If you are one of those huge football aficionados, there is no reason to miss the Super Bowl LV finals this February 7, 2021. It is the conclusion of the NFL season after it opened last September 2020. Despite the halt brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, the NFL has successfully navigated its way to another Super Bowl.
Besides having limited audience participation this year, the NFL has written a different Super Bowl story. During the opening games, the Ravens and Stellers were among the teams making a charge, but later lost their momentum. Teams like the Bills, the Browns Washington football team, the Saints, and Seahawks showed a resurgence but also ultimately missed out.
In a few more days, football fans will get their feet on the ground as a thrilling match is about to end the NFL storyline. As you are about to witness the NFL Super Bowl with FanDuel and the betting games it carries, here's everything you need to know before getting those signboards up to cheer on for your favorite team.
The two teams competing for the Lombardi trophy this year are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (14-5) and the Kansas City Chiefs (16-2). The Bucs will take on the underdog role (+3.5). But, of course, Tampa Bay is the first team to ever play in a Super Bowl that's hosted by its home stadium.
Meanwhile, the Chiefs will take the favorite role after finishing impressively in the AFC, garnering the most number of wins. The Bucs are lpoking for their first Super Bowl win since the 2002 season and look to go 2-0 all-time in Super Bowls.
The Chiefs are looking for back-to-back titles which last happened with the New England Patriots to conclude the 2003 and 2004 seasons.
The Super Bowl begins on February 7, 2021, at 6:30 PM Eastern Time. The full match is broadcasted by CBS, with commentators Jim Nantz and Tony Romo. The coverage will also include sideline reporters Evan Washburn, Jay Feely, and Tracy Wolfson to cover everything from the biggest to the tiniest details of this football showdown.
This game marks the fifth time that Tampa has hosted a Super Bowl, and the first since February 1, 2009 when Pittsburgh toppled Arizona.
Capacity is expected to be capped at roughly 25,000 fans.
Every year, the Super Bowl features the biggest stars in the halftime show. In the past, we've seen Michael Jackson, Te Who, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez, and Shakira entertaining the fans and the players. In the Super Bowl LV, the Canadian band "The Weekend" will headline the halftime show at Raymond James Stadium.
Patrick Mahomes vs. Tom Brady. Brady is a familiar face in the Super Bowl as the 43-year old will be playing in a record 10th Super Bowl. He was 6-3 in these games with the New England Patriots. The 25-year-old Mahomes is looking to go 2-0 in Super Bowls and continue his astonishing rocket ride in the NFL.
Despite Brady's G.O.A.T. status and Mahomes' relative youth, it was Mahomes' Chiefs who were expected to be here. Most thought that Tampa Bay's Brady experiment would fail. After a rough start, the relationship between head coach Bruce Arians and Brady seems to have jelled quite nicely.
The similarity of their stat comparisons are almost eerie. The younger Mahomes threw for 4,720 yards in 2020 with 38 TD's and 6 INT's. Brady threw for 4,633 yards, 40 TD's and 12 INT's.
The Bucs and the Chiefs are not only vying for the Super Bowl title this year. They also want to showcase the best people on their team apart from Brady and Mahomes. The Chiefs' list of talented players include Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Daniel Sorensen, and Tyrann Mathieu.
Meanwhile, the Bucs equal that line-up with a receiving corps of Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Ron Gronkowski, Scotty Miller and Antonio Brown, plus Ronald Jones at RB and a defense led by Devin White, LaVonte David and Ndamukong Suh.
The 2020 NFL may have started tough, but it has produced the two best teams this season. Now that the Super Bowl LV finale is just a few days away, football fans are even more excited to witness who will reign supreme this season.
The Kansas City Chiefs are looking to win an epic successive Super Bowl title, while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are vindicating a story of redemption if they make it. Who do you think will win the Super Bowl LV Lombardi trophy? We soon will see.
