This year's Super Bowl is just over one week away, and unfortunately, it looks like there could be a great deal of controversy heading into it. It doesn't even have to do with the football that will be played on the field.

Super Bowl LIII is taking place in Atlanta, home to the busiest airport in the world - Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. It's estimated that over 100,000 people will be coming through Atlanta for the big game.

Right now, with the government still shut down, TSA workers and air traffic controllers are working without pay. Obviously, they're essential to the equation for Super Bowl weekend.

But what if they decide to strike that weekend in an effort to get President Trump to end the shutdown? Many have suggested it's a possibility.

A strike, if executed right before the game, would throw a wrench into the NFL's big weekend. If nobody could get to and from the game, what would they do?

Some have even suggested it's the fastest way to get a deal done in Washington.

At the moment, there don't appear to be any plans for a strike. But as frustrations grow, anything is possible.

This year's game will take place on February 3 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
