Patriots vs. Falcons. Brady vs. Ryan. East Coast vs. Lower East Coast.
Should be a good one. Or at least an opportunity to catch some commercials among friends.
But since you’ll be busy tweaking the color settings on your TV and studying prop bets, cooking an elaborate spread is not advised.
Ordering an elaborate spread, however... that is very much advised. We’re talking famous sandwiches, wings, pizzas, cocktail kits and other important items that come to you.

The score, the squares, the halftime show... it’s all just background noise once the deep-dish pizza comes out. $25-$95, Gino’s East
Here you’ve got everything required to construct four Primanti Bros.’ pastrami sandwiches topped with coleslaw, french fries and provolone. Plus a T-shirt. Oh, Pittsburgh. $89, Goldbely
If you want dainty wings, look elsewhere. If you want a spicy two-handed snack that’s both wing and drumstick, look here. Made you look. $89 and up, The Peanut
The over/under of your consumption of corn husks filled with slow-roasted ancho chili pork is set at seven. We’ll take the over. $14/dozen, The Tamale Company

Pretzels are nice. But pretzels coated in beer caramel and topped with candied mustard seeds are better. Hey, we don’t make the rules. We just observe them to the letter. $17.50, Mouth
