How to watch the NFL season kick-off game on NBC

Leave a comment

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots host Tyreek Hill and the Kansas City Chiefs to kick off the 2017 NFL season.

On the heels of a miraculous Super Bowl victory, the Patriots start off their championship defense with a few new weapons at their disposal. The additions of Brandin Cooks, Mike Gillislee and Rex Burkhead in the offseason, to go along with a healthy Rob Gronkowski will certainly lessen the blow of losing Julian Edelman for the season with a torn ACL.

The Chiefs will rely on their strong defense led by CB Marcus Peters and LB Justin Houston, but they will have their hands full. QB Alex Smith looks to methodically move the ball on offense by relying on TE Travis Kelce and Hill, who is one of the most electrifying players in the league and a threat to score every time he has the ball in his hands.

Best ads from Super Bowl LII

Leave a comment

The best Super Bowl ads made us laugh, cry, and audibly wonder how much a trip to Australia would cost.

Here are some of the best ads from Super Bowl LII:

GOAT Ad: Doritos, Mountain Dew collaboration with Peter Dinklage and Morgan Freeman rapping Busta Rhymes and Missy Elliott

Peter Dinklage and Morgan Freeman in any Super Bowl commercial was going to be epic, but having them RAP (lip sync, obviously) Busta Rhymes and Missy Elliott?! That was what Super Bowl commercials are made for.

Leaving on a Jet Plane: Australia Tourism

It’s cold on the East Coast right now and Australia looks nice and warm, so this ad should move Australia to the next spot on your vacation list. The ad referenced a “remake” of ‘Crocodile Dundee’ with Chris Hemsworth and Danny McBride, the incredible Australian wine, and stunning beaches.

Laugh Out Loud: NFL’s Dirty Dancing tribute ad

Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. had the time of their lives during Super Bowl LII, paying tribute to Dirty Dancing’s famous dance routine and acrobatic leap done by Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze.

You are, you’re a Superstar… commercial: Amazon

Amazon brought the star power to their Amazon Echo spot, with Gordon Ramsey, Cardi B, Leslie Jones, Rebel Wilson and Anthony Hopkins, filling in for a voiceless Amazon Alexa.

Get the tissues: Hyundai

Hyundai’s ad where car buyers meeting cancer patients that they helped by purchasing a car hit you right in the feels. It was obvious that every parent was on the edge of tears while watching the videos of patients saying thank you.

Get out the tissues.

Hyundai donates a certain amount of money for every car purchased to pediatric cancer research. Their Super Bowl ad featured car buyers meeting patients who benefited from their purchase.

The patients wanted to say thank you to buyers and man it got REAL dusty in a lot of living rooms around the country.
