As the Super Bowl approaches, the rating predictions are oven fresh. The current forecast speculates that there will be over 100 million viewers in the United States of America for the first time since 2018.

The rationale behind this prediction is that Sunday's game will likely be a free-scoring affair, with neither team being too key on shutdown defense. Furthermore, this game is the first in at least three years when the NFL will allow a full crowd. Crowds have been limited for the past couple of years due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, the pandemic is being slowly but surely curtailed.

Furthermore, the NFL hit a home run with its halftime show performer. As a global superstar, Rihanna will take the stage. Whether the Barbadian singer handles it alone or calls upon some high-profile friends remains to be seen.

Sunday's Super Bowl has all the makings to cross the 100 million threshold for the first time in about half a decade. Fingers crossed, the game ends up as good as advertised.
