Chiefs through after an early scare against the Bills. Hope they can beat Brady and the Buccs next week to retain the Superbowl.
The Buccs must be slight favourites as they will be playing in their home stadium ? Surely there should be a neutral venue for this game ?
From what I understand, they set the venue at least 1 year before, sometimes 2 years in advance. It's just been pure luck that the home team making it to the Super Bowl hasn't happened before now. It should be a heck of a game.
As I am now at the age where I turn back into a pumpkin at midnight, I have the recorder set ready and plan to lock myself away from the outside world so that I can watch the game in full, after the cricket finishes tomorrow morning. Even going to turn the cricket commentary off, just in case.
The Chiefs were really, really disappointing but were completely dominated and outplayed by Brady and the Buccs.
Hill and Kelce never got a look in, Mahomes was hit numerous times, and the Buccs forced mistake after mistake.
Like Brady or not (I like him) I think he's proved this season with the Buccs that his past success wasn't just due to being part of the Patriots with Belichick. To join another team and completely transform them into Superbowl winners in his first season, at the age of 43, shows just what a brilliant player he is.
As for the Chiefs, it was said the only thing that could stop them winning a second SB was themselves, well tonight showed that partly to be true, but Brady and the Buccs never really gave them a chance.
Edit : Bit of a fairytale story for Gronk as well.
