On Sunday the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Buffalo Bills and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Green Bay Packers to advance to the super bowl. This year’s super bowl will be held at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. Which means that the Buccaneers will be the first team in NFL history to play in the superbowl at their own stadium. 

The Buccaneers edged the Packers by a score of 31 to 26 after a late push by Packers to try and come from behind. The Buccaneers are led by 6 time super bowl champion Tom Brady who will look to capture his 7th title in his big career in the NFL. In this game the Bucs had been leading 21 to 10 at halftime after Brady ended the half to find a wide open Scotty Miller down field to widen the lead to 11. After Brady had thrown for 2 touchdowns in the first half, the second half started off with a fumble for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, which Brady was able to capitalize on. After that Rodgers was able to put up two straight touchdown drives. Brady threw 3 straight interceptions and the Packers were only able to capitalize on one of them. That was the story of the game as Aaron Rodgers future in Green Bay could be in jeopardy. 

Brady spoke after the game complementing his defense, “I thought the defense was spectacular. They’ve done that all year.” Brady will now head to Tampa hoping to win his seventh title and stop the defending champions, Kansas City Chiefs.

Patrick Mahomes and the defending champions defeated the Buffalo Bills by a score of 38 to 24. For this game it was a big moment for Bills Quarterback Josh Allen who had reached his first championship game. However, the reigning SuperBowl champions were able to erase a early 9-0 deficit to win. Coming into this game the status of Mahomes was up in the air as he was trying to clear concussion protocol as well as deal with his turf toe injury. However, it didn’t seem to affect his game much as the Chiefs are once again heading to the big stage. Mahomes threw 3 touchdowns on 325 yards passing. The Chiefs were able to punch their ticket to the SuperBowl for the second consecutive year. 

The Buccaneers and Chiefs will meet this Sunday at 6:30 eastern time on CBS for Super Bowl LV.
