Super wild-card weekend is just days away from materializing and we couldn't be waiting any more impatiently. The field has been set. The 2021 postseason has arrived and promises to deliver quality entertainment in abundance with an impending three-day marathon of must-watch contests. The race to claim an ever-elusive Super Bowl appearance begins now. The potential outcome of Super Bowl matches is wide-ranging and delivers several potential outcomes that would be deemed as exciting. With our imaginations firmly running wild, we've conjured up five dream-like scenarios we'd love to see take place at Super Bowl LVI at SoFi Stadium.
KANSAS CITY CHIEFS VS. GREEN BAY PACKERSPatrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers are arguably the two most talented quarterbacks in the National Football League and will be first-ballot Hall of Famers. These two elite signal-callers would undeniably combine to deliver an entertaining Super Bowl for the ages. Mahomes is looking to lead his Chiefs to their third consecutive Super Bowl appearance while Rodgers is looking to usher his Packers to the finals for the first time in a decade (Super Bowl XLV). These two powerhouses possess the capability to combine for 70 or more points in what would very likely be one of the highest-scoring Super Bowls in recent memory. This is truly a dream-like scenario for neutrals all over the globe.
TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS VS. KANSAS CITY CHIEFSA rematch of last year's Super Bowl wouldn't be the worst outcome. That meeting largely failed to meet expectations, as a haunting and aggressive Buccaneers front seven swarmed and pressured Mahomes on a snap-by-snap basis en route to a dominant and uneventful 31-9 victory. The Chiefs were left so shellshocked in the wake of defeat that general manager Brett Veach virtually reworked his entire starting offensive line in the offseason. The bold move has paid dividends as the Chiefs returned to the field in 2021 as a much better team in the pass protection department. Witnessing Tom Brady and Mahomes meet for football's ultimate prize for the second consecutive campaign would provide plenty of entertainment and worthy storylines.
NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS VS. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERSCan you even imagine? The breakup between Brady, Bill Belichick, and the Patriots will go down in the record books as one of the messier and more unlikely partings in professional sports history. We witnessed the Brady and Belichick reunion when the Buccaneers met the Patriots in a two-point thriller won by the Buccaneers in Week 4 earlier this season, but that pales in comparison when compared to a metaphorical Super Bowl meeting. A Belichick-Brady Super Bowl from opposing sidelines would likely garner the most media attention in Super Bowl history, and that's really saying something.
TENNESSEE TITANS VS. LOS ANGELES RAMSOne of the most nail-biting conclusions in any iteration of the Super Bowl occurred back in 2000 when Rams linebacker Mike Jones propelled his team to glory by tackling Titans receiver Kevin Dyson just short of the goal line as time expired. Fast forward 21 years later and both of these franchises have returned to prominence. A rematch of Super Bowl XXXIV between these two sides would make for must-watch television. Those teams were highlighted by such stars as Kurt Warner, Marshall Faulk, Steve McNair, Eddie George, Isaac Bruce, and Torry Holt. A rematch would include Aaron Donald, Derrick Henry, Odell Beckham Jr., Von Miller, A.J. Brown, Jalen Ramsey, and Julio Jones. Sign us up!
BUFFALO BILLS VS. DALLAS COWBOYSThis one hardly requires explanation. Josh Allen and Dak Prescott are two of the best and most effective signal-callers in the NFL. A stingy Bills defense enters the postseason allowing league-lows in yards per contest (272.8) and points allowed (17.0) per game. Don't pigeonhole Sean McDermott's Bills as a one-trick pony, however. Allen and the Bills can score points in bunches. The surging Cowboys meanwhile lead the league in offensive yards (407) totaled per game and points scored (31.2) per contest. The Bills trail not far behind at 28.8 points per game. What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object? This potential Super Bowl pairing would deliver the answer while pitting two of the most exciting quarterbacks in the game against one another on the largest stage imaginable.
