Super Bowl XLIX weekend is here. The biggest sporting event in the entire world is upon us. The New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks will face off in the battle between the No. 1 seed from the AFC and NFC, respectively. One of the best quarterbacks in NFL history, Tom Brady, will go up against the formidable Seattle defense. This truly has the makings of a good one, and it will be interesting to see if the game lives up to the hype.

The hope is that Super Bowl 49 will be a much more competitive game than last year's contest between the Seahawks and the Denver Broncos. Seattle took control early last year and never looked back. The game was as far apart as the 43-8 final score indicated.

Seattle will be looking to be the first NFL team to repeat as Super Bowl champions for the first time since the early 2000s. Coincidentally, the last team to win back-to-back titles is the team that the Seahawks will be facing: the Patriots. New England hasn't won a title since they defeated the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl XXXIX.

This is it, folks. The final game of the season. After this one, all 32 teams will be 0-0 again and there won't be meaningful football until early September. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Here is all the information you need to know for Sunday's Super Bowl.

Who Will Win The Big Game?

The odds-makers favor the New England Patriots to win the big game. Bovada lists the Patriots as two point favorites. Tom Brady is the favorite to win the Super Bowl MVP Award at 9/5 odds. Poll results suggest that the game will be close as well. The Seahawks are very slight favorites in this one:

Who Are Eagles Fans Rooting For?

The Philadelphia faithful are clearly leaning one way more than the other. It's no surprise to see Eagles fans interested in rooting against the Patriots. Some fans still aren't over the Eagles loss in Super Bowl XXXIX ten years ago and some will never be. Plus there's the whole cheating thing and the fact they allowed the New York Giants to win two titles. The Seahawks might not be the cleanest team either (see: PEDS) but they don't really give the Eagles incentive to root against them.
