Super Bowl LVII Game Notes


The game was quick to earn the colloquial names Andy Reid Bowl and Kelce Bowl. It will also feature two black starting quarterbacks for the first time.

As the designated home team in the Super Bowl’s annual rotation between the two conferences, the Eagles chose to wear their green home jerseys. The Chiefs will wear their white jerseys. Neither team has announced which color pants will be worn.

As the designated home team, the Eagles will practice at the host team Arizona Cardinals’ practice facility the week leading up to the game. The Chiefs will practice at Arizona State University. Both venues are located in Tempe, Arizona.

The game has informally been referred to as ”The Andy Reid Bowl”, as Chiefs head coach Andy Reid had previously served as the head coach of the Eagles from 1999 to 2012. Reid became the fifth head coach to face his former team in the Super Bowl, joining Weeb Ewbank (Super Bowl III), Dan Reeves (XXXIII), Jon Gruden (XXXVII), and Pete Carroll (XLIX).

The game has also been referred to as ”The Kelce Bowl”, as this will mark the first Super Bowl to feature brothers playing against each other: Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and Eagles center Jason Kelce.

The game will be the first Super Bowl between two black starting quarterbacks: Patrick Mahomes of the Chiefs and Jalen Hurts of the Eagles.

Broadcasting

Super Bowl LVII will be televised by Fox and marks the final game to be broadcast under the current NFL television contract. Fox will air the season premiere of Next Level Chef as its lead-out program. The game will also be available via streaming to mobile devices on NFL+. The game will be available in Spanish on Fox Deportes.

This will be the first Super Bowl assignment for Fox’s broadcast team of Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen, who replaced Joe Buck and Troy Aikman after they departed for ABC/ESPN and Monday Night Football. Erin Andrews and Tom Rinaldi will be the sideline reporters and Mike Pereira will be the rules analyst.
