We are one step away from the Super Bowl. When the Buccaneers face the Packers in Lambeau and the Bills travel to face the Chiefs, we’ll get to see who goes in and who ends up back on the couch with the rest of us.
The first game, kicking off soon, will pit the Bucs against the Packers. I’m rooting against Tom Brady and a divisional rival—I can’t stand the thought of Tampa Bay going from basement dwellers who haven’t been able to credibly talk trash in a decade to the only team in the NFC South with two Super Bowl wins—and fortunately they have an uphill battle against a lights-out Green Bay team.
The second game this evening is Bills-Chiefs. That pits the defending Super Bowl champions against a Bills team with the most unfortunate Super Bowl history in the league—they made and lost four straight!—and I’d love to see Buffalo move on.
We could get a Chiefs-Packers game, which would be a rematch of the very first Super Bowl, or a Bills-Buccaneers game that would pit two franchises who have largely struggled over the last two decades against one another. We could also get Chiefs-Buccaneers, the worst possible combination, or Bills-Packers, which would be an interesting game. Let’s see what happens, and you can use this for your open thread.
