The New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons are the last teams standing in the NFL. They will face off in Super Bowl LI on Feb. 5 at NRG Stadium in Houston.

The game is scheduled to start at 3:30 p.m. PT and will be broadcast on Fox.

Of course, the network’s coverage of the game starts long before that. Super Bowl-related programming begins at 8 a.m., leading up to the pregame show at 11 a.m.

The Patriots will be playing in their league-record ninth Super Bowl, and Coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady each will be appearing in the big game for a record seventh time.


Belichick could become the first head coach to win five Super Bowl rings, while Brady is looking to become the second player in NFL history to do so.

The Falcons have made it this far only one other time, losing to the Denver Broncos, 34-19, in Super Bowl XXXIII. Coach Dan Quinn was the defensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks when they won Super Bowl XLVIII. Quarterback Matt Ryan will be playing in his first Super Bowl.
