The Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos are gearing up to play in Super Bowl XLVIII on Feb. 2 at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium if mother nature doesn’t postpone the game.
As all you football fans get ready for the big day, here are a few trivia facts to entertain your guests:

 • Of the top 10 most watched American television programs of all time, nine of them are Super Bowls
