It’s Chiefs Versus Bucs, Tom Brady Against Patrick Mahomes In The Super Bowl

January 24th, 2021

This is what your quarterback should look like when he comes out of a tunnel at Lambeau Field in the NFC Championship game.

And that photo above reflects how The Goat will approach the Bucs’ attack-dog offense in two weeks, as it will need to come out sizzling against Patrick Mahomes and the defending champion Chiefs in the Super Bowl.

It’s official. It’s the Chiefs are coming to The Stadium on Dale Mabry Highway to face our beloved Bucs for the Lombardi Trophy.

It’s two rematches in one for Brady and Mahomes. There was their historic AFC Championship game won by Brady in overtime two years ago, and the Chiefs squeaking by the late-charging Bucs 27-24 two months ago.

For the NFL and TV executives, it’s a dream scenario. And frankly, Joe believes it’s a great matchup for the Bucs.

Speaking on SiriusXM NFL Radio last week, Hall of Fame head coach Bill Cowher was asked how he would approach stopping Mahomes in the AFC Championship game.

Cowher’s unprompted reply? Watch film of what Todd Bowles did after the first quarter when the Bucs hosted the Chiefs in November. Cowher talked about how well the Bucs safeties took Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill out of the game with double coverage.

Of course, those safeties are injured Jordan Whitehead (shoulder) and Antoine Winfield Jr. (ankle), but Joe is reasonably confident they’ll be able to play.

The Chiefs defense has holes, and the Bucs should be able to keep Tom Brady upright all game long.

    To be the best you gotta beat the best!

    Let’s hope our defense shows up and plays even better than they did today let’s go Bucs. Great win today

  3. Rod Munch Says:

    That stinks, I had a $100 pre-season bet for Bucs vs Bills…

  4. Oxycondoms Says:

    Chiefs lost their left tackle during the game

    I felt good about green bay buy the chiefs scare me a little bit, with that being said Bowles has been amazing the last 2 games, hopefully we get everyone healthy and play a great game.

  7. David Says:

    SMB and And Dean Will be one on one all day.
    I am guessing LVD will be on Kelce with a safety over top and Davis will be on Hill with the safety over top.

    That is how they shut down the Chiefs for almost 3 quarters.

    I fully expect the offense to do much better. Hell, the only reason they didn’t have over 40 today was because they stopped themselves most the second half.

    The Chiefs are the worst defense they’re facing in the past month

  9. Bucfan81 Says:

    We are a way different team now. This team has so much confidence. I hope we get Winfield and whitehead back cause we are going to need everyone.

  10. TampaTown Says:

    This is a dream scenario for the NFL. Their two biggest stars young and old. And Tom Brady is the MVP

  11. Ben the GA Buc Says:

    If we could beat the Saints, we can beat the Chiefs. Gonna be tough, but totally doable. Super Bowl Bucs!!!

  12. tbbucs3 Says:

    The Bucs left a ton of plays on the field today and still won (Ex. the Mike Evans overthrow).

    Jimmy G was 1 play away from beating the Chiefs in the SB last year.

    Now with the KC left tackle potentially being out, The Bucs have a unique opportunity to beat the mighty Chiefs.

  13. AJ Says:

    D was the difference in that 2nd half. Thought Brady wasn’t t good in with those decisions in the second half. But he was still a pro QB when we needed him to be. We got what it takes to win this thing…What a great feeling….

  14. Hey Ira Says:

    Ira who are you going to root for?

  15. Rod Munch Says:

    David – I have nothing but respect for LVD, and he’s incredibly underrated, but not even he can cover Kelce one on one. He’ll need help – and the best help is blitzing and blitzing and more blitzing and getting Mahomes off his game.

  16. Bucfanforever Says:

    If the Bucs lose, I vote the “Den of Depression” returns because I’ll be forever saddened.

  17. Jmarkbuc Says:


    Seriously? Get some antidepressants… and get me some now.

  18. AlV Says:

    If people remember the last game they only beat us by three and we were the better team from the 2nd quarter and onward. We shut down Hill after 1st Quarter completely, hopefully it won’t take as long.

    Also a huge thing to remember, Vita Vea was not in that game and he is a game changer they will also be down their top LT.

