It will be a tale of two quarterbacks in this year’s Super Bowl, which will be played on Feb. 7 at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla.
Veteran Tom Brady, 43, the quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, will be playing in the big game for an incredible tenth time.
Brady will be up against Kansas City Chiefs Quarterback Patrick Mahomes, 25, who will lead the Chiefs in their bid to defend their Super Bowl title.
The Chiefs dominated the Buffalo Bills in Sunday’s AFC Championship game played at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo., winning by two touchdowns: 38 to 24.
Mahomes threw for 325 yards, leading the Chiefs back to their second straight Super Bowl appearance.
Many players on both teams have spoken about their Christian faith as well as Clark Hunt, the chairman, and CEO of the Chiefs.
When accepting the AFC Championship trophy named after his father Lamar Hunt after Sunday night’s game, Clark Hunt on national television gave recognition to his team, their fans, his late father who founded the AFL and the Chiefs, and to God.
“I’m so honored to accept this trophy on behalf of this incredible team, and the best fans in the National Football League,” Clark said Sunday night. “The Lord has blessed our family in so many ways. Coach (Andy) Reid, what a game today. Great job today. My dad would love the grit and determination of this team.”

Clark and the Hunt family have been very outspoken about their faith in Christ over the years.
“I want to thank the Lord for blessing us with this opportunity. The glory belongs to Him,” Clark said after receiving the AFC trophy last year. And after winning that 2020 Super Bowl, Clark said, “I want to thank the Lord for blessing our family with all these incredible people who have helped us bring this championship home.”
During a speech last November to the CityFest East Texas Men’s Luncheon in Tyler, Texas, Hunt told the audience he makes his Christian faith a top priority for his staff, according to the Tyler Morning Telegraph.
The Chiefs’ Arrowhead stadium offers a nondenominational pregame chapel service for fans who attend the games. Hunt and his family regularly attend, according to sportsspectrum.com.
