During a recent interview, Kansas City Chiefs' star Patrick Mahomes shared his excitement over playing against six-time champion Tom Brady at the upcoming Super Bowl LV event.
Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs' quarterback, is expected to play against Tom Brady, 43, at the Super Bowl on Sunday, and he could not be more excited about the upcoming game.

When asked by Patrick if he ever saw himself playing against Brady, Mahomes admitted that it was not something he envisioned but described it as a special experience.
Mahomes made headlines last year when he led the Kansas City Chiefs to victory at the 2020 Super Bowl. For this, he was named the Most Valuable Player of the Super Bowl LIV.

Speaking about his career, Mahomes attributes his success to the support he receives from "great people" around him. The quarterback also added that he often tries to make the most of every opportunity given to him.
Ahead of Sunday's Super Bowl, Mahomes hopes to help his team land another victory and plans on doing his best to bring the dream to fruition.
Sunday's Super Bowl will be Brady's first with the Buccaneers since leaving the New England Patriots in March 2020.
While Mahomes has recorded quite an impressive run in the NFL so far, his admiration for Brady comes as no surprise as the 43-year-old has won the Super Bowl six times in the past.
Last Sunday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Green Bay Packers in the NFC championship. The victory earned them a spot at Sunday's Super Bowl LV, making it Brady's 10th Super Bowl.
While the Buccaneers' Sunday win was a thrilling moment, Brady chose to celebrate the victory in a rather heartwarming way.
Shortly after the game, the famous quarterback was seen in a warm embrace with his 13-year-old son John whom he shares with ex Bridget Moynahan.
More adorable was the support Brady received from his wife Gisele Bündchen, before the game. The supermodel shared a picture of herself and the couple's two kids, Vivian and Benjamin, clad in Buccaneers jerseys while posing in an outdoor location.
Bündchen accompanied the heartwarming photo with a caption revealing that they would be cheering Brady on as his team took on the Packers. Safe to say, his family's support brought nothing but good luck.
Sunday's Super Bowl will be Brady's first with the Buccaneers since leaving the New England Patriots in March 2020. With his new team, there is no doubt that this talented quarterback will record several achievements as he has done in the past