  19. David Says:

    Only two teams have scored over 27 points against the Buccaneers all year.
    Bucs 38 Chargers 31
    Saints 38 Bucs 3

    The highest scoring offense was Green Bay.
    Second was Tampa Bay.
    New Orleans and KC are tied at six.
    My point is, the Buccaneer defense has been stepping up against the best offenses out there.

    AND the offense is still putting up 30 + points a game in the playoffs.

  20. Miller5252 Says:

    Since we already beat the best the NFC had to offer we might as well knock off last years champ. Once we do that there will be no talk that the Bucs didn’t beat the best out there with no questions asked! Patty ain’t gonna like big Vea laying on him in 2 weeks!!! It’ll be a hell of a party in 2 weeks for the Bucs!!

  21. Im tired and 87 is right Says:

    This is our house! They already embarrassed us once. Time for us to repay our dues and straight up punch the Chiefs square in the mouth. Just like we TKO the Raiders in the last Super Bowl our defense will be ready to do the same to the Chiefs in this Super Bowl. Date and time is set for a show down of 4 quarters in Tampa. Go Bucs! This is our time!

  22. NDog is an idiot Says:

    The game plan against the Chiefs should be to ask “Brady is a Cheater” who is actually NDog, what he would do to win the game and then do the exact opposite!! Guaranteed win!!! “Brady is a Cheater (Ndog) is clueless about The game of Football!!

  23. Jerry Says:

    Opening line is Bucs are 3.5 pt underdogs.

    That’s OK. Bucs were 4 underdogs in Super Bowl XXXVII and we know how that turned out.

  24. Colonel Angus Says:

    Rodgers crying about DPI call at the end of game and the article basically saying Packers got hosed throughout the game on bad calls. Amazing they seem to notice all the bad calls the Bucs routinely get game after game. Their tears taste great!

  25. Pelsbuc61 Says:

    Chiefs lost their LT Fisher with an Achilles injury late in the game. Most likely out for the SB. Bucs pass rush need to keep up the pressure. Need to keep Vea in the game and hopefully we get back Winfield, Whitehead and AB.

  26. Tye Says:

    Andy Reid is one of the NFLs all time offensive minds… Hopefully the Bucs DC comes up with a successful game plan and their defense can execute it to keep them from constantly scoring..

    Brady and the offense will need to play well but I think they can get it done..
    Home Super Bowl!… YES!

  27. Pewter Power Says:

    The final score says they squeaked out a win against us but you watched the first matchup you know better. Todd Bowles it is up to you brotha two weeks to game plan and get defenders healthy

  28. Mic Says:

    Rod munch you need to hedge that bet if you are that far in

  29. Pelsbuc61 Says:

    Hopefully, Bowles will double up Hill and Kielce. Go Bucs! Tampa………Bay!!!!!

  30. Mic Says:

    Rod you need to hedge that

  31. adam from ny Says:

    this is all part of the 2020 season…

    who better to win the superbowl in a year like this than the bucs!

  32. David Says:

    Pretty funny, the first thing they said on NFL network is-
    they don’t know how Brady and the Bucs can keep up with Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.

    I get it, their offense is explosive, but they’re ignoring the fact that the Buccaneers put up more points than the Chiefs this year.
    Points per game Packers were one, Bucs were two.

    The big difference is defense. The Chiefs are middle of the pack. It’ll be the worst defense the Bucs have faced these playoffs.

  33. FortMyersDave Says:

    I saw that line Jerry. Makes sense and the money line also is at +150 Tampa. What caught my eye was the total which is 57.5. Its a big number but everyone just saw KC hang 38 on the Bills and the Bucs put 31 on the Pack so they are enticing the over here. Its gonna be a great 2 weeks being a Buc fan. One of the top 3 (perhaps 4 if you remember Philly 79/80) days ever to be a Tampa fan!

  34. Rod Munch Says:

    Mic – I did hedge, I put a whopping $1 on Tampa vs KC, so I won $25 on that. I just had a good feeling about Buffalo, and 66:1 odds vs Tampa, I figured I’d go big for once (I rarely do). They’re just prop bets, I figure I’m going to lose all the money I bet, but it makes the season more fun to watch. I’m really not worried about it since I’m still stoked about the Bucs finally getting back to the SB.

