The NFL has marketed itself — and the Super Bowl specifically — as a uniquely American event. It has become not only a celebration of the sport, but also a celebration of the country, reflecting how many Americans have now come to see it: as a truly unique spectacle.
In times of such uncertainty, this year’s Big Game helps to give a sense of normalcy. This year, the Super Bowl airs on WWL-TV live at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Fla. on Sunday, Feb. 7, 2021. Coverage kicks off with an NFL Special at 10:30 a.m. and culminates in the big game at 5 p.m.
