4. Green Bay Packers – Buffalo Bills: catchers in top form
The four-time Packers champions would clash with Bills losing all four Super Bowls. He started in the Super Bowl with his 1966 and 1967 victories at Green Bay, achieving both successes during Vince Lombardi’s training, and the trophy for the final victory was named after the excellent professional. Later came the 1996 and 2010 championships, while the Packers were eliminated in the 1997 season finale. The Buffalo Bills played only one Super Bowl less and, from 1990 to 1993, the head coach. Marv Levy and coach Jim Kelly played four times in a row in the grand final and always failed.
As for Green Bay, Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams as a control and capture partner and Buffalo as Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs. In the regular season, Rodgers passed with an accuracy of 70.7, Allen an accuracy of 69.2 percent, the first first and second quarter. Diggs was first with 127 catches and Adams with 115 seconds.
For the Packers finals – Bills to come together, Buffalo would have to win at their first Kansas City standout – it depends a lot on whether Patrick Mahomes, who suffered a concussion in the previous round, can play.
3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Kansas City Chiefs: Defending title or local victory
No team has been able to win the Super Bowl twice in a row since the New England Patriots, led by Tom Brady, won the Vince Lombardi Trophy by beating the Carolina Panthers in 2003 and the Philadelphia Eagles in 2004. Kansas City can now break a bad series of defending champions, moreover, is only against Tom Brady, then Patriots manager.
As a six-time champion, Brady, who already had a record, left New England at the end of last season and Tampa Bay is already at the gates of the Super Bowl. The finals will also be held at Buccaneers Stadium, which will allow Bruce Arians to play for the first time and win an SB at home. So far, only Peyton Manning has won the championship as coach of two different clubs, Brady can equate him to his former great rival.
It’s the only pair the two teams have met in the regular season, with the Chiefs winning 27-24 at home to the Buccaneers at Super Bowl on Game Week 12.
2. Buffalo Bills – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Satisfaction Tom Bradyn
This year, ready to play the playoffs for the first time in 25 years, Bills has spent the past two decades in the shadow of Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. He didn’t even make it to the playoffs between 2000 and 2016, and when he successfully achieved the regular season, he fell into the first hurdle of the playoffs. Brady won six Super Bowls during that time, finishing the AFC East group 17 times, of course always ahead of the Bills. Brady Bills ’eternal record against 32 wins and three losses.
Now that Brady is no longer the manager of New England (running for the group victory, Buffalo beat the Patriots), but in Tampa Bay, the Bills have a chance to take revenge on the brightest stage in recent years. twenty years ago, in Tampa, he lost his first 1990 Super Bowl to 20-19. Although on paper there are fewer possibilities for this pairing, in terms of its spiciness it is not far behind the first two high-profile clashes …
1. Kansas City Chiefs – Green Bay Packers: First Super Bowl reload
Which Super Bowl would you most like to see?
It would be a summit in every way, 54 years after the first Super Bowl, the two participants in the first grand final would meet again in the final. In January 1967 in Los Angeles, the Packers defeated the Chiefs 35-10.
The first two highlights would clash with each other, for the first time since the Philadelphia-New England final three years ago. As for managers, the best would also meet, with 2010 champion Aaron Rodgers as the number one MVP title hopeful, at 37, to receive recognition for the third time after 2011 and 2014. Patrick Mahomes , 12 years younger than him, also became MVP in his first full season in 2018, winning a championship in the second. Like Rodgers, he plays in a spectacular and imaginative way, improvising a lot, which makes his team’s offensive play not only effective, but also spectacular and enjoyable.
