The matchup is set for Super Bowl LV (55).

American Football Conference (AFC) champions the Kanas City Chiefs will face off against their National Football Conference (NFC) counterparts the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the National Football League’s top prize on Feb. 7 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Fla.

On the field, the game has multiple storylines.

For the Chiefs, for example, Patrick Mahomes is looking to quarterback his team to a second consecutive Super Bowl victory. The New England Patriots were the last team to repeat as champions in 2003 and 2004.

Those Patriots teams were led by Tom Brady, who will be lining up behind center for the Buccaneers on Feb. 7.

For Brady, the upcoming Super Bowl is his tenth appearance in the NFL’s biggest game but represents his first as a member of a different team.

If Brady and the Buccaneers can win, he will become the first quarterback ever to win a Super Bowl in both conferences and the team will capture its first championship since defeating the Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII (37) in 2003.

Football analysts and experts will spend the next weeks dissecting personnel and using other advanced analytics to make predictions.

Farms.com is doing its own game analysis using 2019 stats from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agriculture Statistics Service.

The breakdown will feature Missouri against Florida.
