Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Kansas City Chiefs Battle for Lombardi

My perdition on the Super Bowl this season.

February 5, 2021

 The Chiefs and the Buccaneers are going to face off in Super Bowl LV on Feb. 7.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are playing at home in Raymond James Stadium, giving them a home-field advantage.

This will be the first time a team has had this advantage in Super Bowl history.

A Buccaneer Battle

The Buccaneers lost by a small margin to the Chiefs in the regular season’s twelfth week, 27-24,  one field goal away from a loss.

Tom Brady is an asset to the Buccaneers, considering Tampa Bay will play against the defending Super Bowl champs.

Brady has a lot of experience with the struggles of the Super Bowl.

Two Tampa Bay Safeties are injured with limited participation in practice which could hurt them with Mahome’s arm.

Those safeties are Jordan Whitehead and Antoine Winfield with a combined 3 picks.

Mike Evans is still playing a limited amount in practice with a knee injury.

Antonio Brown, also out with a knee injury, did not participate.

Another WR, Chris Godwin, has a hip/quad injury and fully participated in practice.

A Chief-ly Challenge

Patrick Mahomes II is a great QB as well, but having less experience may be a weakness during this game.

The Chiefs kept winning in the regular season with barely a field goal separating many of the scores.

The Chiefs have two offensive linemen, Andrew Wylie and Mike Remmers, out with injuries, and left tackle Eric Fisher is injured as well, which could be bad for Mahomes who already has suffered a concussion.

With the second strings guarding him, it will be uncomfortable for Mahomes to navigate the pocket.

Depending on if Mahomes gets injured or not, and the timing of that chance, the Chiefs are likely to win. 

However, if Mahomes gets hurt early in the game, there is a significant chance that the Buccaneers will walk away with the victory.

On the Courier News poll, where students were asked to predict the winner of this year’s Super Bowl, 69 percent of students chose the Chiefs while 31 percent predicted the winner to be the Buccaneers.
