The New England Patriots got off to a slightly rough start on their way to another Super Bowl appearance as their bus driver apparently took them immediately in the wrong direction. "But certainly they (Saints) would've been in a very good position to have won that game".

WGBH News' Esteban Bustillos highlights player stats, team history, and what to watch for in this year's game. This is the third Super Bowl played in the city of Atlanta with the Georgia Dome hosting Super Bowl XXVIII and XXXIV.

The Patriots' Tom Brady, 41, would replace Peyton Manning as the oldest quarterback to win a Super Bowl if he can secure a sixth ring that would also all but put an end to the debate over whether "No. 12" is the greatest player of all-time.

Of the 10 highest-rated television programs in USA history, nine were Super Bowls and one was the finale of "M.A.S.H". If Brady wants that record, he'll have to advance to Super Bowl 54 in Miami next year.

We're hours away from the 2019 Super Bowl's kickoff and if you don't have a television, there are other ways of watching the game online! Super Bowl XXVIII (Dallas Cowboys vs. Buffalo Bills) and Super Bowl XXXIV (St. Louis Rams vs. Tennessee Titans) were both held at the former Georgia Dome, which was demolished in 2017 after Mercedes Benz Stadium opened.

-Giants 21, Patriots 17 in Super Bowl 46; a rematch of New York's win, which spoiled New England's run at an undefeated season, four years earlier.

According to Fox Business, the National Football League covers the cost of about 150 rings for the winning team, and the yearly total of each set of rings is approximately $5 million.

CBS Sports has programming from Atlanta every day starting at 8 a.m. ET leading up to the big game on Sunday.
