The NFL season will finally come to a close on Sunday, Feb. 7, when the Kansas City Chiefsand Tampa Bay Buccaneers meet for Super Bowl LV. The conference champions are meeting at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, making the Bucs the first team to ever play a Super Bowl at their home stadium.
All eyes will be on Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady, but there are plenty of other under-the-radar players ready to star on Super Sunday. And the Chiefs are trying to make history as just the eighth franchise to ever win back-to-back Super Bowls and the first AFC team to ever beat an NFC team twice in one season. There are plenty of storylines — enough for you to play a game within a game at home.
So if you're wondering, "What football games are on today?" know this: There is one scheduled for today, Sunday, Feb. 7.
6:30 p.m. ET on CBS — Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla.
No player has won more Super Bowls than Tom Brady, but he has a chance to pick up his seventh ring in his first season with a new team. The Buccaneers built a dominant defense and a star-filled offense, which made it an easy decision for Brady to leave New England. Now all he needs to do to win another Super Bowl is knock off the defending champions, led by the one quarterback likely to take the GOAT title away from him.
The Chiefs look as dominant as they did last season, as they only lost one game Patrick Mahomes started this season. And even when they're down big, they're never out of it. Over the last two seasons, Mahomes is 8-1 in games in which he's trailed at one point by double digits. Three of those wins came in last season's playoff run, and he even trailed by nine in last month's AFC Championship Game. With Mahomes on pace to break nearly every passing record, no opponent can rest easy.
These teams met in Week 12, when the Chiefs beat the Bucs 27-24 at Arrowhead Stadium. Kansas City raced out to a 17-0 first-quarter lead, thanks to 203 receiving yards in that quarter alone from Tyreek Hill, but the teams have changed a lot since then. Safe to say that the rematch will be high-scoring once again — and one of the most entertaining games of the year regardless of the stakes.
