The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs are making final preparations as they head into the weekend before facing off in Super Bowl LV from Raymond James Stadium on Sunday. Despite their meeting during Week 12 of the regular season, both teams are undoubtedly not expecting a repeat from their earlier meeting. And this time around, there are some historical milestones each side can reach.
With a Kansas City win, the franchise would record their third Super Bowl Championship and become the first team to earn consecutive Super Bowl titles since the 2003-04 New England Patriots (Super Bowls XXXVIII and XXXIX). Kansas City previously won Super Bowls IV and LIV. If Tampa Bay wins, the Buccaneers would lock up their second Super Bowl (XXXVII) and become the seventh club to win the Super Bowl as a Wild Card team.
Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes would become the youngest starting quarterback to win multiple Super Bowl titles and would join Buccaneers Tom Brady as the only starting quarterbacks to win the Super Bowl in two of their first four career seasons. On the flip side, Brady would win his seventh Super Bowl, extending the mark for the most by any player ever, and would join Peyton Manning as the only starting quarterbacks to win Super Bowls with multiple franchises.
