The 2020 NFL season was unlike any other, but will wrap up with Super Bowl 55 in Tampa Bay on Sunday, February 7th.
With a chance to be the first repeat champions since the New England Patriots, the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs are the first team to compete for a title in their home stadium.
Following the AFC and NFC Championship games, the Chiefs were favored to win the Super Bowl. Most books had KC as 3.5-point favorites over Tom Brady and company.
Can Patrick Mahomes be the first quarterback the first team to win back-to-back titles since Brady did it? Or will Brady’s first year with the Buccaneers have a storybook ending?
