LIVE NFL COMMENTARY
Super Bowl XLVIII on Absolute Radio
Well, what a season! We've covered so many great games across the year and it's not over yet! We are finally at the Super Bowl, where the Seattle Seahawks will take on the Denver Broncos.
It's the Super Bowl game fans had hoped for, with the league's number one defence the Seattle Seahawks facing the Denver Broncos, the number one offence, led by the record-shattering Peyton Manning. The Super Bowl XLVIII will see them fight it out in New York for the chance to be crowned the world champions.
We'll be chatting with the Red Hot Chili Peppers before they get involved in the world-famous half-time entertainment. Also on the show will be Voice of The Simpsons and Spinal Tap member Harry Shearer, plus Britain's biggest NFL nut, Vernon Kay.
Absolute Radio and Absolute Radio 90s will be the only place on the radio where you'll be able to hear it all. Will Gavin will be in London and Darren Fletcher and Super Bowl winner Rocky Boiman will bring you the commentary from the Metlife Stadium.
In Super Bowl XLVII, Jacoby Jones scored a record breaking 109-yard touchdown, helping to seal the deal on the perfect ending to legend Ray Lewis' career, as he led the Ravens to beat the San Francisco 49ers.
Who will win Super Bowl XLVIII? Listen to Absolute Radio and Absolute Radio 90s from 10pm on Sunday, the only place on British radio where you'll be able to find out.
Meet the team
Sports broadcaster Adam Hunt regularly covers football of the round ball variety for Sky Sports, FOX Sports and the Premier League's official news channel.
But, having spent the best part of 5 years living in the US, Adam is also a fan of the American kind of football. He's delighted to be a part of the Absolute team and is looking forward to following the progress if his 'home' franchise, the Jacksonville Jaguars. Let's just hope they can win more than 2 games this season!
One of the BBC's top football commentators, Darren Fletcher can be heard regularly on Radio 5 live and BBC 1's Match of the Day as well as top Football Phone-In show 606 along with his close mate Robbie Savage.
He is one of the fastest growing names in sports broadcasting having recently called his first NFL Super Bowl.
Absolute Radio 90s is the new home for the NFL on UK radio, and if you're new to the sport we thought we'd explain some of the basics.
Players - Each side can only have 11 players on the field during a play, but they have up to 46 eligible players for a game. Each side has 3 sub-teams within it, an Offensive Team (in possession), a Defensive Team (not in possession), and a Special Team (for a play involving kicking).
Scoring - Ultimately teams are trying to score a touchdown (6 points) by either running the ball into, or catching/receiving the ball from a pass, in the end zone. The end zone is located at the opposite end of the field and marked with a white line. After scoring a touchdown the kicker has the chance to earn an extra point by kicking the ball through the posts. Finally, a player can score a field goal (3 points) by kicking the ball through the posts in open play.
Advancing - There are two main ways for the offense to advance the ball: throwing plays, which are high-risk but will usually achieve more yards and progress up the field, and running plays, which are lower risk but normally result in fewer yards gained.
Downs - The attacking team have four chances, or downs, to move the ball at least 10 yards. Achieving this results in a new set of downs. Failing to achieve a 'first down' results in the opposition taking possession of the ball. During a game you will regularly hear this referred to as the attempt number followed by the minimum yards left to gain. For example: 2nd & 8 means it's the offensive team's 2nd attempt to gain at least 8 yards.
Time - The clock is separated into 15 minute quarters. The clock stops when the ball goes out of bounds for incomplete passing plays, or if a penalty is called. Each team has three time-outs they can call in each half; these can be called at any point to stop the clock for at least 40 seconds and allow the team to plan their next play. Failure to have a winner at full time results in sudden death: the first team to score wins.
