Super Bowl Drinking Game - 2016
NOTICE: Please follow this link for the Drinking Game Rules for the 2017-2018 Superbowl.
The New England Patriots will be playing the Atlanta Falcons in Houston this Sunday for the right to hoist the Lombardi Trophy. Will Tom Brady and Bill Belichick secure their unprecedented fifth championship? If so, will a hooded Patriots' equipment manager hit Roger Goodell from behind with a steel chair as he's presenting the Lombardi Trophy? Can Matt Ryan cap off an MVP season by bringing Atlanta it's first NFL Championship? Are we positive Julio Jones isn't a T-1000? Will there be any academy awards hopefuls faking penalties during critical drives?
Of course, many of our friends don't care about these questions or my pick. They're watching on Sunday to socialize and get riggity-riggity-wrecked! We at QQ are here to help, with some big-game adjustments to enhance our Sunday Night Football Drinking Game.
