Grant Suneson and Michael B. Sauter 24/7 Wall Street Published 3:51 PM EST Feb 1, 2019 This Sunday, the New England Patriots will face off against the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Those looking to buy a ticket this week were looking at a bare minimum of $2,716 for a single ticket, and the average price on the secondary market, where most people purchase tickets, is $6,122 -- as of four days before game day. At the high end, a six-person private box suite can cost over $60,000. These prices could drop before game day, but this year will likely shape up as one of the most expensive Super Bowls ever. Secondary market ticket resource TicketIQ provided 24/7 Wall St. with average ticket prices for the previous eight Super Bowls as well as the current prices for the upcoming game. While a comprehensive analysis of secondary market data is only available since 2010, it appears Super Bowls played in the 21st century are the most … [Read more...] about Super Bowl 53: How ticket costs compare to most expensive Big Games

Nate Davis USA TODAY Published 6:15 AM EST Jan 23, 2019 There was a time when Super Bowl dramatics were few and far between. But for most of the past two decades, the game has usually managed to live up to its perpetual hype. As we head toward Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta, our updated all-time Super Sunday rankings (season noted in parentheses): 1. LI (2016) New England Patriots 34, Atlanta Falcons 28 (OT): This game lacked nothing. Patriots QB Tom Brady and head coach Bill Belichick cemented their legacies, each becoming the first at his respective post to earn five Super Bowl titles. But securing immortal greatness required an all-time performance. Brady threw for a then-Super Bowl record 466 yards, leading his team to 31 unanswered points and earning MVP honors a record-breaking fourth time as New England forged the greatest comeback ever on Super Sunday — Atlanta led 28-3 in the third quarter — while taking the big game into overtime … [Read more...] about Super Bowl 2019: Ranking all 52 games from best to worst
Nate Davis USA TODAY Published 6:48 AM EST Jan 22, 2019 Crafting a list of the greatest players in Super Bowl history is a near-impossible endeavor. Do you favor the biggest stars? Those who shone brightest on Super Sunday? The ones with a sustained level of excellence? While undertaking this fool's errand, we weighed each consideration, attempting to also make it representative of all positions rather than skew too heavily toward quarterbacks or offensive players who more easily show up in the box score (and MVP log). With that prologue in mind, here's our list of the 53 greatest players in Super Bowl history: 1. QB Tom Brady: The New England Patriots poster boy has more rings (5) than any other quarterback and more Super Bowl MVPs (4) than anybody. His record eight Super Bowl starts have allowed him to become the game's all-time leader in passes (357), completions (235), yards (2,576) and TDs (18). Brady aired it out for a Super Sunday record 505 yards in last season's … [Read more...] about Super Bowl’s greatest players in history: Tom Brady is clear No. 1
The New England Patriots will meet the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LII after razor-thin victories in Saturday's Conference Championship games, decided in part by a coin toss and hugely controversial refereeing decision. New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton says his team will "probably never get over" the controversial call which may have cost them a place in next month's Super Bowl in Atlanta. Los Angeles Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein nailed a 57-yard attempt to clinch a 26-23 win in overtime, though the manner in which they got the opportunity to take the kick was dubious as the referees appeared to miss a clear pass interference call on Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis towards the end of regulation time. Had the call been made, the Saints would have allowed them to run down to clock to around 10 seconds left in the game and given them field position to score a game-winning field goal. "It was as obvious a call (as could be) and how two guys can look at that and … [Read more...] about ‘Worst no-call of the 2018 season’: Rams & Patriots advance to Super Bowl LII after overtime drama
NFL playoff contenders have two chances to keep their hopes of reaching the Super Bowl alive as the season approaches the end. The AFC still boasts a range of teams with a real shot at qualifying for the wildcard and divisional rounds. Baltimore Ravens and Tennessee Titans both won in their early games yesterday, putting big pressure on the Indianapolis Colts and Pittsburgh Steelers to secure results today. If the Colts win and Steelers lose – to top-ranked side New Orleans Saints – this evening, the Steelers will be all-but eliminated. The Colts and Titans would then enter an all-or-nothing showdown next weekend to clinch a playoff spot. There are numerous permutations going into today’s games with many sides still able to be eliminated or pushed into the driving seat. The NFC is a tamer affair, with three division titles already clinched and no teams with winning records ‘in the hunt’. Express Sport has rounded up the rules for NFL playoff … [Read more...] about NFL Playoff Picture: Which teams will qualify? Who will play in Super Bowl 53?
