Everything you need to know for the Super Bowl. Oh wow, we’re almost to the Super Bowl.

In case you’ve somehow made it this far without being aware of what time the Super Bowl is, we’re here to help. Hey, life’s busy.

The Atlanta Falcons are taking on the New England Patriots tonight in a battle of America’s Team and, you know, the Patriots. New England is in their ninth Super Bowl as a franchise, while the Falcons are in just their second and seeking their first ever championship win.

Atlanta’s got a couple of injury issues heading into this game, but otherwise they’re the same destructive force that has dismantled a bunch of teams en route to the Super Bowl. New England will be perhaps their stiffest test of the entire season—this is for the Lombardi, after all—but Atlanta’s shown they won’t wilt under the lights and against tough opponents. I’m bullish on waking up tomorrow with my favorite team as Super Bowl champions, and I hope you are too.

Here’s what you need to know, everyone. Game’s only 11 hours away.
