The Bruce Arians-led Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the Patrick Mahomes-led Kansas City Chiefs at the Raymond James Stadium on Sunday night.
The Florida-based franchise are second in their division behind New Orleans Saints and are in desperate need of a win.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are on a 7-4 record heading into Sunday’s game against the Chiefs. The AFC West table-toppers start as favorites for today’s game. But there’s a bigger debate going on behind the scenes of this high octane clash.
He said, “I look at it, Patrick Mahomes is the best player I’ve ever seen. There’s no question about it, in my opinion. I think he’s gonna break some year records that Tom Brady’s had. But overall, I don’t think anybody ever touches what Tom Brady’s done.
“All the successes, he’s had nine trips to the Super Bowl six victories, all those types of things, his consistency….When you talk about 20 years of what Tom Brady was able to do.”
“Guess what he played on both sets of rules, this the new rules that they have now and the rules that were set in place when he first came in the National Football League…
“So I think that what we are watching and what we are with witnessing is the changing of the guard of Patrick Mahomes arguably being the greatest at that position before him to be able to reach the accolades, the numbers in a 20-year span.
“I don’t think he’ll reach that. But I think as far as the championships and the numbers, I think he will,” Ryan said on the show earlier today.
The Chiefs are sitting at the top of the AFC West Division with an 8-1 record. They are in line to make the Playoffs once again and successfully defend their Super Bowl title.
But can Tom Brady and Co. pull off an unlikely win on Sunday in order to push for the NFC South championship? Time will tell.
