Past favors Tom Brady for Super Bowl masterclass

NFL analyst Mike Garafolo during a segment of GMFB talked about who he feels will have end the game with more passing touchdowns to his name.

Tom Brady. I’m thinking the Kansas City Chiefs down in the red zone. You know they’re gonna try something like maybe like Rose Bowl right parade last year. They didn’t make the score on that play but they did get the first down,” said Garafolo.

Garafolo added that he feels the Mahomes might end up with lesser touchdown passes due to the fact that the Chiefs do like to run the ball when in the endzone.

And going by history, the Super Bowl is Brady’s platform to shine. Something he believes will be the case this season as well.

“I’m thinking Tom Brady throws it to Mike Evans for the touchdown. The Chiefs run their touchdowns and I’d say Brady, who usually has multiple touchdowns and Super Bowls,” Garofolo added.
