And away we go. Super Bowl week is finally here, with the countdown to Super Bowl LVIII is now less than a week. The longest season in NFL history will commence Sunday, Feb. 11 in Las Vegas, when the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs face off in Super Bowl LVIII -- the second time these teams have faced off in the big game in four years.

Heading into Sunday there are several juicy storylines, including the Chiefs' quest to become the first team in 19 years to win back-to-back Super Bowls. Speaking of headlines, expect more than a few to come out of Super Bowl opening night, which will take place Monday.