  35. RumRunner Says:

    As a Bucs fan for the last…..forever, f*×k hope ! LFG AND WIN! Nothing more, nothing less.

  36. TampaTown Says:

    Not trying to speak for him but I think Ira’s gonna root for the Bucs. Come on let us know!

  37. David Says:

    Aaron Rodgers is already whining and throwing his coach under the bus for kicking the field-goal.

    And they are whining about the holding call against Johnson on 3rd.
    The defender held onto his shirt with not one, but two different hands for several yards!

    They’re trying to compare it to Devon White reaching out and touching Hill in the end zone. What a joke

  38. Jmarkbuc Says:


    It’s picking against us has worked out pretty well so far.

    Rodgers may be looking to get out of GB… if he wasn’t so smarmy, we could see if he wants to sit a year behind the 🐐. Then we’ve got an MVP type for 3-4 more years

  39. cmurda Says:

    The Chiefs are a good team and a respect Andy Reid but the real question is how jive is Andy Reid’s face covering? It looks like it was fitted for an infant.

  40. Jmarkbuc Says:


  41. REDZONE BA Says:


    AR is GONE from GB, per that ONE play – i.e, his HC not trusting MVP QB in 4th down to win a game to advance to SB…. BA totally trusted Brady. “Redzone BA” got’er’done

  42. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    Aaron Rodgers has great talent and I guess he works hard too. Tom Brady has an extra intangible that Rodgers lacks. He is a class act. This is why he is the Greatest Of All Time as an NFL quarterback.

    Go Bucss!!! Dethrone the reigning champs!


    What ever happened to Ndog? And LaMarcus he still wants WinsTON to be QB for Bucs


    Kmart Jmart! Wtf are u talking about: “if he wasn’t so smarmy, we could see if he wants to sit a year behind the 🐐. Then we’ve got an MVP type for 3-4 more years“. OMG brooo this is close to the stupidest comment I’ve read in awhile

  45. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Has anyone noticed that Joe dropped the monikers for Brady and picked up “the Goat”?
    See how clean this article read without all the monikers….hopefully, this is the end of it.

  46. Devinwhiteshorse Says:

    Yes someone definitely has to shut up mr ” calling for help ” mocking our secondary

  47. Wesley Says:

    Bowles is gonna have to have one hell of a game plan.

  48. Jmarkbuc Says:

    No life

    Get a life. Thinking a little to hard.

  49. Rod Munch Says:

    Do the Bucs get the red and pewter at home? I hope they don’t have to wear those awful all-white uniforms, they look terrible.

  50. Elita Vita Says:

    Yikes you can get seats as low as 9000.00 per. Saw some tickets selling for over 24,000 a piece!

  51. Jerry Says:

    So I just read that the league changed their COVID protocols this morning for the Super Bowl. Super Bowl teams will not be allowed into Tampa until 2 days before the game. However, that’s obviously not going to apply to the Bucs because Tampa is home.

    Normally in a non-pandemic year, both teams arrive in the host city a week before the game.

    That means the Bucs may have a slight advantage of practicing in Tampa when the Chiefs won’t be allowed to come down here until Feb 5th. So basically the Chiefs will have to prepare for this to be a road playoff game and the Bucs can prepare as if it is a home game.

  52. ItzOK Says:

    The Bucs can score with the Chiefs. Can the Bucs just not give up the quick big plays and somehow come up with some stops. I think 38 Points wins the super Bowl.

  53. ModHairKen Says:

    Why aren’t the Chiefs changing their name? Highly offensive. How dare they! Kansas City Football Team.

  54. REDZONE BA Says:

    The O/U for this game will/should be EPIC for SB….95? Brady scores “at will” and so does Mahomes.

  55. Jmarkbuc Says:

    If Brady will just stop going all JW at the worst possible time, we should be fine.

  56. Joe Says:

    Why aren’t the Chiefs changing their name? Highly offensive. How dare they! Kansas City Football Team.

    Referring to a “chief” is sort of (in the eyes of most reasonable people) a sign of respect. It’s not like they are called the “squaws.”

