On Sunday, February 7, the Kansas City Chiefs will be taking on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Super Bowl to put an end to a fairly unusual season. After a year filled with Covid-19 cases, a large number of injuries, no fans, and a playoff game played on Nickelodeon, the season is surprisingly ending in the way most people thought it would: a young great in Patrick Mahomes versus the GOAT Tom Brady facing off in the Super Bowl.

I personally expect the Chiefs to win, as the Kansas City offense is too powerful. However, I think it will be a close and high scoring game, as the Tampa Bay offense is one of the best in the NFL, and their defense is very well rounded and often does not get the credit it deserves.

RB students seem to feel the same way about Kansas City winning this matchup. 

“I think the Chiefs will win because nobody can stop the power of Tik Tok dances, and Tom Brady can’t throw more than two deep balls a game,” said RB Senior Eric Watson.

In the last game Brady played versus the Green Bay Packers, he threw three interceptions that, luckily for Brady, did not turn into touchdowns that would have won Green Bay the game. It will be interesting to see how Brady performs in this game, as those mistakes would likely cost the Buccaneers the game if made against the Chiefs.

The Buccaneers also have a lack of experience in the Super Bowl, as Tom Brady is one of the only players on the roster who has been to the Super Bowl before.

“Brady can only take the Buccaneers so far. A lot of the guys on the Bucs have never seen a Super Bowl. I think it will be close, but the Chiefs are going to take the win,” said RB Senior Raul Villareal.

Many RB students are rooting for the Chiefs to win the game, but some RB teachers believe in the Buccaneers.

“I am picking the Chiefs to win by 10 points, but I am rooting for the Bucs to pull the upset. It’s hard to pick against the greatest player in the history of the NFL,” said RB P.E. teacher Dallas Till.

Overall, the Super Bowl will be both a fun and unique game to watch. No matter which team comes out on top, the matchup will surely be one for the ages.
