Six months ago, the Kansas City Chiefs began a journey with a banner overhead reading “run it back.” It was the selected campaign for a season in which they would face the greatest challenge from every opponent intent on knocking off the defending Super Bowl champs, one in which they’d lose several players to injury and a few more to an opt out clause in the midst of a global pandemic. On the verge of Super Bowl LV, however, the Chiefs are right where they wanted to be.
The only hurdle remaining for the Chiefs is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who have hopes of winning rings of their own in their own home stadium. For Tom Brady, it would be an incredible seventh Super Bowl win, but it would also bring championship glory to plenty of other talented players for the first time.
To their credit, the Chiefs are dealing with distractions even now as assistant coach Britt Reid, son of head coach Andy Reid, was involved in an accident that resulted in life-threatening injuries to a child (and injured more) after he’d admittedly had a few drinks, per reports. Further details will be forthcoming over Super Bowl weekend.
The Chiefs are hoping to establish a dynasty. The Bucs are hoping to taste SB glory. Here’s everything you’ll need to know about Super Bowl LV, including how to watch the game.
