The big day -- and the big hour -- is nearly here. In just a matter of minutes, Super Bowl LVIII between the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers will kick off from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. This is one of the most highly anticipated Super Bowls as it features two teams battling in the big game for the second time in five seasons. Kansas City, which eyes its third Super Bowl title in that time span, ousted San Francisco in an epic fourth-quarter comeback in Super Bowl LIV, 31-20. It wouldn't surprise anyone if this year's Super Bowl goes down to the final possession. 

Super Bowl LVIII will kick off at 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS, Nickelodeon and Paramount+ from Las Vegas. Prior to kickoff for this year's Super Bowl, get set for the NFL championship game by turning into CBS or Paramount+ for THE NFL TODAY pregame show. 

THE NFL TODAY will provide pregame, halftime and postgame coverage, anchored by James Brown, who is hosting the Super Bowl pregame show for a record 11th time, alongside analysts Phil Simms, Bill Cowher, Nate Burleson, Boomer Esiason and JJ Watt, lead NFL insider Jonathan Jones, as well as Ian Eagle, Charles Davis, Matt Ryan, Jason McCourty and others.
