Super Bowl LIV was both the best super bowl and the worst super bowl in NFL history. The game was played in Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida, the home of the Miami dolphins. It was the 11th Super Bowl ever to be played in Miami, surpassing the city of New Orleans, Louisiana which has hosted 10. The game was a matchup between the San Francisco 49ers, the number one seed in the National Football Conference, versus the number two seed in the American Football Conference, the Kansas City Chiefs. Jennifer Lopez and Shakira were the halftime performers, along with guest performers Bad Bunny and J Balvin. Keep Reading

In the midst of Philadelphia’s best start to the regular season since 2004, starting quarterback and MVP front-runner Carson Wentz tore his ACL on what was otherwise an innocuous dive into the end zone against the Rams in Week 14. Devastation ensued. Keep Reading
