After a season full of uncertainty, Super Bowl Sunday 2021 is upon us! Here is all you need to know to get ready for the big game!
As is often the case by the time the Super Bowl arrives, two of the NFL’s best teams this season remain. The Kansas City Chiefs, last year’s Super Bowl Champions, who posted a 14-2 regular season record will take on the Tom Brady led Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are the first team in league history to host the Super Bowl on their home field. Brady is making his 10th Super Bowl appearance, where he currently holds a 6-3 record. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is making his second consecutive appearance after defeating the San Francisco 49ers in Miami one year ago. This is the Chiefs fourth Super Bowl appearance in franchise history, the second for the Buccaneers. Each team has won one.
