Countdown to 2020 Super Bowl LIV Miami: Super Bowl LII

The matchup for Super Bowl LIV in Miami is officially set! And as the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers prepare for their matchup at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida, we’re looking back at a classic between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.

February 4, 2018

One again in a cold-weather city, the first Super Bowl in the brand-new U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota, would feature the Patriots taking on the NFC-champion Eagles. A back-and-forth offensive battle, the Eagles would put together one of the more spectacular Super Bowl performances, shutting down Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in the final minutes of the game to walk away as Super Bowl 52 champions, 41-33.

Super Bowl 52 was a record-breaking Super Bowl in many ways, including most years gained by both teams in one game (1,151), fewest combined punts (one), and most points scored by a losing team in the Super Bowl (33). Eagles quarterback Nick Foles would complete his improbable Super Bowl run with MVP honors in Super Bowl LII, finishing the game 28-of-43 for 373, three touchdowns and one interception, as well as a one-yard touchdown reception on the play dubbed the “Philly Special.”

The broadcast of the game on NBC had the smallest Super Bowl audience in nine years, with an average of 103.4 million viewers. Average TV viewership for the halftime show, headlined by Justin Timberlake, was 106.6 million American television viewers, 9 percent less than the previous year.
