Super Bowl 55 will be played at Tampa Bay, Florida at Raymond James Stadium. The game will be played on February 7th, 2021. The two teams that will be playing are the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The chiefs will represent the AFC and the Buccaneers will represent the NFC. This will be the first time ever that the home team will play at their home stadium in the Super Bowl. But there will be limited capacity for fans this year. This year there will be 22,000 fans and 7,500 health care workers that have been vaccinated. The Weeknd will also be performing at the halftime show.
The Kansas City Chiefs will try to make a history to go back to back with a win. Last year they beat the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 with a late comeback win. This won’t be the first time a team has gone back to back if they win. The buccaneers quarterback, Tom Brady, went back to back in 2003 and 2004. This will also be his 10th super bowl appearance. It is very clear that he has a ton of experience in the big game. He’s won 6 Super Bowls all with the New England Patriots and he’s chasing for his 7th. But this isn’t the first time he’s facing the young gunslinger Patrick Mahomes.
Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes have faced each other four times. The first 2 games Tom Brady came out with the win. In the 2nd game it was in 2019 and it was the AFC championship in, the game to get into the super bowl. It was a nail biter ending in overtime with the patriots coming on top 37-31. After that game, Tom Brady went to the Chiefs locker room to congratulate Patrick on his MVP season. The next 2 games belonged to Patrick Mahomes. The last time these two played was in the 2020 regular season, with the chiefs winning 27-24. This is another rematch between the two. The buccaneers open up as underdogs, this is a highly anticipated game between two of the top offenses in the league and two great quarterbacks. Many predictions have already been set but we will find out who’s right on February 7th when Tom Brady faces his young talented friend again Patrick Mahomes.
