It’s Super Bowl weekend! This weekend is one of, if not the biggest, sports weekend of the year. Not because there is a lot going on, it’s just because of all of the pomp and circumstance surrounding the big game.
It will also be a busy weekend in college basketball and the NBA, and we also have the Winter Olympics going on as well. Let’s take a look at the upcoming weekend in sports.
Top Sports Events for This Weekend – February 12 – February 13
NFL Super Bowl
After 18 grueling weeks of the regular season and three playoff games, the Cincinnati Bengals will clash with the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles on Sunday night.
This game will revolve around the quarterbacks, as Matthew Stafford finally gets to play on the big stage, while the young, up-and-coming Joe Burrow will lead the Bengals. Each team has a very good offense that can put up points in bunches, so everyone is hoping for an offensive game.
Ja’Marr Chase is quickly becoming a superstar for the Bengals, while Cooper Kupp may be the best receiver in the game right now. The Rams also have Odell Beckham Jr., who is making a big comeback after a few bad seasons in Cleveland.
We’ll see if Matthew Stafford will shine on the big stage or if Joe Burrow, the quarterback who won a national championship, can now cement his legacy by winning the Super Bowl as well.
Along with the Super Bowl comes a lot of other bits of entertainment. Everyone loves the new commercials that debut during the Super Bowl. We also can’t forget the halftime show.
This year’s show features Hip Hop artists spanning from the early 1990s to the modern-day. We’ll see Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and Mary J. Blige. We also could see some surprise appearances as well.
As always, the Super Bowl will be the most-watched event of the year. Let’s hope that the game is exciting, the commercials are good, and the halftime show is very entertaining!
The game of the week will take place in primetime on Saturday night, as the struggling Los Angeles Lakers will head to San Francisco to take on the Golden State Warriors.
The Warriors are playing like a team that is poised to win a title. Once Draymond Green returns from injury, the Warriors will have their core back and will be even better than they already are.
The Lakers have been struggling, and if they stay on this pace, they may not even make the playoffs. LeBron James is playing well, but Anthony Davis hasn’t been what they thought he would be, and Russell Westbrook has been a huge disappointment.
The Lakers weren’t able to make any moves at the deadline, so they’ll have to try to get into the playoff hunt with the team that they have now.
The way the Lakers are playing, this could be an easy victory for the Warriors. We’ll see if the Lakers come to play, or they’ll let the Warriors have their way.
