Finally, NFL fans across the globe will be able to witness the ultimate clash of the old vs the new. For almost 2 decades, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots established themselves as the biggest dynasty in the NFL, winning 6 Super Bowl titles. However, in recent years, the Patrick Mahomes-led Kansas City Chiefs have threatened to do something similar.
Mahomes led the Chiefs to their first Super Bowl title after a gap of 50 years last season. They are threatening to repeat that feat with another strong display in 2020. The Chiefs are at the top of the AFC West Division table with an 8-1 record heading into Week 12.
They will start as favorites against an inconsistent Tampa Bay Buccaneers outfit led by Tom Brady.
Speaking ahead of Sunday’s matchup at the Raymond James Stadium, Tom Brady had only words of praise reserved for NFL’s golden boy Patrick Mahomes.
He said, “League MVP a few years ago 50 touchdowns, pretty hard to do, there’s not many guys that have done that. And, and then they continue that last year with the Super Bowl Championship and play an extremely high level this year.
“He’s just getting more and more comfortable. And that’s, you know, so much about playing quarterback is having experience, you know, learning from year to year, improving your routine. And, you know, he’s just doing a tremendous job.
“So they got, you know, they got their offense rolling, you know, obviously, a lot of talented players, and on defence have some talented players too, that make a lot of plays.
“So it’s a really well-balanced team. And, you know, we know we’re gonna have to play really well to beat them. So it’s going to be a big challenge for us,” Brady told the press in the pre-game interview.
The Chiefs have remained undefeated since Week 5, where they lost to the Derek Carr-led Las Vegas Raiders. However, they got their revenge last weekend with a 4-point win over the same opponents.
Bruce Arians will be well aware of the threat posed by the Chiefs’ free-flowing offense. The Buccaneers defense will have to be at their very best if they intend to stop Patrick Mahomes and Co.
Don’t forget to tune in and catch this blockbuster clash on Sunday night.
