Sky Sports experts' top tips to watch the Super Bowl as a new fan
Sky Sports NFL presenter Neil Reynolds
Generally, they're trying to move the ball down the field in in 10-yard chunks, you get four goes to move down the field, and you should follow the quarterback. That quarterback is either going to: A) hand it to somebody who tries to run downfield B) he's going to run it himself or C) he's going to throw the football. We'll be talking about the quarterbacks a lot on Sky Sports, it's a huge part of the NFL, so that's who you have got to focus on.
Sky Sports expert analyst Phoebe Schecter
Find one person on offense to watch, don't try and follow the ball wherever it goes because it almost becomes chaos. I would recommend you just pick one person, whether that's the running back or receiver and watch what they do. You can build the picture up that way. You could also watch the offensive line as a group. If they're standing up and going backwards, the quarterback's going to pass, if they're running forwards, it's a run play, for the most part. Try to narrow your vision on what you're seeing.
