Super Bowl 2012 kickoff start time, live stream and details for Patriots vs Giants

Today (Sun., Feb. 5, 2012) is the big day, Maniacs. No, it's not just the day after a major UFC event, though UFC 143 was a big one.

No, today is Super Bowl Sunday.

On top of your usual top flight MMA coverage, we'll be mixing in live updates of the big game today between the New England Patriots and New York Giants. We know some of you folks simply prefer MMA and believe me, there's plenty of that to go around, but we also know there are just as many football fans, including myself. So let's have some fun with this.

After all, it's the last game until next season.

After the jump, get all the information you need to know on today's game from the official kickoff time to a live stream online.

  • Super Bowl XLVI takes place at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana, for the very first time thanks in large part to Peyton Manning and his many successes with the Colts that helped get the stadium built. Ironically enough, he's likely going to be playing for a different team next year.
  • Super Bowl XLVI is scheduled to officially kick off at 6:29 p.m. ET time. The NFL is rather stringent when it comes to kickoff times, so you can bank on that football flying through the air right around 6:29 p.m. ET time (5:29 p.m. local).
  • Super Bowl XLVI will be broadcast live on NBC with Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth doing commentary. Of the many "A-team" broadcasters, they're one of the very best. However, if you can't get to a television and you're only able to get online, there's no need to search for an illegal stream. For the first time ever, will stream the game on its site.
  • The Super Bowl XLVI halftime show will feature Madonna in the NFL's latest bid to find a really old performer who won't embarrass them on live television. If you're looking to place blame for the recent spate of old time musicians rocking at the big game, you can thank Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake for trying to get cute and ruining it for everyone.
  • The Patriots are favored by three points despite the fact that they lost to these same Giants earlier this year by four points at home.

There you have it, folks. Stay tuned later today for live coverage and updates of Super Bowl XLVI.
