Mahomes’ Chiefs After Revenge
The Chiefs have had a solid start to the 2022 season. Apart from a hit they took last week, the Chiefs won in Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals. That game finished 44-21 in favor of Kansas City.
In Week 2, the Los Angeles Chargers came close, but the Chiefs kept the Chargers within range and managed to win 27-24. That is why, at least to the Chiefs, a 20-17 loss to the Colts will not significantly impact the teams’ focus to keep adding more wins to their record.
Patrick Mahomes remains the unique piece that commands the Chiefs’ offensive. Mahomes is now leading the Chiefs with 857 passing yards and eight touchdowns.
Brady’s Buccaneers After Another SB Appearance
Tom Brady did not return to the league to just play his last season. However, there is a clear understanding among fans about two factors that keep setting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers apart from other teams.
One of those factors is having the most successful quarterback in the league’s history returning for his second Super Bowl with the team. The second factor is that the Buccaneers are a championship team that should not let their talent go to waste.
Brady is still the orchestrator of the offense. The seven-time Super Bowl champ leads the Buccaneers with 673 passing yards and three touchdown passes. However, he has been a little inconsistent lately, which means he’s going to have to focus more tonight.
