The wait is finally over! Super Bowl 57 is less than a fortnight away, and fans across the country are getting pumped for what promises to be an epic showdown. As always, there are a ton of storylines to follow heading into the big game.

    But one thing everyone will be watching out for is which NFL stars step up and have a breakthrough performance on the biggest stage. So, who are the players to watch out for? Here’s a look at some of the top contenders.

    Tom Brady – the veteran quarterback who always seems to come through in the clutch

    As the NFL’s greatest dynasty of all time, the New England Patriots have been defined by their veteran quarterback Tom Brady. Time and again, Brady has risen to the occasion in moments when his team seemed caught in a moment of limbo. His uncanny ability to deliver in pressure-packed moments has earned him praise from nearly everywhere – even from those rooting against him.

    The same determination will be on full display as he takes to the field for Super Bowl LVII, where we at home can only assume how explosive his performance will be. Having led his team to nine Super Bowl appearances and six championship wins, it’s safe to say that this experience alone will add fire to Tom Brady’s already heavily stacked arsenal of skills and abilities – something that thrill-seekers everywhere should certainly not miss!

    Aaron Rodgers – the Packers’ quarterback who is a master of improvisation

    Aaron Rodgers has long been a master of improvisation. The highly skilled and experienced quarterback is one of the best players in the NFL and is sure to bring the heat when it comes to Super Bowl LVII. Just last year, he was voted the 2020 NFL MVP for his impressive efforts, so everyone will be keeping an eye on him when he takes the field.

    With his expert play-making and precise passes, Rodgers looks ready to make this Super Bowl memorable for viewers everywhere. Looking forward to seeing what he brings!

    Julio Jones – the Falcons’ receiver who is a threat to score every time he touches the ball

    Julio Jones is one of the biggest stars in the NFL and will undoubtedly draw plenty of attention during Super Bowl LVII. The Atlanta Falcons receiver is a threat to score every time he touches the ball, with speed and agility that have made him one of the top players in his position.

    His statistics speak for themselves: since entering the league in 2011, Jones has recorded six 1000-plus-yard seasons, made seven Pro Bowls, four All-Pros, and ranks within the top ten among all-time best NFL wide receivers. His run of the great play shows no sign of slowing down, making him an essential player to watch during this season’s matchup between Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs.

    DeAndre Hopkins – the Texans’ receiver who is one of the most physically-imposing players in the league

    DeAndre Hopkins is an absolute force to be reckoned with on the football field. He lines up as a wide receiver for the Houston Texans. With six feet of height and a weight of over 215 pounds, he’s by far one of the most significant members of both his team and the league.

    Seven-time Pro Bowler DeAndre Hopkins is expected to make some serious plays during Super Bowl LVII. He had 112 receptions for 1,444 yards with seven touchdowns in 2019, so it’s no wonder he’s viewed by many as a kryptonite-level player for opposite teams. Look out for him during this big showdown between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs; he sure won’t disappoint!

    Khalil Mack – the Bears’ linebacker who is a sack machine and can take over a game defensively

    One of the biggest stars in this year’s Super Bowl 57 (LVII) is the Bears’ linebacker, Khalil Mack. An absolute sack machine, and force to be reckoned with on the defensive side of the ball, Khalil can take over a game all by himself. He leads an elite core of defenders, including Akiem Hicks and Roquan Smith, who look to make life miserable for the opposing quarterback.

    In 2019, he posted 11.5 sacks and five forced fumbles, which were enough to make him a third-team All-Pro. This Super Bowl LVII is the perfect stage for Mack to show why he is one of the best linebackers in the NFL and why he should be feared when entering the fray.

    So, who is your favorite to win the Super Bowl 57 (LVII)? Whether you’re a fan of the Patriots, Packers, Falcons, Texans, or Bears, there’s no doubt that these five players will be the ones to watch on Sunday. They’ve all had great seasons and have proven time and again that they have what it takes to win big games. So sit back, relax, and enjoy watching some of the best players in the league battle it out on the biggest stage of them all.
