Plot Synopsis

As part of a merger agreement between the National Football League (NFL) and the American Football League (AFL), the first Super Bowl was played on January 15, 1967. The first three years pitted League Champions against each other. Since the merger, the Super Bowl has been played every year since 1970 between the AFC and NFC Conference Champions. The winning team earns a trophy, named the Vince Lombardi Trophy in 1970 after the former Green Bay Packer head coach died. The Pittsburgh Steelers are the winningest Super Bowl team, having won six trophies, while the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers have each won five.
AFC champion Kansas City Chiefs play NFC champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV on Sunday, February 7, 2021 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL, broadcast live by CBS, with coverage beginning at 6pm ET/3pm PT. The game can also be streamed on CBS All Access and CBS Sports. Jim Nantz and Tony Romo call the action, and they're joined by reporters Tracy Wolfson, Evan Washburn, Jay Feely, and Rules Analyst Gene Steratore.

During pregame, beginning at 6pm ET/3pm PT, Eric Church and Jazmine Sullivan will sing the national anthem, and H.E.R. will belt out "America the Beautiful." Plus, Warren "Wawa" Snipe, a Deaf rapper and recording artist, will perform the national anthem and "America the Beautiful" in American Sign Language. The half-hour pregame show also features the coin toss and team introductions.

The game kicks off at 6:30pm ET/3:30pm PT as the defending champion Chiefs, led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, take on GOAT Tom Brady, who leads the Buccaneers. Brady is appearing in his 10th Super Bowl, and he's vying for this 7th lifetime win. Mahomes is making his second (consecutive) Super Bowl appearance, trying to repeat as champ and to become the youngest quarterback to win two Super Bowls.

Known for hits like "Blinding Lights" and "The Hills," The Weeknd performs during Super Bowl halftime.
