Super Bowl TV Coverage: Everything to know for game day

The big day is here! It’s Super Bowl Sunday.

Super Bowl 2017 tickets: Why fans can’t go to the game

Trying to get your hands on a Super Bowl ticket? Here's why it's so hard.

Posted by Cincy Jungle on Sunday, February 5, 2017

Super Bowl Sunday is bittersweet for NFL fans whose team isn’t in the big game.

While it’s fun to enjoy the festivities of the biggest American sporting event of the year, the NFL season will officially be over after tonight. And... the Bengals won’t be playing. And... we’re left to wait eight months until the start of the 2017 season. The waiting game is already on for the Bengals who didn’t make it to the postseason for the first time in six years. But, after tonight, there will be no live NFL games to watch for far too long.

So, soak it all up, because let’s face it, you’re going to miss football more than you’re likely willing to admit. There’s a ton of ways to enjoy the NFL today.

Here are the details on Super Bowl 51 television coverage from Fox, NFL Network, and ESPN (all times Eastern):
