All week, each Bucs Nation staffer brought you their bold predictions one-by-one daily leading up to today. As opposed to the regular season and playoffs where we provided them all in one post the morning of the game, you will find a roundup from this week’s bold predictions right here with links to their respective breakdowns to review and the poll to follow.
David Harrison’s Bold Prediction: My last bold predictions of the year. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin receive fifteen or more targets without a drop between them, and one of them goes for 153-yards or more.
Bailey Adams’ Bold Prediction: Tom Brady will throw for 350-plus yards and three-plus touchdowns without turning the ball over. And if he can do that, the Bucs will be in a great position to win the game.
Jason Curtis’ Bold Prediction: My bold prediction for Super Bowl LV is that we will see huge impacts from the Bucs bench. We’ll see touchdowns, lots of receptions, big yardage, and huge game-changing plays. Arians and Leftwich will keep the Chiefs on their toes guessing the packages they send out by mixing up the personnel.
Evan Winter’s Bold Prediction: Both teams will combine for less than 700 total yards of offense, less than 45 combined points, and four or fewer combined touchdowns. But here’s the icing on the cake: There will be more combined turnovers than there will be combined touchdowns in this game.
James Yarcho’s Bold Prediction: I predict Leonard Fournette will rush for over 100 yards while scoring two rushing touchdowns. To find the last running back to rush for over 100 yards and have two rushing touchdowns in a Super Bowl, you have to rewind the clock to 1998. Yes, Super Bowl XXXII between the Denver Broncos and Green Bay Packers. The Broncos would go on to win that game on the back of Super Bowl MVP and Hall of Famer Terrell Davis who finished with 157 yards and three touchdowns on thirty carries.
Gil Arcia’s Bold Prediction: Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has thrown for less than 250 yards just four times all season. Back in Week 12, Mahomes scorched the Bucs defense for 359 yards passing in the first half alone. For my Super Bowl LV bold prediction, the Buccaneers defense will hold Mahomes to under 250 yards passing and just one touchdown.
