game, commercials and Lady Gaga’s halftime performance, there isn’t much time to pull yourself away from the TV. Especially if you’re….UGH…. watching away from home.
But if you want to join our conversation, follow GuysGirl on Twitter for live reactions to the game, commercials and more using the hashtag #GGSuperBowl.
Monday after the game, we’ll break down all the action live on Facebook and Periscope. Plus, we’ll be on with First Coast News on ‘The Chat’ to talk about how marketing agencies from all over the country approached this year’s commercials.
Super Bowl LI marks the year the NFL returns to roman numerals after last year’s 50th anniversary of the most watched television show on the planet.
This year, Tom Brady’s Patriots face off against Matt Ryan’s Falcons down in Houston, Texas with a 6:30pm EST kickoff on FOX.
Earlier this week on Helmets and Heels, Jordan, a lifelong Falcons fan, debated Donna, a lifelong Patriots fan, and things got pretty interesting. You can watch that debate here starting around the 46-minute mark.
But if you’re looking for the TL;DR preview for this game, just know Tom Brady’s Patriots are a field goal favorite armed with the number one ranked defense going up against the Falcons led by MVP Matt Ryan and his number one ranked offense.
Outside of the Green Bay vs. Dallas game, it’s been a less-than-stellar playoffs for the NFL after suffering double digit ratings drop earlier this season. Here’s hoping the Falcons and Pats will help us forget about those lackluster games and ratings.
