After one more game, we’ll finally be ready to crown the 2017 NFL champions. That’ll happen after the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots take on the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII on Feb. 4 in Minnesota.
Despite being home underdogs, the Eagles routed the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC title game. Meanwhile, the Patriots enter the big game off a thrilling, comeback victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Championship.
The Eagles opened as 5.5-point underdogs (what else is new, they’ve been underdogs in every playoff game so far) and are now listed as either 4 or 4.5-point underdogs at most spots while the Patriots moneyline has continued to sink since it opened.
Here’s everything you need to know for the 2018 Super Bowl, including how to watch the big game and who will be performing at halftime as well as who will be singing the national anthem.

Who will perform at halftime?
Justin Timberlake will handle Super Bowl LII halftime duties! The former NSYNC star, who has morphed into one of the most diverse and dynamic performers in music and movies, will be looking to end up somewhere high on this list. Timberlake hasn’t been on the stage for the Super Bowl since his famous wardrobe malfunction with Janet Jackson after the 2003 season. More than a decade later, he returns.
