The Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are going to war on Sunday to determine who will be holding up that Super Bowl 55 trophy. The 2 greatest quarterbacks we’ve ever seen throw the football are meeting in the biggest game of the year.
So who will win Super Bowl LV?
According to the latest NFL lines for the Super Bowl game, Kansas City are considered as 3.5-point favorites but keep in mind that there is still time to see that spread move.
It makes sense that the Chiefs would be the favorite considering they are the defending champions who just made the Buffalo Bills look like they’ve never been on a football field before. Josh Allen was an MVP candidate and Kansas City turned him into a civilian.
Patrick Mahomes completed 76% of his passes for 325 yards, 3 touchdowns and a 127.6 quarterback rating. He is entering the Super Bowl will all the momentum in the world after suffering a concussion a week earlier against the Browns.
The problem is, he is going up against the greatest to ever do it.
Enter Tom Brady, a man who won his first Super Bowl when Mahomes was in kindergarten. Tom Brady has played in 18% of all Super Bowls that have ever occurred. He has more Super Bowl appearances than Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers combined.
But the sneaky big advantage Tampa Bay has is their star-studded defense that recorded 5 sacks on Aaron Rodgers last week. Rodgers was sacked on 20 times in the regular season. The Bucs got to him 5 times in one game.
Jason Pierre-Paul, Shaq Barrett and Ndamukong Suh are going to TORTURE Mahomes all night. Chiefs fans should be extra nervous after finding out that their starting left tackle, Eric Fisher, tore his Achilles last week which means a backup is responsible for protecting Mahomes’s blindside against this bloodthirsty defense.
Patrick Mahomes will get to plenty more Super Bowls in his career but do not be shocked to see Tom Brady once again lift that Lombardi trophy over his head after another victory in the biggest game in sports.
