Super Bowl 55 between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers is shaping up to be must-see TV for many reasons, but the biggest one is the epic quarterback matchup between Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady.
Brady, who’s making his 10th Super Bowl appearance, is looking to add another ring to the collection. The six-time Super Bowl champion and four-time Super Bowl MVP winner is out to prove he can win the big game without his former coach Bill Belichick in New England while simultaneously giving the Bucs their second Super Bowl in franchise history.
Mahomes is back in the Super Bowl for the second time in as many years after his Chiefs pulled off a come-from-behind 31-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl 54.
In order to properly handicap Super Bowl 55, bettors would be wise to handicap how the QBs compare next to each other. That’s why we did a deep dive into Tom Brady vs Patrick Mahomes stats.
Brady vs Mahomes Could Make for an All-Time Super Bowl
CBS sportscaster and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo declared Sunday’s Super Bowl “one of the greatest matchups in sports history,” with the QB duel of Brady vs Mahomes akin to LeBron James facing Michael Jordan in the NBA Finals.
“This game is bigger than people realize,” Romo said. “Twenty, 30, 40, 50 years from now, this is the game people are going to go back to.” Another example, Romo said, would be Tiger Woods battling it out against Jack Nicklaus in a golf tournament when both were in their prime.
Brady, 43, will be looking to pad his Super Bowl stats and cement himself as the greatest quarterback of all time. The 25-year-old Mahomes, whose father is only five years older than Brady, is heading into what’s likely going to go down as the biggest game of his career with the opportunity to get one over on Brady.
