When you factor in the best Quarterback in the league at Patrick Mahomes, winning becomes that much more attainable.
Let’s mix that combined with some out-of-this-world play calling as well as fantastic coaching, and what do you get? Dominance.
This is what Kansas City has been proving the past two seasons and is looking to stay red hot going into the Super Bowl against Tampa Bay.
It is very hard to say that Tampa Bay will have an answer for the dynamic duo. Kelce and Hill are the first wide receiver and tight end combo to go back to back 100+ receiving yard playoff games and are not slowing down.
The dangerous tandem has combined for 509 receiving yards, 38 receptions, and three TDs over the past two weekends. This is a larger number than the entire Buccaneers receiving core over their last two games.
Where the Buccaneers Could Struggle
While Tampa Bay may rank atop the league at best against the run, their passing defense ranks in the bottom ten amongst NFL teams. Kansas City ranks in the top three categories for passing attempts, completions, yards, interceptions, as well as first downs.
Let’s flashback to Week 12 when Buccaneers Cornerback Carlton Davis attempted to guard Hill. He was absolutely torched, and a similar performance could be lurking.
Yes, Tampa has a solid front four, including veterans Jason-Pierre Paul and Nkamukong Suh, but as of late, Kansas City’s offensive line has been performing solid. They only allowed the Bills to get to Mahomes once, and no negative yards were recorded on the play.
If the Kansas City defense shows up with grit and gets after Tom Brady, Tampa could be in for a long night. Brady threw three interceptions against Green Bay. If this is the case on February 7th, the Buccaneers will not win.
What to Expect From Kansas City in Super Bowl
Similar to the game plan against Buffalo, expect the Chiefs to bring a lot of pressure with constant varying blitz packages. Brady is nearly immobile with his legs, so the Chiefs need to collapse the pocket and force the ball out early.
On the other side of the ball, there is no reason for Kansas City to change up very much as far as their scheme. Teams have been unable to predict the Chiefs offense all season.
Expect Coach Reid to have Mahomes and company rack up some points and not take their feet off the gas in the Super Bowl.
This was how the Chiefs approached Buffalo and had success after falling early to a score of 9-0, only to score 21 unanswered points in the second quarter.
