Chiefs win AFC title game, set up ultimate showdown with Tom Brady, Bucs in Super Bowl LV
The Kansas City Chiefs have just booked their place in Super Bowl LV after a momentous 38-24 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday night’s AFC Championship Game. With Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers advancing to the title game following their 31-26 win against the Green Bay Packers earlier in the evening, an epic Super Bowl matchup has now been set for the Chiefs and the Bucs.
Among all the narratives surrounding the highly-anticipated Super Bowl matchup, there’s no denying that the biggest storyline will be the individual battle between two all-time great quarterbacks in Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady.
Mahomes, who was a doubt to even suit up for Sunday’s contest against the Bills due to a head injury and a toe problem, managed to will his side to victory with another tremendous showing. The reigning Super Bowl MVP logged 29-of-38 completed passes for 325 yards to go along with three touchdowns and zero interceptions.
For his part, Brady had another memorable showing for the Bucs, as he led Tampa Bay to a huge win over MVP frontrunner Aaron Rodgers and his Packers. Brady finished with 20-of-36 passes completed for 280 yards and three TDs. The 43-year-old, however, conceded three interceptions in a surprisingly poor showing in the second half — something that he likely won’t get away with against the mighty Chiefs.
Super Bowl LV is scheduled for Sunday, February 7 at 6:30 p.m. ET. The matchup will take place in the Raymond James Stadium, as the Bucs host Mahomes and the Chiefs.
