Super Bowl LV matchup officially set

Two weeks of waiting ahead

NFL: AFC Wild Card Round-Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

There’s just one game remaining in the 2020-21 NFL season, and we’ve got two weeks of waiting ahead of us before it actually happens.

Super Bowl LV. . .55 for you non-Romans. . .will be taking place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on 7 February, and for the first time ever, the NFL teams that calls the Super Bowl stadium home will be participating in the game. Yes, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers went into Lambeau Field on Sunday and won their third straight road playoff game, taking down the Green Bay Packers by a final score of 31-26 to win the NFC Championship and the right to play the Super Bowl at home.

That was followed by the AFC Championship Game, and after a slow start, the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs turned on the jets and blasted past the Buffalo Bills by a final score of 38-24. The Chiefs will now attempt to become the first team to win back-to-back Super Bowls since the New England Patriots accomplished the feat in 2003 and 2004.

Super Bowl LV will be televised on CBS, with Jim Nantz and Tony Romo on the call. Kickoff time on Super Bowl Sunday is slated for 5:30 PM Central time, but there will undoubtedly be a bunch of pre-game action leading up to the big game.

For everything you need to know leading up to the big game, be sure to follow Arrowhead Pride, our home for the Chiefs, and Bucs Nation, our home for the Buccaneers. As for us. . .well, we’ll just continue bringing you as much Vikings stuff as we can find.
