NFL: AFC Championship Game-Buffalo Bills at Kansas City Chiefs Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The Super Bowl is just a little over 48 hours away and it’s time to start making some predictions.

This game is going to be — for a lack of a better word — insane.

You have the G.O.A.T versus a younger quarterback who seems to be on the same career path at just 25 years old. I think the craziest part about this matchup is that both quarterbacks are widely different in their respective play-styles. While at the same time, no lead, no matter how big, is safe when either of these two players are on the field.

As far as my prediction goes, I think Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs take this one. I also think it’s going to be a shootout that winds up being extremely close all the way through. My final score prediction is 37-34 with the Chiefs’ Harrison Butker kicking the game-winning field goal with under a minute remaining. Brady gets the ball back with seconds on the clock and fails to muster another comeback.

That’s my prediction. Now tell me yours in the comments below.
