What time is the Super Bowl : It’s Bengals vs. Rams for the first time — but Michaels and Collinsworth for potentially the last. What time is the Super Bowl
It’s a battle of No. 4 seeds in Super Bowl 56, with the upstart Bengals and the stalwart Rams meeting on Feb. 13 in Los Angeles to determine the best in the world.
For now, the status of one who’s considered to be one of the best in the world is questionable following the Super Bowl: Al Michaels, long-time NBC play-by-play voice, is expected to move on from NBC this offseason, with overtures being made by Amazon for Michaels to become lead play-by-play voice for “Thursday Night Football.
Michaels, 77, has held prestigious jobs on both Monday night and Sunday night, and moving to Thursday may soon be in his future. In his stead, Mike Tirico could take over for Michaels in 2023
What time is the Super Bowl
Aside from intrigue in the broadcast booth, there’s a matchup between two squads with different paths to the big game. The Rams were a popular Super Bowl pick to represent the NFC this year prior to the start of the season, and they’ve made good on the Matthew Stafford trade so far. But, hey, even Jared Goff made it to a Super Bowl with the Rams
On the opposite sideline, Joe Burrow — the other No. 9 — is angling to make some serious history. Should the Bengals pull off the upset, Burrow will become the first quarterback to win the Heisman trophy, a national championship and a Super Bowl in NFL history.
The matchup for Super Bowl 56 isn’t exactly what many expected before the season began, but the event should still start at the same time it does every year. The NFL has made 6:30 p.m. ET the standard starting time for the Super Bowl, and that will not change in 2022.
Matthew Stafford will look to win his first Super Bowl in his first season with the Rams, a team that went all-in to add pieces and spur a championship run. Von Miller, Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey are the team’s defensive stars while Stafford, Cooper Kupp and Odell Beckham Jr. will test the Bengals’ defense
What time does the Super Bowl start 2022?
- Time: 6:30 p.m. ET, 3:30 p.m. PT
- Date: Sunday, Feb. 13
Super Bowl 56 will start at 6:30 p.m. (3:30 p.m. PT) in 2022. The game will be played on Feb. 13, the latest date on which a Super Bowl has occurred. This is because of the NFL’s decision to extend the regular season to 17 games over 18 weeks.
There will be plenty of Super Bowl coverage throughout the day on cable channels, including NBC. NFL Network will also have plenty of coverage leading up to – and after – the event
The 2022 Super Bowl will be broadcast on NBC. The network was actually supposed to host the Super Bowl last year, but they swapped years with CBS to broadcast the Super Bowl at the beginning of the Winter Olympics. NBC is hoping that increased viewership will serve as a reminder of the Olympics Games
NBC’s top broadcast team of Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth will call the game from Los Angeles. This may be the last time this duo calls a game together, as Michaels, a 77-year-old free agent, is widely expected to jump ship and join Amazon’s “Thursday Night Football” package ahead of the 2022 regular season
There are plenty of ways that viewers will be able to stream the Super Bowl. The easiest for those with cable subscriptions will be to use either the NFL app or Yahoo Sports app, as the league will be broadcasting the games free on those platforms if you enter a cable subscription.

What teams are playing in the Super Bowl?
The Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals. Both teams won their respective division championships in thrilling come-from-behind fashion, with the Bengals overcoming a huge deficit to beat the Kansas City Chiefs, 27-24, in the AFC Championship. The Rams mounted a fourth-quarter comeback against the San Francisco 49ers, ultimately beating them 20-17, to take the NFC Championship title.
Super Bowl LVI is being played in Los Angeles at SoFi Stadium, home to the Rams (and the LA Chargers). It’s the second year a Super Bowl team will have home field advantage (the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the Super Bowl at home last year). However, technically for uniform and coin toss purposes, the Bengals will be considered the “home team” and the Rams will be the visitors since the designations alternate between AFC and NFC champions each year. Yes, it’s weird, but we don’t make the rules
