After a thrilling and exciting Championship Weekend of the 2015 NFL Playoffs, the stage is now set for Super Bowl XLIX in Glendale, Arizona, in two weeks. The NFC Championship was decided first and it went to the Seattle Seahawks in a great come-from-behind victory. The New England Patriots started fast in the AFC Championship Game, and were then able to hold off the Indianapolis Colts. Super Bowl XLIX is coming, but do you know when and how to watch?
Super Bowl XLIX is scheduled for February 1, and it will take place at the University of Phoenix Stadium between the Seattle Seahawks from the NFC and New England Patriots from the AFC. It will be the second Super Bowl played in the stadium, per AZ Super Bowl.
Kickoff time is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. MST and that will be 6:30 p.m. EST. on NBC, and that means commercials will begin at that time too. Although, you can likely catch a few airing during the pre-game shows, which will happen all day.
For those wondering, Idina Menzel will be singing the National Anthem while John Legend will sing “America The Beautiful,” as announced by Forbes.
Seattle booked their return trip to the Super Bowl with a 28-22 come-from-behind overtime victory over Green Bay. After the game, Seahawks’ quarterback Russell Wilson was extremely emotional and spoke of how his team just didn’t give up.

Things weren’t so close as the Patriots demolished the Colts and Tom Brady set a record by returning to the Super Bowl for the sixth time as a starting quarterback. This was expected to be competitive, but the Patriots were just much for the Colts and blew them out by the final score of 45-7.
