The Philadelphia Eagles are the champions following a 41-33 victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 52. And now that means we’re almost ready to find out how Jack Pearson dies on This Is Us. The expected start time for the show is 10:45 p.m. ET.

If you’re interested in taking the next step toward seeing just how and when Jack Pearson dies, you can skip the Eagles-Patriots Super Bowl that precedes it and tune in to NBC at approximately 10 p.m. ET. That allows for about three hours and 30 minutes of broadcast time and will ensure you don’t miss a minute of Emmy nominee Chrissy Metz’s powerful journey. In the last 11 years — but excluding last year’s overtime Super Bowl — the big game has typically ended its broadcast at 10:07 p.m.

Everyone loved this one. That’s why the Eagles won Celebration of the Year for it at Saturday’s NFL Honors awards show.

We thought the Eagles might top all of this in the Super Bowl, but no such luck. But they did get to hoist the Lombardi Trophy for the first time in team history, which probably makes up for it.

Penn State didn’t actually do anything wrong here. But if a question that faces you in life is, Should a little FCS program try to dunk on a historic, national blue-blood on Twitter for claiming one of its players? the answer must always be, Yes.

“He’s an awesome player and somebody who you have to be ready to play,” Long said. “He’s so unique. In my opinion, I’m not an expert historian, but you’d have to really sell me on there being a better tight end that ever played.”

Instead, Brady will have the biggest mismatch-maker in the NFL at his disposal now that Gronkowski has been cleared. He is the Patriots’ leading receiver this season with 69 catches for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns in the regular season.

Josh McDaniels took one last trick from Bill Belichick, and snubbed the Indianapolis Colts after initially accepting their head coaching job. He’s been a great student to Belichick, really.

The Colts now get to frantically search for a new head coach just a couple of weeks before the NFL Combine takes place, and the NFL draft happens in late April. It’s not an ideal situation for them, but apparently Robert Kraft did just enough to keep his offensive coordinator (and stick it to the Colts for Deflategate).
