The final is down to the New England Patriots vs. the Philidelphia Eagles. The Patriots have won the title 5 times, while Philly are chasing their 1st championship ring, and revenge for their loss to the Pats in 2005.

What are the rules?
Each team sends out 11 players to score touchdowns – carrying or catching the ball in the Opponent’s end zone for 6 points. The team with possession gets 4 attempts (called downs) to move the ball 10 yards forward. If they succeed, they get another set of 4 downs, and if they fail, possession passes to the other team. The team with the most points at end of the 60-minute game wins. Got it?
