The Super Bowl contains multitudes. Were it just a football game, we would be able to squeak by with just 4,897 hours of pregame coverage over the two weeks since the championship games. But with so much else going on, we need the Gladwellian 10,000 hours, making us all experts when it comes to hype before the game kicks off around 6:30 p.m. ET Sunday night on CBS.

We have the nuts and bolts for the game below. It starts at 6:35 p.m. ET and with a long halftime show will probably take close to four hours. Jim Nantz and Phil Simms are the announcers for the big game while you can also stream the game on CBS.
