Super Bowl 2018,It has been a long time since the Eagles and Patriots last faced each other in the Super Bowl: 13 years, to be exact. But if you’ve been waiting patiently all that time for a rematch, you’re finally in luck. The teams, who last met at the conclusion of the 2004 season, will battle again on Sunday in Super Bowl LII.
The Patriots, of course, won the earlier meeting, Super Bowl XXXIX, 20-17. But the game wasn’t really that close. On Sunday, with the Lombardi Trophy again on the line, they’ll face off beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET.

Some heavy action on the Eagles shifted the line to 4.5 by late last week, and by Monday, some Vegas sportsbooks started offering Patriots -4. But that’s where it has stayed ever since.
Here’s everything you need to know for the 2018 Super Bowl, including who will be performing at halftime and who will be singing the national anthem as well as how to watch the big game.
