Usually, the pregame is a hodgepodge of interviews, videos and general predictions for the event ahead. At 11 a.m., you can catch the documentary Road to the Super Bowl, which is traditional and will be complete with slow motion action shots and replays of the most intense moments of the two team's previous seasons. Live coverage from the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas will begin around 2 p.m.
