The Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers will face off in Super Bowl LV (aka Super Bowl 55 or the 2021 Super Bowl) on Sunday, Feb. 7 in Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. The Chiefs will try and become the first team since the New England Patriots (2003-04) to repeat as Super Bowl champs, while the Buccaneers have earned the honor of being the first team to play for the Lombardi Trophy in their home stadium.
This will be the fifth Super Bowl played in Tampa and the third at Raymond James Stadium. The last time the Super Bowl was hosted by Raymond James Stadium was in 2009. Super Bowl XLIII between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Arizona Cardinals was one of the most entertaining ones ever played as it featured a 100-yard interception return for a touchdown on the final play before halftime. There also were two touchdowns in the final three minutes of the fourth quarter, including the game-winning toss from Ben Roethlisberger to Santonio Holmes with just 35 seconds remaining. Holmes' heroics netted him MVP honors as the Steelers won 27-23 for their sixth Super Bowl victory in franchise history.
