This most unmatched of NFL seasons pertains to an end on Sunday when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs satisfy in Super Bowl LV at Raymond James Arena in Tampa, Florida.
Making their very first appearance in the Big Video Game in 18 years and only the 2nd in franchise history after beating the Oakland Raiders 48-21 in Super Bowl XXXVII, the Bucs are the first team in NFL history to play the Super Bowl in their house arena.
The Chiefs, meanwhile, return to the Super Bowl 12 months after beating the San Francisco 49 ers 31–20 and might end up being the first team to win back-to-back titles because the New England Patriots in the 2003 and 2004 seasons.
Here’s all you require to understand ahead of Super Bowl LV.
Tyreek Hill finished with profession highs of 13 catches and 269 getting backyards, including a staggering 203 lawns in the very first quarter as Kansas City took a 17 -0 lead versus Tampa Bay in Week 12.
The shellacking the Bucs defense suffered in the regular season is firmly in the rearview mirror for a system that ranks 3rd in Football Outsiders’ DVOA defensive scores and made life extremely uncomfortable for both Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers in the last two championship game.
Preventing Mahomes, who is 44 -9 as a starter in his career, must be much more tough however the reigning Super Bowl MVP will play behind a makeshift offensive line with the Chiefs missing beginning left tackle Eric Fisher and right deal with Mitchell Schwartz.
On the other side of the ball, the Chiefs rank 22 nd in Football Outsiders’ DVOA defensive ratings and face a Bucs offense that arrives in Super Bowl LV on the back of a franchise-record streak of scoring a minimum of 30 points in six consecutive video games.
If Mahomes and Brady have records in their sights, the same uses to the men on the sidelines with Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and his Bucs equivalent Bruce Arians both on the verge of making history.
At 62 years of age, Reid can end up being the earliest head coach to win back-to-back Super Bowls, surpassing the record set by Vince Lombardi, who was 54 when the Green Bay Packers won Super Bowl II.
Reid, incidentally, was on the sidelines when Brady’s Patriots beat his Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl XXXIX to become the seventh group to win consecutive titles.
Arians, on the other hand, would end up being the oldest head coach to win a Super Bowl, going beyond a record held by Bill Belichick, who was 66 when the Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams 2 years back.
