In a world where one team must face off against another not once, but twice, on the world stage tempers will flare, bodies will be pushed to the limit, and reveling fans will discover if the underdog can triumph over tragedy… or if the top dog will rise again. Cliched? Absolutely, but appropriate: just as they did in 2007, the New England Patriots will face off against the New York Giants in this year's Superbowl.

Kristen Meinzer, culture producer for The Takeaway and co-host of the Movie Date podcast, and Ibrahim Abdul-Matin, Takeaway Sports contributor, talk through this sports sequel of epic proportions.
