It’s officially Super Bowl weekend, which is always bittersweet for me. On one hand, we’ve got the greatest sporting event on the horizon. On the other hand, that means we’re just days away from the longest offseason in professional sports.
This year, we’ve got a matchup many saw coming at the beginning of the year. Tom Brady took his talents to Florida and brought an extremely talented roster with him. After a month or two of getting settled, they appear to be firing on all cylinders now. The defense is great, the offense is solid, and Tom Brady is back playing like Tom Brady.
As for the Kansas City Chiefs, they’re the same team we’ve come to know over the past three years. We’re all just living in Patrick Mahomes’ world right now, and it’s time we realized we’re in the midst of a dynasty that could last years upon years. That isn’t to say you should sleep on their defense, either. They’ve managed to make Josh Allen and Baker Mayfield look pedestrian these playoffs.
Sunday should be a fantastic game, but Saturday is where the fun is really at.
Our Madden Sim series continues at 10:30 a.m. ET, as we see if virtual Andy Reid can lead the Chiefs to the first back-to-back Super Bowl wins since the 2003-2004 New England Patriots. Or will Brady get ring No. 8, but his first as a member of the NFC.
Throughout the broadcast, we’ll answer your Detroit Lions questions and have ourselves a nice little Saturday morning.
