Super Bowl LV Preview

When these two teams met during the regular season on November 29, Mahomes and the Chiefs handled Brady and the Bucs, winning 27-24. Mahomes and company jumped out to a 17-point lead in the first quarter, but the Tampa Bay came storming back, shutting Kansas City out in the fourth and almost coming back to win it. Mahomes finished that game with 462 yards and three touchdown passes, while Brady had 345 yards, three scores and two costly interceptions.

After throwing three picks in the NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers, Brady will have to watch his accuracy issues against the Chiefs. He got away with throwing multiple costly interceptions against the Packers largely because Green Bay coach Matt LaFleur elected to kick a field goal instead of letting Aaron Rodgers go for it on fourth down late in the game when the odds favored the Packers scoring. Instead of having Rodgers try to get in the end zone, LaFleur close to give the ball back to Brady. Don’t look for Andy Reid to make that same mistake.

In their first meeting, Reid had Mahomes go for it late in the game multiple times to keep the ball out of Brady’s hands. The Chiefs eked out a win as a result. “I learned a long time ago, you don’t give Tom Brady another shot,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “That’s why he’s the G.O.A.T. So, don’t give them the ball back. That was the mindset there.”

For his part, Mahomes is excited to go toe to toe with the best all-time at his position, but he’s not letting the excitement of Super Bowl week dull his sense of humor. “Being able to go up against one of the greatest if not the greatest quarterback of all time in his 150th Super Bowl, it’s going to be a great experience for me,” Mahomes said after winning the AFC Championship, via Bleacher Report. “To go out there and get to have a chance to repeat and get to do it against the best, I mean it’s something special and I’m excited for the opportunity.”

After beating the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV last February, the Chiefs managed to keep the core of their winning unit together for another run this year, and here they are. They’ll face the ultimate test now, with Brady and a Bucs defense that surrendered just over 22 points a game.
