The New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles will battle it out on Sunday in Super Bowl LII on News10NBC.

With all the controversy surrounding the National Anthem protests during the NFL season, social media posts claim that the league decided not to televise Pink singing the Star-Spangled Banner.

The posts ask people to boycott Super Bowl LII.

According to a press release from the NFL, the viral posts are not true.

"The performance will be televised live on NBC prior to kickoff," the press release reads.

In addition, NBC Sports executive producer Fred Gaudelli was quoted as saying, "If there are players who choose to kneel, they will be shown live."

These viral posts are no news, and all noise.
