If you're unable to glue yourself to a giant screen this year for the big game due to prior engagements, it doesn't mean that you'll be stuck watching live stats without seeing the big hits or catching them later on post-game replays.
For the first time, the NFL's Super Bowl broadcast on NBC will be available for streaming through the Internet and on iOS and Android devices, according to SlashGear:
NBC already provides Sunday Night Football access both on the web (which the author has watched quite a few times during this season), as well as on NFL Mobile, but until now, it and previous broadcasters couldn’t show the most important games, outside of being televised or turning to a bootleg stream as a last resort. Kudos to NBC, the NFL, and Verizon for making this happen.
In addition to Super Bowl XLVI, SlashGear reports that the NFL and NBC are working to broadcast other popular games, including wild card Saturday, through NFL and NBC's website, as well as on Verizon's NFL mobile app.
The 46th Super Bowl will be held in Indianapolis on February 5, 2012.
