The coin toss and national anthem will take place at 6 p.m. Eastern time with Idina Menzel performing the national anthem. In addition, John Legend will be singing “America The Beautiful.”
Kickoff will go down at 6:30 p.m. Eastern, and the game will carry on until around 10:00 – 10:30 p.m. depending how the game goes. The time that halftime goes on can only be determined by how the first two quarters are played, but it generally starts between 7:30 and 8 p.m. Eastern and is usually over by 8:30 p.m.
The game will broadcast on NBC. (Click here for information on the live stream.) The Seahawks are the first team in a decade to play in consecutive Super Bowls. But it was actually the Patriots who were the last team to accomplish that — in 2004 and 2005. Last year, the Seahawks blew out the Denver Broncos to win their first title.
The Patriots, who lost to the Giants in 2008 and 2012, are making their eighth appearance in the big game and looking for their fourth title. Heavy will have live coverage of the game here.
