Last year's Super Bowl was disappointing on every level and simply could not live up to the hype. 2015 could not have provided a more opposite result. This was the year of the emotional rollercoaster. NBC is known for their heartfelt sports coverage and has mastered the art of storytelling, all on full display for Sunday's game. The network leveraged all their best tactics with outstanding results. The game was high drama at its best and kept the audience engaged to the very end.

In this analysis we will examine how brands used social media to continue the conversation, leverage assets and advocates, and even create intentional mistakes to earn attention.
