With Tom Brady leading the Bucs into his tenth appearance on the Super Bowl stage, it is the first time the Bucs will see the big stage in about 20 years. On the other hand, young superstar, Patrick Mahomes is making his second appearance with the Chiefs in his four seasons. Evidently, it will be the battle of the young versus old as tension between Chiefs and Bucs fans heat up on social media over the week in preparation for the big game. As for a dedicated Jets fan myself, I will definitely be watching the game and rooting for the Chiefs with Mahomes leading charge. Personally, I just haven’t been a fan of Brady since ‘Deflategate’. Plus, the ongoing rivalry between the NY Jets and Brady’s long-contracted team, the Patriots left a bad impression.

Who do you think will win? And Why?

After this long season, my predictions for this upcoming Super Bowl LV are that the Chiefs will come out victorious with a slight lead over the Bucs. Some things to keep in mind are the records from this past season. Ultimately, I think it will be Tom Brady’s fourth quarter play that will reveal the winner. In addition, I really want to see Patrick Mahomes win his second consecutive ring, which hasn’t been done since Tom Brady’s repeat win in Super Bowl 39. All in all, I predict a 30-27 win for the Chiefs. Although, keep an eye out for a Bucs comeback and Tom Brady’s possible seventh Super Bowl ring.

What are your plans for the game?

After a year of craziness and lockdowns, I can’t wait to spend some time with my roommates to watch the game and eat a lot of food. Although, pretty sure my roommates will mostly be looking out for the halftime performance by The Weeknd.

Favorite Super bowl memory?

My favorite Super Bowl memory is in 2012 when the NY Giants took on the New England Patriots. During Super Bowl XLVI, my cousins came over to my house and we had a big viewing party. It was even better because my cousins are huge Giants fans, so the mix of junk food and yelling was a perfect way to spend the big game.

Who do you want to win?

I want the Chiefs to win just because I don’t like Tom Brady. You’ve seen him win so many times, everyone wants an underdog.

Who do you think will win? And Why?

Probably Tom Brady because he’s like the greatest of all time.

What are your plans for the game?

I’ll probably go home and watch it with my dad.

Favorite Super bowl memory?

I went over to my friends in eighth grade and it was nice to reconnect and watch the game together.
