Brett Favre will stream Super Bowl LIV with Joe Montana and Drew Brees

Brett Favre is among the many entertainers and athletes participating in the Cameo Cares benefit to help those impacted by the coronavirus.

If Green Bay Packers fans aren't overly excited to listen to Joe Buck and Troy Aikman call the Super Bowl on Sunday, perhaps Brett Favre can help fill a niche.

The Packers legend will take part in a special broadcast during the game streaming on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. Favre will commentate on the game alongside fellow quarterbacks Joe Montana and Drew Brees. The "FOX Sports Super Bowl LIV Watch With Party" will be hosted by Joel Klatt.

“We’re gonna analyze the game and talk through it as three QB’s just hanging out on the couch,” Brees said on The Rich Eisen Show.

Fox executive vice president for digital David Katz described the unique approach to the Washington Post’s Ben Strauss: “The whole goal is a second-screen experience. [Viewers] aren’t locked away staring at a television intently. People have their phones next to them, and we believe something like this is a ‘timeline stopper.’”

This stream will not feature game footage, with the idea being that fans can view it on their phones, tablets or other devices while the Super Bowl is played on their televisions.

“The idea here is it’s a hang,” Katz told Strauss. “It’s almost like you’re in the living room with these three legends while they’re having a conversation among themselves.”

The star-studded crew will watch Super Bowl LIV from a suite at Hard Rock Stadium, with various other big-name personalities from around the league visiting in at times to join the conversation.

Fans will be able to submit questions to the crew on Twitter with the hashtag #AskTheLegends.
