Brady vs. Mahomes in match up of the century



The stage is set for what could be one of the most exciting Super Bowls in years. Both Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes seek to make history this Sunday, as defending champion Kansas City Chiefs take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV.

Mahomes looks to lead the Chiefs to be the first team to win back to back Super Bowls since the Patriots in 2004. Brady will compete for his seventh ring as well as breaking his own record as oldest quarterback to start a Super Bowl. 

After a dominating 14-2 season, the Kansas City Chiefs earned themselves top seed, giving them a first round bye. In the divisional round, the Chiefs narrowly defeated Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns 22-17, a game where Mahomes was sent into concussion protocol. In the AFC Championship game, the Chiefs went on to beat the red hot Buffalo Bills 38-24, advancing them to their second consecutive Super Bowl in what was a full display of the Chiefs offensive juggernaut. 

On the NFC side, Tom Brady and the Buccaneers finished 11-5, winning four of the last five games and finishing second in the NFC South, earning them fifth seed in the NFC playoff picture. In the Wild Card round, the Buccaneers faced the Washington Football Team in their first playoff game since 2007, winning by a score of 31-23. In the next week, the Bucs faced the New Orleans Saints, whose legendary quarterback Drew Brees likely played his final game. The Buccaneers won 30-20. In the NFC Championship game, the Buccaneers went to Lambeau Field and faced Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers, one of the most highly anticipated games this season, the Bucs went on to win 31-26, advancing them to the Super Bowl.

Although the Chiefs are favored to win, Tom Brady has been nothing but dominant on the world stage. Don’t count out the Buccaneers. 

Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Florida will host 25,000 fans, 7,500 of them being vaccinated healthcare workers. Pre-COVID, the stadium would hold roughly 66,000 fans.

Besides football, many watch the Super Bowl for the Halftime Show and the commercials. In years past, many music icons performed on arguably the world’s biggest stage. This year, nine time Grammy winner The Weekend will be performing in front of millions, a must watch. 

If you watch the Super Bowl for the commercials, you’re in luck. Super Bowl LV will feature ads from companies ranging from Bud Light to WeatherTech, so if you don’t like football, the ads never fail to amuse. 

When the two teams take the field Sunday, expect an action packed Super Bowl that could go down in the record books
