Mahomes, KC to visit Brady, Bucs in SB rematch


The Kansas City Chiefs will visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on October 2 of the upcoming 2022 season, setting up a Super Bowl LV rematch in what will be the final installment of the Patrick Mahomes-Tom Brady rivalry.

The NFL announced the Week 4 game on Thursday morning, ahead of the release of the full regular season schedule later in the day.

The match will mark the sixth meeting between Mahomes and Brady and will air on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football.” Brady is 3-2 in games against Mahomes; he played three as a member of the New England Patriots and two with the Buccaneers.

The Bucs beat the Chiefs 31-9 in Super Bowl LV behind three touchdown passes from Brady, who was named the game’s MVP and won his record seventh career title. Mahomes struggled in the Super Bowl loss, throwing two interceptions.

Mahomes, 26, passed for 4,839 yards and 37 touchdowns last season and led the Chiefs to their fourth straight trip to the AFC Championship Game, where they lost to the Cincinnati Bengals.

Brady, who turns 45 in August, led the league with a career-high 5,316 passing yards and 43 touchdowns in 2021, his second season with the Buccaneers.

The NFL has already announced several matchups for the 2022 season, including a Week 2 Monday Night Football doubleheader, the league’s 2022 International Series games, and one of three Christmas Day games.
