Super Bowl LV preview

This year, the intrigue is off the charts with the game’s greatest ever player Tom Brady looking for a record 7th Super Bowl ring with his new team – the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Buccs also have the advantage of playing the game on their home field; Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Florida.

Standing in the GOATs way is the man deemed to be his natural successor, Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes. The dynamic young quarterback is the reigning league MVP and lifted the Chiefs to the Super Bowl title last year.

Brady has never won a Super Bowl outside of the New England Patriots organisation. Doing so against the hot favourite Chiefs would further cement his legacy. A win for Mahomes could see him lay down his own marker in the quest to catch Brady. We can’t wait.
