Super Bowl Quick Hits
1. According to this year’s “Madden” simulation, the Eagles will win the Super Bowl, 31 to 17 over the Chiefs. Eagles QB Jalen Hurts will be named MVP, with 282 yards passing, two touchdowns, no interceptions, and 88 yards rushing.
(Here’s a highlight video.)
2. Again, I would have preferred to be surprised by this during the Super Bowl, but Ben Stiller brings back Derek Zoolander for a Pepsi Zero Sugar commercial.
If you’re not turned off by SPOILERS, you can check out a bunch more celebrity Super Bowl ads here and here.
3. The wife of San Francisco 49ers linebacker Fred Warner posted some TikToks giving away NFL “secrets” she learned after meeting her husband. For instance, she can’t even sleep with her husband the night before a game.
What was the best Super Bowl national anthem performance of all time? Of course it was Whitney Houston at Super Bowl 25. Nobody disputes that.

1. Whitney Houston, Super Bowl 25 (1991)
2. Jennifer Hudson, Super Bowl 43 (2009)
3. Beyoncé, Super Bowl 38 (2004)
4. Opera singer Renee Fleming, Super Bowl 48 (2014)
5. Faith Hill, Super Bowl 34 (2000)
