What channel is the Super Bowl on in 2021?

Each year, the NFL rotates which broadcast network airs the Super Bowl. We break down who will get the game in 2021.

Why Mattress Mack’s Big Game wager isn’t all about the money

The Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers face off on Sunday, February 7th in Super Bowl 55. The game takes place in Tampa, Florida at Raymond James Stadium with kickoff set for approximately 6:30 p.m. ET.

This year’s game will air on CBS. The NFL rotates the game between the networks that have major television deals. That means it moves between CBS, NBC, and FOX. While ESPN has Monday Night Football, the NFL would probably only allow ESPN to broadcast the game if they aired it on ABC.

The last time CBS broadcast the game was Super Bowl 53, when the Patriots beat the Rams 13-3 in Atlanta. Prior to that CBS broadcast Super Bowl 50, when the Broncos beat the Panthers 24-10 in Santa Clara, California. Prior to those two clunkers, CBS had a fun one at Super Bowl 47 when the 49ers came back from a 28-6 deficit after a power outage but lost 34-31 to the Ravens. The quality each year can be hit or miss.

The CBS broadcast means we’ll get Jim Nantz and Tony Romo in the booth for the proverbial big game. Tracy Wolfson, Evan Washburn, and Jay Feely will serve as sideline reporters and former NFL referee Gene Steratore will be the rules analyst.
