Kansas City Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes are battling it out with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tom Brady in Super Bowl LV at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. We're all thinking it: This could possibly be the single greatest quarterback matchup in any Super Bowl ever.
Mahomes and the Chiefs are looking to become the first team since Brady's New England Patriots to win consecutive Super Bowls as Mahomes cements himself as the NFL's new star QB and baby GOAT. We know all about Brady's many achievements and accolades -- and we're all well aware what one more Super Bowl ring could mean for the future Hall of Famer's legacy. For Buccaneers fans, it's worth even more than that. A team that hasn't advanced to the Super Bowl since 2003 adds Mr. GOAT himself and boom -- the Bucs are right back in the Super Bowl!
