Mahomes tried his luck at the last edition of The Match against Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers. Unfortunately, the result did not go in his favor. Whereas, Curry swung his club in the 2020 edition but ended up with the same faith as Mahomes. Therefore, the upcoming face-off will be a chance at redemption for both superstars.
