5 ways the Super Bowl is different this year

This year, Super Bowl LV will be very different from years past — both on the field and off.  Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs will be looking to repeat as champions, and would become only the eighth team in history to go back-to-back. Meanwhile, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be making just their second appearance, but Tom Brady steps onto the Super Bowl field for an unprecedented tenth time. If he wins, Brady will be the only player with seven championship rings, leaving little argument for his position as the greatest quarterback to ever play the game. Also of historical significance, the Buccaneers are the first team to play at home during the Super Bowl.

But what is going on off the field might be as interesting as what goes on it. With pandemic protocols in full swing across the country, this year’s Super Bowl is sure to look nothing like years past. We dug into our library of 1 million videos from premium content providers and selected just a few that showcase how Super Bowl will be very different this year. If you want these videos on your site as well as official NFL highlights, player and coach soundbites, expert analysis, and betting and fantasy previews, reach out to your SendtoNews (STN) account manager or fill out the form below for more information.
