Brady and Mahomes
This is going to be one of the most exciting Super Bowl matches. The reason is that it will pit two superstars quarterbacks: Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes. So it will be a generational duel between them. Brady will be looking for his seventh ring, and Mahomes will be going for his second in a row.
Tom Brady, in his first season as a Buccaneer, has done a stellar job, guiding the team to the final. He will face the defending champions, with Mahomes leading, the man with the biggest contract in the sport’s history.
For the first time in the NFL’s 100-year history, the last two title winners will meet in a Super Bowl. Mahomes won it in 2020 in Miami. Brady did it in 2019 in Atlanta, at that time defending the New England Patriots.
Super Bowl Titles
Tampa Bay Buccaneers have only played in one Super Bowl in their whole history and won it. It was in 2003 against the Carolina Panthers.
Now with Brady leading, the franchise has a very good chance of winning the title for the second time, after 18 years.
As for the Chiefs have a slightly more successful track record. They have won two Super Bowls, with a 50-year gap between them!
Their first title came in 1970 over the Minnesota Vikings. That was three years after the Chiefs lost in the first-ever Super Bowl against the winners Green Bay Packers.
Chief´s second Super Bowl was last year, in 2020, over the San Francisco 49ers, with Mahomes already defending the franchise.
