How to fill out Super Bowl squares: How they work, printable template, rules and format explained

0 Comments

Super Bowl LIV is finally here, and the long-anticipated matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers could end up going either way with Patrick Mahomes and Jimmy Garoppolo leading the way for their respective clubs. In turn, bets could play out in interesting ways to kick off the decade.

The Super Bowl has a variety of things that may attract casual fans. Super Bowl squares is becoming one of the more prominent aspects.

Here’s how it works and how to win.

What are Super Bowl squares and what is the format?

Each player gets a board that features 10 rows and 10 columns, adding up to 100 squares. One of the teams will be assigned the rows, while the other team will be assigned the columns. After that, the numbers between zero and nine are randomly chosen for each row and column, which allows for every possible score combination.

Who gets which squares depends on the pool you enter. Some pools randomly assign squares, while others auction off certain spots or allow players to buy as many squares as they want per quarter.

How do Super Bowl squares and numbers work? How do I win?

Each square has a corresponding row and column number. At the end of each quarter, players will look to see if those two numbers match the end digits of each team’s point total. For example, if the score at the end of the second is Chiefs 14, 49ers 3, then the player with the square that corresponds with four for Kansas City and three for San Francisco.

Which pool players are playing in determines the pay out. Some pools pay out at the end of every quarter, or the halftime or final scores could also determine who wins.

Where can I find a template for Super Bowl squares?

NBC Sports has provided a template, complete with a 10 by 10 grid and the Chiefs assigned the rows and 49ers the columns. Fans can either print templates or email them out to fellow players.

The final game of the 2022 NFL season will take place on Sunday when the Philadelphia Eagles take on the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII. For the more casual fan, the Super Bowl can provide a great opportunity to spend time with friends and family, enjoy some game day eats and take in the competition without the stress Philly and Kansas City die-hards will likely be feeling. For those of you who haven’t been glued to the standings all season, here’s a cheat sheet guide for all the basics ahead of Super Bowl Sunday.

When and where is Super Bowl LVII?

  • Date: Sunday, February 12
  • Where: State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona
  • Time: 6:30 p.m. ET
  • TV Network: Fox

Who is playing in Super Bowl LVII?

The Philadelphia Eagles will face the Kansas City Chiefs. Both teams finished the regular season with a 14-3 record, which was tied for the best record in the NFL.

Who are the quarterbacks for both teams?

Jalen Hurts, 24, is the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles and Patrick Mahomes, 27, is the starting quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs. This year marks the first Super Bowl in history with two Black starting quarterbacks. 

Who are the head coaches for both teams?

The Kansas City Chiefs are led by Andy Reid, who actually got his start as an NFL coach with the Eagles in 1999. Reid coached the Eagles from 199-2012, and that 14-season span makes him the longest-tenured HC in franchise history. He’s had plenty of continued success since moving to Kansas City – this is the third Super Bowl appearance in the last four seasons for the Chiefs.

The Eagles head coach is Nick Sirianni, from Jamestown in Western New York. He’s in his second season as Philadelphia’s head coach and is hoping to get them their first Super Bowl victory since 2017. Ahead of Super Bowl Sunday, NBC Sports’ Peter King rode to work with Sirianni to get his take on this season, his roster, and his own history with Reid. You can read more from that interview in this week’s Football Morning in America.

Who is performing at halftime of the Super Bowl?

This year, nine-time Grammy Award winner Rihanna will take center stage for the halftime show.

When was the last time the Eagles or Chiefs won the Super Bowl?

The Eagles have won one Super Bowl in franchise history, winning Super Bowl LII over the New England Patriots in the 2017 season.

The Chiefs have won two Super Bowls in franchise history. After beating the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IV in the 1969 season, the Chiefs had to wait 50 years before winning another Super Bowl, defeating the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV in the 2019 season.

Super Bowl 2023: Chiefs’ head coach Andy Reid set to face former team in Eagles showdown

0 Comments

Andy Reid will be looking to win his second Super Bowl as head coach of the Chiefs when Kansas City takes on the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII on Sunday, February 12. The matchup could be called a homecoming for Reid, who spent nearly a decade and a half leading the Philly faithful before landing in Kansas City. Here’s a look back at Andy Reid’s history with the Eagles before he and Patrick Mahomes face them in Sunday’s Super Bowl.

Andy Reid’s History with the Eagles

Reid got his start as an NFL head coach with the Eagles in 1999 and went on to become the longest-tenured and winningest head coach in Philadelphia franchise history. Reid spent 14 seasons as the Eagles’ head coach (1999-2012) and won 140 games with the team (including playoffs). The Eagles reached the playoffs in nine of 14 seasons under Reid, winning six NFC East division titles in that time.

While Reid led the Eagles to the NFC Championship Game in four straight seasons from 2001 to 2004, the Eagles reached just one Super Bowl under Reid, losing against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXIX in the 2004 season.

Now in his 10th season as the Chiefs’ head coach, Reid has seen even more success in Kansas City. The Chiefs won a seventh-straight AFC West division title this season and will be playing in their third Super Bowl in four seasons. Reid got his first Super Bowl win as a head coach in the 2019 season when the Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV.

Super Bowl LVII marks the first-ever playoff meeting between the Chiefs and Eagles. Reid, whose 21 career playoff wins are 2nd-most by a head coach in NFL history behind only Bill Belichick (31), has won all three of his regular season meetings against Philadelphia as the Chiefs’ head coach.
