The game, which takes places the first Sunday of February, pits the two best NFL teams from the AFC and NFC for the right to take home the Vince Lombardi trophy. Another interesting facet of the game is who will win the Super Bowl MVP. Only one time in the game's history has a member of the losing team been named Super Bowl MVP.
