Following are highlights from tonight’s Super Bowl LVI coverage and primetime coverage of the Winter Olympics on the platforms of NBCUniversal:


Al Michaels on the Rams winning Super Bowl LVI: “The Rams were built to win the Super Bowl and they have sealed the deal…In the end, all the stars came out.”

Cris Collinsworth on the Rams’ game-winning touchdown drive: “In a pressure situation, I don’t know if I’ve ever seen anybody be better than Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp. They had no choice. That was the entirety of their passing game, and they got it done for the go-ahead touchdown…That drive by Matthew Stafford and by Cooper Kupp, to just do it themselves, will go down in my mind as one of the great drives ever in Super Bowl history.”

Collinsworth: “When everything was on the line for the Rams — everything — yes, we know it was Aaron Donald, but we also know it was Cooper Kupp. So, the two superstars on both sides of the ball for the Rams, when everything’s on the line, they are the guys.”

Drew Brees: “When I think about this Rams offense, I think perseverance. They were without Tyler Higbee, they lost Odell Beckham, Jr. early, they couldn’t run the football. They struggled for a while, but they persevered, and that last drive was vintage. Their playmakers came through in the end.”

Michaels on Rams WR Odell Beckham Jr.: “It’s a long way from Cleveland to the Lombardi Trophy.”

Rams QB Matthew Stafford to Kathryn Tappen on WR Cooper Kupp and the final drive: “That’s hard work. That’s hours together. I just thank coach for putting it, ‘Hey, Matthew, you and Cooper are going to get this thing done.’ He kept calling plays for him, kept finding ways to get him the ball. He made unbelievable plays. That’s what he does. I’m just so proud of this team. It’s such a team victory…Such a great game.”



Leigh Diffey on Team USA winning gold and silver in monobob’s Olympic debut: “You’re looking at a gold and silver performance from Team USA in the first-ever monobob Olympic competition…The two who have been rivals for so long are now teammates and Olympic medalists in a brand new category…and it’s only just the beginning.”

Diffey on Team USA’s Kaillie Humphries’ gold medal: “In her first Olympics for Team USA, it’s a golden moment!”

Bree Schaaf on Humphries: “Kaillie is not only the best driver in the world, but she is one of the strongest. She’s not as fast as Elana, but her ability to manipulate that sled with as little steering as possible in the exact right spot, that’s what makes her unstoppable.”

Schaaf on Team USA’s Elana Meyers Taylor’s winning silver: “This is the most incredible female athlete I have ever met and had the pleasure of training with in my life.”

Diffey: “Team USA powers in the house of speed…Everything that was against Elana Meyers Taylor, and she has prevailed!”

Meyers Taylor to Lewis Johnson: “It’s really about Team USA and it took every single one of them to get me here. I think this is the first medal for the isolation hotel, so there you go!”

Schaaf on monobob: “This sport is a transition sport, and we recruit athletes from all areas, but we’re looking for explosive speed. These are the running backs of women’s sports – you have to be strong, but you also have to be fast.”

Schaaf on the Yanqing National Sliding Center: “Coming out of corner 13, that section of the track goes up, goes down, it bends away – it’s like a Mario Kart Rainbow Road.”



Tanith White on Madison Hubbell and Zach Donohue’s bronze-medal winning free skate performance, the final performance of their career: “The point of a dance is not to get to the end of it. Madison and Zach, they’re not even skating to get to the end of their careers. They’re skating in the moment, for the moment, for each other…And most importantly, it’s how they skated this today…Power and precision in perfect combination.”

Johnny Weir on Hubbell and Donohue: “They were exquisite. Both of them.”

White on Madison Chock and Evan Bates: “Madison Chock, in my opinion, is the best performer in the world of ice dance today…I just want to put a split screen of this moment back to 2018. It was tears then after their free dance at the last Olympic Games where they had both fallen…now, it’s a triumph.”

Weir on Chock and Bates: “They have been so stone faced this entire Olympics, and to finally see them put it down, put the stress of the performances down and to have done it so brilliantly is what this is all about. It’s so stressful to compete at the Olympics, but then once it’s over you have the elation of your dreams coming true.”



Bill Spaulding on Team USA’s Erin Jackson’s historic 500m gold medal: “Erin Jackson’s meteoric rise to the top is complete with Olympic gold.”

Joey Cheek on Jackson’s gold: “Erin Jackson needed the race of a lifetime, and it looked like that might just be what she did. Brilliant opener, incredibly fast, exactly where she needed to be.”
