The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are set to play the Kansas City Chiefs for the Lombardi Trophy in Super Bowl LV. Both teams are coming into this matchup with an impressive postseason thus far.

The Chiefs will look to continue an impressive offensive and defensive performance from two weeks ago against the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Championship game as the Bucs look to do the same after and NFC Championship game that saw the Green Bay Packers mount a comeback before Tampa Bay’s stellar defense held on for the victory.

Enjoy the game, and each other’s company in the comments below!

Some Game Notes

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.
