American football on the BBC

As another NFL year comes to an exciting climax, BBC Sport will bring American football fans more post-season coverage than ever before.

Peyton Manning and Drew Brees
Manning and Brees will compete for Super Bowl glory

Only two teams remain in the race for Super Bowl Glory: the New Orleans Saints and the Indianapolis Colts.

Super Bowl XLIV will be live on BBC One from 2255 GMT and on BBC 5 live sports extra from 2100 GMT, Sunday 7 February.

As well as live audio and video (for UK users only), we'll have live text commentary on the BBC Sport website.

The meeting between the Colts and the Saints will be the first time since 1993 that the two teams with the best regular season records will be competing for Super Bowl glory. With both sides able to score freely with high powered offences, the outcome of the game might well come down to the ability of the defences to put pressure on two of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.

The AFC's Colts will be led by legendary Peyton Manning, who is desperate to add to his sole Super Bowl ring after having won his sole title at the end of the 2006 season.

But New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees and his team will have other ideas as they attempt to win their very first Super Bowl.

With both sides averaging over 25 points per game each, this should be an explosive encounter.
