Tonight, Super Bowl week officially begins with the opening night festivities.

There, we’ll get a chance to hear what various Rams and Patriots players have to say about their Super Bowl 53 matchup. It will give Bengals fans a chance to hear what former Bengals Andrew Whitworth and Rex Burkhead have to say, as they were both in Cincinnati just two seasons ago. Now, they’ll face each other with a Lombardi Trophy on the line.

We also may get to hear from Rams quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor, who is set to become the Bengals’ new head coach, which can’t be officially announced until next week.

Tonight’s events can be seen live on the NFL Network. You can stream the event via The Rams’ interview session will begin at 7:00 p.m. ET. The Patriots will follow at 9:00 p.m. ET.

In addition, Super Bowl Live continues today as well. This event is a free-to-the-public “fan village,” which is usually decorated and themes around the host city, celebrating its culture, music and more. If you’re in Atlanta, be sure to check it out.

Super Bowl Live began January 26th and will run through Saturday, the day before Super Bowl 53. Go here for more info on the festivities.
