The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have made it to the franchise’s second Super Bowl thanks to a rising defense and Tom Brady. The Kansas City Chiefs are back to defend their title and look just as good as ever after putting a beatdown on the Buffalo Bills two weeks ago.
Both teams matchup so well with each other and both teams have their advantages. There are so many storylines to add on top of the game, which creates the perfect storm for (hopefully) one of the best Super Bowls we’ve ever witnessed.
Starting quarterbacks with Super Bowl MVP honors on their resumes have faced off in the big game just once, with Tom Brady going up against Eli Manning in Super Bowl XLVI. The winning signal-callers from the previous two Super Bowls never have done battle in the NFL’s marquee event. That will change on Sunday, when Patrick Mahomes and the reigning champion Kansas City Chiefs face Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2021 Super Bowl. Kickoff from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla. is set for 6:30 p.m. ET.
Kansas City (16-2) ended a 50-year drought last year by defeating San Francisco for the title. Brady, who captured the Lombardi Trophy with New England the previous season, is making his 10th career Super Bowl appearance and first in his initial season with Tampa Bay (14-5). Kansas City is a three-point favorite in the latest Chiefs vs. Buccaneers odds from William Hill Sportsbook, while the over-under has dipped to 56.
