With the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers putting the finishing touches on their game plans for Super Bowl XLVII, the hype and build for this showdown is reaching a fever pitch. 

Everything that happens in the two weeks leading up to the game, which kicks off at 6:30 p.m. ET, actually becomes more important than anything else. The Super Bowl is the easy part of this whole thing, because it's just two teams battling to become a champion. 

As you count the hours down to kickoff, here is all the pertinent information you need to know about where you can find the game and some other little news nuggets about what is coming the rest of this week. 


Where: Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA

When: Sunday, Feb. 3 at 6:30 p.m. ET


How to watch Super Bowl XLVII

In addition to the telecast on CBS, the Super Bowl is being streamed online for free with all the commercials you will get on television by going to

If you won't be around a television or computer on Sunday, then you probably aren't a sports fan. But if there is another reason that you can't watch in front of a screen, and you are a Verizon mobile subscriber, you can watch with NFL Mobile. 

It is hard to escape the shadow of the Super Bowl, because this game is everywhere. With smart phones doing everything that they are capable of now, we can watch this monumental game in the palm of our hands. 


What to expect from Super Week

One of the great things about Super Week is there is something going on every day. Obviously, the big event of the week is Media Day on Tuesday. This is where you learn how many sports reporters are here and how many entertainment reporters are here. 

Instead of actually getting thought-provoking questions about the game, Media Day usually results in questions about an athlete's favorite member of the Kardashian family or musical artist. 

There are concerts in New Orleans throughout the week, as well as the usual debauchery you will find so close to Mardi Gras. But Media Day is the key to the whole week, because you see how few sports reporters are actually around.
