Super Bowl blackout as NBC broadcast briefly goes dark

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Derek Barnett and cornerback Patrick Robinson celebrate after his recovered fumble during the fourth quarter in Super Bowl LII at U.S. Bank Stadium

NBC has released the overnight television ratings for the contest.

House Divided had some original creations themed around the Super Bowl, with a clam roll ($18) in honor of the Patriots and a cheese steak devoted to the Eagles.

The Super Bowl was humming along like a well-oiled machine as anticipated movie trailers dropped (like the Han Solo teaser and the latest Cloverfield reveal) but then there was a complete blackout, which immediately set off conspiracy theories. That was down 3 percent from comparable numbers for the 2017 game.

A Patriots fan shows off his lucky beads at Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis. "It's hard to measure the economic impact of something like the Super Bowl, when you don't know all of the factors that are going into the calculations".

As Super Bowl fever grips the United States, activists are taking the opportunity to highlight their own agenda.

The indoor arena is not even a year old, but it has already housed several games such as the 2017's Southeastern Conference (SEC) Championship Game and the College Football Playoff National Championship Game. It's a cultural institution.

A Super Bowl blackout of almost 30 seconds confused fans on Sunday night and left many speculating whether NBC had lost millions in commercial revenue because of the lapse.

It was the ninth highest rated Super Bowl ever, with most of the games above it on that list coming in recent years. The halftime performance beating the game is not unusual. We actually still have a little jar full of Shea Stadium turf from their winning game that my husband-then-boyfriend Jeff brought home with him on the subway. There were almost 10,000 volunteers for the game in Minneapolis. Paul (54.9) and Pittsburgh (54.9).

Quarterback Nick Foles' lead the Eagles to a Super Bowl title.

This year's Super Bowl ads tended to err on the side of caution and avoided politics. Members of the Atlanta host committee were in Minneapolis taking notes during this year's Super Bowl to get a better grasp on how to prepare.

BetDSI Sportsbook also posted its odds for Super Bowl LIV in 2020, with the front-runners listed as the Eagles (5-1), the Rams (7-1), the Patriots (8-1), the Packers (9-1) and the Houston Texans (10-1). "But they got us".
