It’s that day of the year again when the whole country stops down for one single football game, the Super Bowl. Super Bowl LV features the reigning champion Kansas City Chiefs who will play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Tampa Bay for their part will be the first team in NFL history to play the Super Bowl in their home stadium. The other matchup within the game that everyone will be talking about this evening is the face-off between the old guard, Tom Brady, who is chasing his 7th overall Super Bowl ring, and the new face of the NFL with young quarterbacks that can seemingly do everything like the Chiefs Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes, in his still very young career, will be already seeking his second ring in two years.
