Some NFL fans hate the reality that many people only care about the halftime show. Cara Delevinge appears to fall into this category because she supported Rihanna. The model wore a Fenty t-shirt with a polarizing logo. It read: “Rihanna concert interrupted by a football game, but whatever.”
This rubbed some football fans up the wrong way. But there’s nothing wrong with Delevinge showing support for her friend. Indeed, many people don’t care about the result. They enjoy the spectacle of the performances and wacky commercials. There was something for everyone at Super Bowl LVII (via People).
The Kelce brothers received a lot of attention throughout the game. Some fans missed this hilarious moment after Travis scored a touchdown. Jason was sitting on the Philly bench when he decided to munch on a snack. It appears to be an energy bar but many viewers related to the moment. The shot became an instant meme because of his expression and the timing.
It proves that there’s never a bad time to eat, even during the biggest game of an athlete’s life. In the end, Jason wound up on the losing side but he still played well. Perhaps he should have had more snacks because they may have helped him reach another level. Casual fans instantly loved the brilliant center (via USA Today).
Black quarterbacks are finally overcoming the prejudice that they faced for decades. It’s phenomenal to see more diversity in this position over the past few years. Super Bowl LVII witness another milestone that many fans missed. This wasn’t the first time that two black quarterbacks faced each other on opposite teams.
Patrick Mahomes led the way for the Chiefs and proved that he’s the greatest active NFL player. Meanwhile, Jalen Hurts had the game of his life as he proved that he is the franchise quarterback the Eagles dreamed of. It’s a great story but let’s hope that the likes of Lamar Jackson and Justin Fields follow in their footsteps (via BBC).
Terry Bradshaw was a brilliant player and remains a Pittsburgh legend. But it’s also true that his traditional values and lack of etiquette don’t belong on TV in 2023. Many fans missed the moment he appeared to fat-shame Andy Reid after his second Super Bowl win. Reid is one of the greatest NFL coaches in history and was enjoying a legacy-defining moment.
“Come on, waddle over here,” Bradshaw told Reid after the game before an interview. In the end, he said: “have a cheeseburger on us.” Reid laughed off these awkward comments because that’s the type of man he is. But it was tasteless and he didn’t deserve this type of humiliation in front of millions (via New York Post).
Everybody knows that Mahomes had a great game but many fans missed his staggering records. Yes, he won a second ring and another Super Bowl MVP award. But these weren’t the most impressive parts of his season. The Chiefs quarterback became the first player to win the regular season MVP, the Super Bowl, and to lead the league in passing yards and touchdowns in the same season.
Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, and Kurt Warner are the only other players to achieve these accolades in their careers. But they accumulated them across multiple years instead of doing it all at once like Mahomes. The Kansas City icon is already one of the best players in history. His Hall of Fame credentials are better than many players in Canton now (via AP News). Also, as mentioned before, he gutted out an extremely painful high ankle sprain throughout the playoffs, an injury he aggravated in the second quarter of Super Bowl LVII. Mahomes is a gamer with the stats and the toughness to become the greatest ever and his arrow is only trending up.
