New York - Promising the boldest and coldest Super Bowl ever, staged for the first time from America's largest media market, Super Bowl XLVIII on FOX is one for the ages.

As a result, in the final hours leading up the broadcast network's live game day coverage, FOX and the NFL showcase some of the sport's best stories -- narratives not only surrounding the men suiting up for Super Bowl XLVIII -- but intimate chronicles by millions of fans, both public and private figures, who cheer them each week in three unique programming specials. Beginning Saturday, Feb. 1 with the 3rd ANNUAL NFL HONORS and continuing Sunday, Feb. 2 with ROAD TO THE SUPER BOWL and FOOTBALL AMERICA: OUR STORIES, FOX shines a light on the accomplishments of NFL's biggest names both present and past, the fans who follow them and the unmatchable passion and pageantry surrounding the game.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS

3rd ANNUAL NFL HONORS

Saturday, Feb. 1 (8:00-10:00 PM ET)

The National Football League recognizes its best players, performances and plays from the 2013 season at a two-hour primetime awards special on the eve before the NFL's two top teams kick off for Super Bowl XLVIII. Award-winning actor and New York native Alec Baldwin hosts the show from the renowned Radio City Music Hall in New York. For the first time ever, the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2014 will be introduced during the show with some members of the newest class appearing on stage. Joined by current and former players, The Associated Press will announce its annual accolades in an awards-show format with winners on hand to accept their awards.

ROAD TO THE SUPER BOWL

Sunday, Feb. 2 (12:00-1:00 PM ET)

Produced by Emmy Award-winning NFL Films, ROAD TO THE SUPER BOWL, narrated by Andre Braugher, features an inside look at the most unforgettable moments, greatest performances and most dominant teams of the 2013 NFL season. Beginning with the opening kickoff in Week 1 and continuing through the AFC and NFC Championship Games, ROAD TO THE SUPER BOWL captures the best of more than 100 players and coaches wired for sound, accented by NFL Films' classic slow-motion footage.

FOOTBALL AMERICA: OUR STORIES

Sunday, Feb. 2 (1:00-2:00 PM ET)

Produced by NFL Films, FOOTBALL AMERICA: OUR STORIES is the culmination of a season long project built around the single question: "Why do we love football?" NFL Films gathered thousands of answers from fans across all walks of life, including familiar faces such as Whoopi Goldberg, Mark Harmon, LL Cool J, Rob Lowe, Joe Montana, Dr. Oz, Condoleezza Rice and Robin Roberts. In addition, more than 100 current and former NFL players, coaches and team executives told their stories, all of which are available on TogetherWeMakeFootball.com. FOOTBALL AMERICA: OUR STORIES, narrated by actor/producer/director Forest Whitaker, explores those answers and celebrates the five winners of a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Super Bowl XLVIII.

Earlier this season, the NFL launched "Together We Make Football - Your Story," an invitation to anyone touched by the game of football -- as a player at any level or as a fan -- to share why they love the game. The NFL narrowed the thousands of submissions to 10 finalists, and NFL Films formed those stories into short features, which again were voted on by fans to determine the five winners. Those five, unveiled on FOX during Divisional Playoff Games and Conference Championship Games, will be honored and celebrated at Super Bowl XLVIII.

The campaign originally kicked off with a nationally televised message premiering on NFL Network's Thursday Night Football featuring Samantha Gordon, the 10-year-old youth football viral video sensation. Last year, Samantha's father posted a highlight video of her starring in her youth football league. The video went viral and was viewed by nearly 5 million people within three days of its posting, beginning a whirlwind journey that led to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell inviting the Gordon family to be his guests in New Orleans for Super Bowl XLVII in 2013. Samantha's experience became both the inspiration and the blueprint for "Together We Make Football - Your Story," and ultimately, for FOOTBALL AMERICA: OUR STORIES.
