Tampa quarterback Tom Brady could be hoisting the Vince Lombardi Trophy for the seventh time in his career, the first time without New England coach Bill Belichick sharing the platform with him and the ultimate example of not being as old as your age would dictate.
Or it could be Chiefs’ QB Patrick Mahomes joining Brady, John Elway, Troy Aikman, Joe Montana, Terry Bradshaw, Bob Griese and Bart Starr as quarterbacks who have won back to back championships.

Here are the six questions that could win you serious money.
How many completions will Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes combine for?
The answers range from 0-36, 37-40, 41-43, 44-46, 47-49 and 50+
Brady completed 20 of 36 in the Bucs’ 31-26 win over the Packers in the NFC Championship game. The lowest total of completions that Brady has in his nine previous Super Bowls came in his first one, when he completed 16 against the Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI.
Mahomes had 29 completions in the 38-24 win over Buffalo in the AFC Championship game. In his seven game playoff career, Mahomes has only completed less than 20 passes in a game once- 16 in the 2018 AFC Championship game against Brady and the Patriots.
Which team will have the most receptions and by how many?
Chiefs or Buccaneers with spreads of 0-1, 2, 3, 4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12 or 13+
The snap judgment in most cases would be to take the Chiefs on a question like this with Mahomes, Travis Kelce, Tyreke Hill and other weapons. But during the season, the Buccaneers numbers for receptions were close – 420 receptions for Kansas City, 410 for Tampa. And that’s with the fact that it took a while for Brady and his weapons – Chris Godwin, Mike Evans, Rob Gronkowski, Scotty Miller and the now-injured Antonio Brown- trying to get on the same page.
What team will have the most rushing yards and by how many?
Chiefs or Buccaneers with spreads of 0-5, 6-13, 14-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-59, 60-79, 80-104 and 105+
The wild card in this category could be Leonard Fournette, who has come alive for the Buccaneers in the playoffs and is the type of runner who could be a problem for Kansas City’s linebacker corps with his physical running ability. Clyde Edwards-Helaire has battled injuries, so Darrel Williams figures to be the Chiefs running back who could get the biggest load.
What team will have the most receiving yards and by how many?
Chiefs or Buccaneers with spreads of 0-9, 10-24, 25-39, 40-54, 55-74, 75-94, 95-114, 115-144 and 145+
Just like the most receptions question, it isn’t going to be as easy as you think. But Hill had a huge game against the Bucs in Week 12’s 27-24 win that saw him catch 13 passes for 269 yards and three touchdown passes. The Chiefs threw for 456 that day against the Bucs defense. It is likely to be a similar attack this time.
What team will kick the longest field goal and how many yards will it be?
Chiefs or Buccaneers with spreads of 0-33, 34-39, 40-42, 43-45, 46-47, 48-49, 50-51, 52-53 and 54+
Harrison Butker had two field goals for Kansas City in the 27-24 win back in Tampa on Nov. 29 while Josh Succop had one. The longest field goal among those three was 29 yards. Butker’s longest kick this year was 58 yards back in Week 2 and was 25 of 27. Succop was 28 of 31 with a long of 50.
Choose team to win and by how many points?
Chiefs and Buccaneers with ranges of 1-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12, 13-15, 16-18, 19-21, 22-25 and 26+
The Bucs are a lot better than they were at the end of November on both sides of the football and they have a ton of intangibles going for them- Brady’s Super Bowl history, not having to spend the week in a hotel bed, virtually all the pressure being on Kansas City. And yet, the Chiefs are that good. They’ve lost one game that matters since last November. That means something. Another close one looks on tap, but it looks like another Chiefs win.
