The Super Bowl is played every year at the end of the NFL season. The winners of the AFC and NFC meet in a predetermined location to decide the overall NFL champion. The Lombardi Trophy, which is presented to the Super Bowl's winning team, is named for Vince Lombardi, the Hall of Famer who coached the Green Bay Packers from 1959 to 1967. Lombardi led the Packers to victory in the first two Super Bowls, in 1967 and 1968. After his sudden death from cancer in 1970, the trophy was named for him.

The first time Roman numerals were used to reference the game was in 1971, for Super Bowl V. Up until that point, it was simply known as a championship game. The name Super Bowl came from Kansas City Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt came up with the name after a popular toy at the time known as the Super Ball.

Americans consume more food on Super Bowl Sunday than on any other day except for Thanksgiving. The Super Bowl is consistently one of the most-watched television events of the year. As a result, advertisements are exceptionally expensive and the Super Bowl commercials also receive extensive media coverage.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has the most Super Bowl wins of any player (6) and also the most MVP awards (4). Brady and the Pats have won Super Bowls XXXVI, XXXVII, XXXIX, XLIX, LI and LIII and have appeared in nine overall.

Jerry Rice, a receiver who won three Super Bowls with the San Francisco 49ers and one with the Oakland Raiders, holds the all-time record for most points scored, with 48.

One of the best Super Bowls of all time was Super Bowl XLIX, which was played on February 1, 2015 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. The New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks were tied at 14 at halftime. The Seahawks built a 10 point lead, but then the Patriots regained momentum, and took a 28–24 lead with 2:02 left in the game. With 26 seconds remaining and Seattle driving for the winning score, New England’s Malcolm Butler—an undrafted rookie—intercepted a throw made by Seahawks’ quarterback Russell Wilson to seal the win.

Super Bowl XIII was another game for the ages. Played on Jan. 21, 1979 at the Orange Bowl in Miami, Fla., the Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Dallas Cowboys 35–31. This was a rematch of the previous Super Bowl, which gave this Big Game the feel of a heavyweight bout and added to the excitement. On the field that day were 18 people who are now enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. On the Pittsburgh side there were nine players, along with coach Chuck Noll and team owner Art Rooney Sr., and his son Dan. Dallas had five players, in addition to head coach Tom Landry, defensive coordinator Ernie Stautner and team president/general manager Tex Schramm. Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw completed 17 of 30 pass attempts and set Super Bowl records for passing yards (318 ) and touchdowns (four). Bradshaw was the game’s MVP.
