The Super Bowl 56 game isn’t exactly what many were expecting before the season kicked off, but the event is still expected to start at the same time every year. The NFL has made 6:30 p.m. ET the standard start time for the Super Bowl, and that won’t change in 2022.
The Rams and Bengals kick off at 6:30 p.m. ET in an intriguing game.
Matthew Stafford will be looking to win his first Super Bowl in his first season with the Rams, a team that has gone all-in to add coins and boost a championship run. Von Miller, Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey are the defensive stars of the team while Stafford, Cooper Kupp and Odell Beckham Jr. will test the Bengals defense.
Meanwhile, Cincinnati mounted Joe Burrow’s scorching finish for his first Super Bowl appearance in 33 years. They’ve never won a Super Bowl and are hoping Burrow, Ja’Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd can find a way to move the ball around and keep pace with the Rams.
You won’t want to miss a minute of the Super Bowl 2022 action, so here’s everything you need to know to watch the game on Sunday, February 13.

The 2022 Super Bowl will air on NBC. The network was actually supposed to host the Super Bowl last year, but they swapped years with CBS to air the Super Bowl at the start of the Winter Olympics. NBC hopes the increase in viewership will serve as a reminder of the Olympics.
This will mark the 20th Super Bowl broadcast for NBC. Only CBS aired the game more times (21).
NBC’s top broadcast team, Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth, will be calling the game from Los Angeles. This may be the last time this duo will call a game together, as Michaels, a 77-year-old free agent, is expected to jump ship and join Amazon’s “Thursday Night Football” package ahead of the 2022 regular season.
Michaels and Collinsworth will be joined by supporting reporters Michele Tafoya and Kathryn Tappen during the show as well as rules analyst Terry McAulay. Mike Tirico, Maria Taylor, Jac Collinsworth, Tony Dungy, Drew Brees, Rodney Harrison and Chris Simms will also be part of the network’s pre-game and post-game coverage.
