Fans watch the New England Patriots play on television in the 2015 Super Bowl. This year, the Patriots face the Atlanta Falcons.

Over 100 million people are expected to watch the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots go head to head in the Super Bowl. We’ll take a closer look at the economics behind the ads, the politics of the teams (President Trump is close to the team’s owner, coach, and quarterback, though the team’s home state is solidly blue) and, of course, we’ll talk about the game itself.

Guests

  • Charlotte Wilder Staff writer, SB Nation.
  • Rhiannon Walker Associate editor, The Undefeated.
  • Nat Ives Executive editor, AdAge.
