Whether it’s a regular game or a big game — like the Super Bowl —if you’re hosting a bash at home, you should be equipped and prepared. 

Marc Silverstein of On The Marc Media knows a thing or two about how to — we’re going to pun here — score a touchdown when hosting sports fans. It’s all about synchronizing and scheduling in accordance with the game, apparently. 

Here are Silverstein’s go-to tips for an ideal football extravaganza: 

• Get the grill going early; get the food ready ahead of time and lay out a lot of food. 

• "They’re going to come hungry," Silverstein says, so plan out your menu with the quarters: 

          o "They’ll eat at first and second quarter, and then they’ll break. At halftime, they’ll nosh a little bit more.         At the fourth quarter, they’ll be looking for dessert," he said.

• When guests offer to bring something, say yes! Less pressure! 

• In order to prep early, do small things to set up: cook ribs low and slow on the grill, set up your platters, and lay out your hors d'oeuvres.
