What to expect at Super Bowl LVII

by The Grio

The Super Bowl is on Sunday; as usual, it’s a big deal. Taking place at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, millions will tune in on Fox, hoping for some fireworks.

The National Football League’s (NFL) annual championship game is among the most watched events on television each year. This is because of the exciting matchups between the teams, the anticipated commercial ads and the halftime entertainment.

For Super Bowl LVII, there are plenty of reasons to tune in. While the bout between AFC champion Kansas City Chiefs and the NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles is bountiful with subplots, the pageantry surrounding the big game is exciting, particularly for Black viewers.

Here’s what to look out for during Super Bowl LVII.

First Matchup Of Two Black Quarterbacks

Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Eagles’ quarterback Jalen Hurts make history on Sunday. Super Bowl LVII is the first to feature two Black starting quarterbacks. To add more intrigue, Mahomes won the NFL’s Most Valuable Player award this week, beating out Hurts, who finished in second place.

Before Sunday games, only seven Black quarterbacks in NFL history have started during a Super Bowl: Doug Williams (Washington Redskins), Steve McNair (Tennessee Titans), Donovan McNabb (Philadelphia Eagles), Colin Kaepernick (San Francisco 49ers), Russell Wilson (Seattle Seahawks), Cam Newton (Carolina Panthers) and Mahomes.

Mahomes Going For Second Super Bowl Win

Super Bowl LVII is Mahomes third trip to the big game in an impressive four-year span. He and the Chiefs won Super Bowl LIV against the San Francisco 49ers in 2020 but lost Super Bowl LV the following season against the Tom Brady-led Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Should the Chiefs win on Sunday, he’ll become the only Black quarterback with multiple Super Bowl wins.
