In Super Bowl LV, fans will get to witness a Quarterback matchup, in which some are calling the Jordan & Lebron moment in football. Although that match up never happened, Tom Brady and the Bucaneers vs. Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs, is a battle between a champion and his potential successor.
Tom Brady, who has won six super bowl rings, helped lead the Bucaneers to victory, defeating the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship on Sunday, with a final score of 31-26. After entering the finals as a wildcard and advancing to the championship, many are calling the Bucaneers the underdogs, despite Brady’s history. The 43 -year old spent 20 seasons playing with the New England Patriots before signing with the Bucaneers this season. Brady will be making his 10th Super Bowl appearance as he goes for his 7th championship ring.
Patrick Mahomes, today’s fan favorite on DraftKings, according to reports, may be on his way to being a repeat MVP. The quarter back may have some pressure on his back as he attempts to bring home the Lombardi trophy for a second time in a row, earning his second ring, which would make him the youngest player to do so.
The Kansas City Chiefs secured their spot after beating the Buffalo Bills in Sunday’s AFC Championship, 38-24.
In a Nov.29 regular-season game against the Bucaneers, the Chiefs won, with a final score of 27-24. That game Patrick Mahomes threw three passes that resulted in touchdowns, Brady also threw three touchdown passes, but had two interceptions.
The face-off between the “G.O.A.T’s” will take place at 6:30PM EST on Sunday, February 7 at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL , another history making moment! The Bucaneers will become the first team to ever host the Super Bowl on their home field!
