Watch Super Bowl LVII from State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, live on Sky Sports NFL on Sunday February 12; the AFC’s Kansas City Chiefs face the Philadelphia Eagles from the NFC (Kick-Off, 11.30pm), with live coverage under way from 10pm
Last Updated: 03/02/23 5:48pm
Former NFL quarterback turned broadcaster Ryan Fitzpatrick will be part of Sky Sports’ Super Bowl LVII coverage, along with former team-mate and current Miami Dolphins star Christian Wilkins, and the UK’s own Efe Obada.
As the Kansas City Chiefs face the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII in Glendale, Arizona – live on Sky Sports NFL from 10pm ahead of a 11.30pm kick-off on Sunday February 12 – Fitzpatrick and Wilkins will join presenter Neil Reynolds in the studio from State Farm Stadium, where Obada will also form part of the star-studded cast, providing another current player’s perspective alongside Sky Sports’ Hannah Wilkes.
Completing the line-up, Phoebe Schecter, captain of the Great Britain women’s team and a former coach with the Buffalo Bills, will provide updates and give an insight into the incredible atmosphere from sideline level.
For kick-off, we’ll then hand it over to Fox Sports’ commentary duo of Kevin Burkhardt and Greg Olsen to guide you through all the in-game action.
Fitzpatrick played for nine teams over the course of a remarkable 17-year career, including the Dolphins, as well as notable stops with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New York Jets and Bills along the way.
His 34,990 career passing yards ranks as the 32nd most in league history and, along with his majestic facial hair, he is fondly remembered for providing plenty of ‘magic’ moments on the field that spawned his famous ‘Fitzmagic’ nickname.
Wilkins has just completed his fourth season with the Dolphins, with the fearsome defensive end finishing third on the team with a career-high 98 tackles, as well as registering 3.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and six pass deflections. Wilkins is also famed for his legendary shoulder bump of commissioner Roger Goodell after being selected with the 13th overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft.
Obada’s journey to the NFL is an incredible one. A graduate of the NFL’s International Player Pathway programme, Obada was the first to make a 53-man NFL roster and has now just played his fifth season in the league. The defensive end suited up for the Washington Commanders in 2022, equalling a career high with 24 tackles and also picking up four sacks on the season.
Schecter has become a regular and much-loved contributor to Sky Sports’ NFL coverage in 2022, providing her expert analysis as part of the live Sunday night line-up and when appearing as a guest on the weekly NFL Review Show and bi-weekly Her Huddle shows.

There will also be two brand new episodes of the Inside The Huddle podcast released during the week of the Super Bowl.

Meet this year’s Super Bowl finalists: Chiefs and Eagles
The Chiefs have are through to a third Super Bowl in the space of four years, led superbly by superstar quarterback and league MVP favourite Patrick Mahomes.
Mahomes set a new record for the most offensive yds (5,614) in NFL history during the 2022 regular season – breaking down as 5,250 passing yards, 358 rush yards and six receiving – while he then saw his Chiefs past the Jacksonville Jaguars and Cincinnati Bengals in the playoffs, despite being hampered by an ankle injury.
Kansas City lifted the Vince Lombardi Trophy on their first visit to the Super Bowl in 50 years when they beat the San Francisco 49ers to cap the 2018 season, with Mahomes named MVP after engineering a comeback from 20-10 down midway through the fourth quarter, though they missed the chance to go back-to-back when beaten by Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the big game the following year.
The Eagles, meanwhile, held the NFL’s best record for the majority of the season, having served as the league’s last remaining undefeated team until they were taken down by the Washington Commanders in Week 10.
A further five-game winning run followed before back-to-back defeats – to the Dallas Cowboys and the New Orleans Saints – during an injury absence to their star quarterback Jalen Hurts that threatened to undo all of their hard work prior.
No fear, as Hurts returned to put things right with a season-ending win over the Giants, before they easily overcame the same opposition 38-7 in the divisional round of the playoffs and then ran out similarly convincing winners over the 49ers in the NFC Championship game.
The Eagles won their only Super Bowl title five years ago, running out 41-33 winners over Brady and the New England Patriots in an epic encounter. Though up until their lone triumph in the 2017 season, they had made the Super Bowl only once prior, in 1980 – losing to the Raiders – and otherwise endured 29 postseason-less years from 1960 until the turn of the millennium.
What else do we know about Super Bowl LVII?
This year’s Super Bowl will be the 57th in the history of the NFL. It is to be held at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, on Sunday February 12.
The stadium, home to the Arizona Cardinals, has a capacity of approximately 73,000 and has played host to two Super Bowls previously – both epic encounters.
The New York Giants defeated the Patriots 17-14 in the first of those, to cap the 2007 season, as David Tyree’s famous ‘helmet catch’ helped deny Brady and the Patriots a perfect, undefeated campaign. Then, seven years later, New England were back again and this time ran out 28-24 winners over the Seattle Seahawks after Malcolm Butler’s incredible interception on the goal line in the final throes of the game.
The Los Angeles Rams defeated the Bengals 23-20 in last year’s title game, while the Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers share the record for the most Super Bowl wins, with six. Brady, however, tops the lot. He has more Super Bowl victories than any one team, with seven to his name.
Rihanna will perform at this year’s Super Bowl half-time show, having previously declined the invitation in 2019 in a show of solidarity with former player Colin Kaepernick, who left the league two years earlier after he began to take a knee during the pre-game national anthem in protest at racial injustice in the US.
Last year’s half-time show was headlined by Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J Blige, and Kendrick Lamar, along with a surprise guest appearance by 50 Cent. Notable performers in the past include The Rolling Stones, Coldplay, Beyonce and Katy Perry.
Road to the Super Bowl: What happened in the NFL playoffs?
The NFL is made up of 32 competing teams which are separated into two conferences: the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC).
The AFC and NFC are then further divided by region to comprise four divisions with four teams each: AFC East, North, South and West and NFC East, North, South and West.
NFL division-by-division breakdown
- AFC East: Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, New York Jets
- AFC North: Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers
- AFC South: Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans
- AFC West: Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Las Vegas Raiders, Los Angeles Chargers
- NFC East: Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Commanders
- NFC North: Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings
- NFC South: Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
- NFC West: Arizona Cardinals, Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks
At the end of the regular season, a total of 14 teams advanced to the playoffs, including the teams with the best record in each of the respective four divisions per conference, plus a further three ‘wild card’ teams determined by which teams owned the next-best records in each conference.
Confirmed NFL playoff picture
|Kansas City Chiefs (14-3)||1 (division winners)||Philadelphia Eagles (14-3)|
|Buffalo Bills (13-3)||2 (division winners)||San Francisco 49ers (13-4)|
|Cincinnati Bengals (12-4)||3 (division winners)||Minnesota Vikings (13-4)|

|*Super Bowl finalists in BOLD|
The No 1 seeds in each conference (the two teams with the best win-loss records in the AFC and NFC) received a first-round bye, while the No 2 seeds hosted the No 7 seeds, the No 3 seeds hosted the No 6 seeds and the No 4 seeds hosted the No 5 seeds on Super Wild Card Weekend to open the postseason.
The No 1 seeds – this year’s Super Bowl finalists, the Chiefs (AFC) and Eagles (NFC) – entered the fold during the subsequent Divisional Round. They then hosted the lowest remaining seed from their respective conferences, while the second-lowest remaining seed visited the second-highest remaining seed from the winners of the wild card round.
The respective winners of those two match-ups then met in the Conference Championship games, in effectively the semi-finals for the Super Bowl.
