Joe Burrows of the Bengals will meet Matt Stafford in what will be their first Super Bowl, Feb. 14 in Los Angeles.

A huge crowd of 70,000 people will cheer on their favorite team in the stands, watching the most watched TV event in the U.S. every year, the Super Bowl. Super Bowl 56 (LVI) will be played at Sofi Stadium, the new home of the Los Angeles Chargers and Rams. Every year approximately 100 million people watch the Super Bowl, that’s around ⅓ of the U.S. population. Fun fact, for the second time in a row, and a second time in NFL history, the host stadium will be the home field of a team playing in the Super Bowl. Last year is was Super Bowl 55- with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beating the Kansas City Chiefs.

Before the Super Bowl era, every year, the two teams with he best record battled it out to be Champion of the AAFC (All-American Football Conference). Then, later on, the American Football League and National Football League emerged. After that, the AAFC and NFL decided to merge, creating what we know today as the NFL. In 1966 to 1969, before the merger between the AFL and NFL, the NFL and AFL agreed to have a championship game every year called the AFL-NFL championship, later renamed to the Super Bowl in 1968. In the first ever “Super Bowl” the Green Bay Packers won the World Professional Football Championship Trophy, but after winning the second Super Bowl, the NFL and AFL decided to rename it to the Vince Lombardi Trophy, the name of the Packers coach at the time. Currently, the only teams from the AAFC are the San Francisco 49ers and the Cleveland Browns.
