Super Bowl 50 By The Numbers

This year the National Football League celebrates the golden anniversary of its biggest game – the big game – in our nation’s Golden City. And as an estimated on millions fans that descend upon the San Francisco Bay Area for Super Bowl 50, giving new meaning to the term “gold rush,” the game’s past and present prepare to collide. Not only is Super Bowl 50 a salute to West Coast football, underscoring the recent announcement that two franchises will be moving to the Los Angeles area with the first West Coast Super Bowl since 2002, but it also has the potential to mark a clear transfer of power from elder statesmen such as Broncos Quarterback Peyton Manning to the likes of his young and charismatic Panthers counterpart Cam Newton. In short, has “Omaha” fully given way to “dabbing”?

Only time will tell which team winds up going to Disneyland, as they say, but you can certainly be prepared for the action in the meantime. Below you’ll find some screenshots from a great infographic from the folks at WalletHub. You can see more here.
