It is here. Super Bowl LV kicks off later tonight, with the Kansas City Chiefs looking to repeat as champions while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are looking to land quarterback Tom Brady his seventh ring. This is a marquee matchup between Brady, one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, and Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, the young superstar set to be next greatest of all time.
This game is also a unique contest for the NFL. For the first time in the history of the Super Bowl, the game will feature a team playing in their own stadium. The Buccaneers made this year’s contest as their stadium, Raymond James Stadium, hold the game. It has led to the league reminding the team that this is a “neutral site” game, so things like the ship atop the stadium firing for Buccaneers big plays will not be allowed.
