Sunday night, football fans will get the game they have been waiting for: Super Bowl XLVIII (that’s 48 for the non-Romans in the audience).

The Denver Broncos come in with the best offense, led by future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning, while the Seattle Seahawks counter with the best defense and one of the best young quarterbacks in the NFL, Russell Wilson.

So the stage is set for the game on the field, the half-time show starring Bruno Mars and, of course, the commercials. NPR’s Mike Pesca joins Here & Now’s Robin Young with a preview.