  59. tbbucs3 Says:

    Joe, Cancel culture isnt full of reasonable people.

  60. Bradybucs Says:


    That 3 point final score was misleading. We were down big early and never caught up.

    Tyreek Hill had those ridiculous 200+ yards on the first half!

    We have to get pressure on Mahomes and rattle him. Unfortunately for them it looks like they lost Fisher their LT who was their best lineman. They’ll be without both their starting tackles.

    We have to find a way to slow down Hill. Need to jam him at the line and really disrupt his routes. Carlton Davis doesn’t have the recovery speed to stay close. We need a safety to always help with Hill.

  61. Rod Munch Says:

    Hit Mahomes over and over again, the worst thing Bowles could do is get scared from the 1st game and just sit back in a soft zone. Sure, Hill burnt the D in the first game — so what? Better to die by those big plays than just sit back passively and get cut to pieces, you lost both ways, but maybe with the blitz and pressure you get a mistake or hit Mahomes enough that it affects his play.

  62. MadMax Says:

    Well, i told yall, but anyways

    force them to run, if we do that we win!

    How bout this sht!!! Huge grin on my face babe! Get em TB12!

  63. Rod Munch Says:

    A little fun fact I just saw…

    “Patrick Mahomes was born in 1995, the year Tom Brady was drafted as a catcher by the Montreal Expos in the 18th round of the MLB Draft.”

  64. John Says:

    We need updates on brown,winfield and whitehead asap.

  65. Seemore Bucs Says:

    How about this factoid for a great omen. The Chiefs and Bills have met four times in the postseason after Sunday. The three previous times they played, the winner of the game eventually lost the Super Bowl. The Bucs are going to defeat the Chiefs in Super Bowl LV!

  66. Ozziethesportsjunkie Says:

    An 18 year spiral from greatness to average at best has finally come full circle and WE ARE THE BEST TEAM IN NFC and I see no way the Bucs faulter AT HOME with Lombardi trophy in the wings ..This team had one of the most bizzare seasons in the most bizzare year.
    At times it’s been thrown around The team was not cohesive enough,too many players to please with one ball ,Add in sone really bad losers on opening day ,Sunday night vs Saints and MNF Bears game most had this season written off and maybe next year Once again. …Next year started mid season as Brady got comfortable, Rojo established himself and Fournette found his role ..Thru it all the only glaring concern the pass defense and roasted Secondary ..I said last week that it’s time for this Bucs secondary to step up abs play CHAMPOINSHIP football ..Short of Carlton Davis today they did and they are !!
    Glazers are not a cheap ownership
    They wanted this and they delivered filling every piece needed and double booking some for depth
    We are back in the mountaintop !!! No more Bus fan on Bucs fan violence or rage ! It’s the golory days again Bucs fans !! Enjoy EVERY SINGLE SECOND !

  67. alton green Says:

    I didn’t read one of these comments because, as Bilichick always said “on to Cincinatti” Now it absolutely boggles my mind when i look at the KC highlights. Now no matter what thjs defense does, KC is going to score TDs. But there is only 2 ways to beat the Chiefs. #1 hope they beat themselves 2# put a frickn spy on Kelse and for God’s sake double Tyreek Hill. Don’t think that will work? Well here are the stats JUST FROM THOSE 2 PLAYERS!!!!!!!!!!!! Between Hill and Kelse they were targeted 26 times for 22 receptions for 290 %^$%^^$#$%^^^^ yards!!! LET THAT SINK IN.

  68. Kentucky Buc Says:

    Yeah Chiefs played great but the Bills weren’t even close to ready to play that game. Allen had people open but he just held the ball looking for Diggs all night.

  69. Cobraboy Says:

    I read the heavy-hitter advertisers are passing on this SB for fear they will “offend” some people/xirs.

    No Clydesdales, no wassup frogs, no Audi commercials, no Coke/Pepsi, just a boatload of social media stuff and covid feel-goos crap.

    I’m sure I’m not the only one to get the email from One Buc Palace offering a SB ticket package for $9001.00 pp, and hotel for $600 a night…

  70. bojim Says:

    Vea should be close to full speed by then.
