Simms provides analysis for his seventh Super Bowl, the fifth for CBS Sports. Nantz and Simms are joined on the broadcast by "NFL on CBS" analysts Steve Tasker and Solomon Wilcots serving as sideline reporters.
CBS Sports' seven hours of pre-game coverage of Super Bowl XLVII begins with "Road to the Super Bowl" (11 a.m.), followed by "New Orleans: Let The Good Times Roll" (noon), "Phil Simms All-Iron Team: Super Bowl Edition" (1 p.m.) and "The Super Bowl Today," the network's live pre-game studio show (2-6 p.m.), with James Brown along with Dan Marino, Boomer Esiason, Shannon Sharpe, Bill Cowher, as well as Greg Gumbel, NFL insider Jason La Canfora, and reporters Lesley Visser, Tasker and Wilcots.
In addition, CBS Sports Network, the 24-hour cable home of CBS Sports, debuts its Super Bowl coverage with more than 50 hours of original programming including first-time-ever extended post-game coverage with "Super Bowl Live: Post-Game Show," hosted by Brown, Marino, Esiason, Sharpe and Cowher.
