SUPER BOWL LV is SET!!!
The goal for the Kansas City Chiefs from the onset of the 2020 NFL season was to defend their Super Bowl LIV title. “Run it back,” they said. They’re now one win away from achieving that goal.
After defeating the Buffalo Bills 38-24 in a slugfest of an AFC Championship Game, the Chiefs will compete against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV. It’ll be a chance for the team to earn their second consecutive Super Bowl title. An important subplot in the win, the Lamar Hunt Trophy is staying home in Kansas City where it belongs. It’s only the second time in franchise history that the team has secured the namesake trophy of the Chiefs’ founder.
Representing the NFC will be the Bucs, who finished the regular season 11-5 and are making the Super Bowl as a No. 5 seed. They narrowly defeated the top-seeded Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship, 31-26, and will now look to win the franchise’s second Super Bowl.
For the AFC, it’s the Chiefs for a second-straight year following their 38-24 win over the Buffalo Bills. The defending champs are trying to build a dynasty in the making by becoming to first team to win the Super Bowl in consecutive years since Brady and the New England Patriots did it in 2003 and 2004.
Speaking of dynasties, Tom Brady will look to claim his seventh Lombardi Trophy in his first season with Tampa Bay after winning six in New England. It’s Brady’s 10th appearance in the Super Bowl.
This will be the second time Brady and Mahomes have faced off in the playoffs, the last being in the 2019 AFC Championship that saw Brady and the Patriots come way with a 37-31 win in overtime. That was also the Chiefs’ last postseason defeat.
We’ll be seeing history made when the Buccaneers ‘host’ Super Bowl 55. They have become the first team in NFL history to play a Super Bowl in their home venue, as Raymond James Stadium will host this year’s title game.
WHO YOU GOT!??
