Super Bowl LVI, or Super Bowl 56 for those who don't like Roman numerals, kicks off today, Sunday, Feb. 13 at 6:30 p.m. ET. The Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals will battle for the Lombardi Trophy on NBC.
This will be the eighth Super Bowl played in the Greater Los Angeles area but the first at SoFi Stadium, a new, state-of-the-art venue that opened in September 2020. This also means that for the second year in a row, a team will be playing in the Super Bowl in its own home stadium. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won last year's Super Bowl in Raymond James Stadium.
It's been nearly 30 years since the Super Bowl was played in the second-largest metropolitan region of the U.S., the other time being Super Bowl XXVII in 1993, which saw the Dallas Cowboys demolish the Buffalo Bills 52-17 in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.
