19 Jan

It’s Super Bowl 2019 tonight as the stars of the NFL compete for the prestigious Vince Lombardi Trophy.

This year will be the 53rd edition of the showpiece event in America as the two best teams go head-to-head in Atlanta.

Super Bowl 2019: When is it? What is the UK start time?

We will have a new champion this season after the Philadelphia Eagles lost their NFC Divisional Playoff clash to the New Orleans Saints.

So here’s everything you need to know about the all-star event.

Who is playing?

The Super Bowl pits the champions of the AFC and NFC against one another in the season finale.

Last month saw the Conference Championships games take place as the Kansas City Chiefs lost to the New England Patriots in the AFC while the Los Angeles Rams beat the New Orleans Saints in the NFC.

It means Tom Brady’s Patriots and Jared Goff’s Rams will face off at the Super Bowl this evening.

The Patriots have won the Super Bowl on five occasions, most recently in 2017, while the Rams were victorious in 2000 when they were known as the St. Louis Rams.

NFL: Watch Patrick Mahomes’ outrageous no-look pass for the Kansas City Chiefs

10 Dec

Kansas City Chiefs star Patrick Mahomes has added another stand-out moment to his 2018/19 highlight reel with an outrageous no-look pass.

In football, it’s more common thanks to the likes of Ronaldinho, who also scored with no-look finishes, but in the NFL it’s not something you’re going to see so often with the chances of being intercepted so high.

Kansas City Chiefs star Patrick Mahomes in action.

Mahomes has displayed an astonishing array of weapons in his first season as a starting quarterback and his 17-yard completion to receiver Demarcus Robinson had Chiefs fans, neutrals, pundits, and NFL legend Tony Romo all enthralled during his side’s 27-24 overtime win against the Baltimore Ravens.


NFL increase London games with four to be played at Wembley and Tottenham Hotspur stadium in 2019


And not content with his stunning no-look pass, Mahomes, 23, then whipped a side-arm missile to Spencer Ware for a 24-yard gain.

Outrageous doesn’t even do justice to Mahomes, who appears set for an incredible gridiron career.
