1. Kansas City Chiefs vs. Green Bay Packers

Super Bowl LVII featuring Patrick Mahomes as he leads the Kansas City Chiefs against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.

Just imagine the sheer number of State Farm commercials we would see.

Sadly, they won’t contain Rodgers anymore since the insurance agency dropped him after he said he was “immunized” but we would still see plenty of Patrick Mahomes. And the internet still exists so we could see plenty of replays of Rodgers watching Mahomes lather up his steak with ketchup.

What we would also see is two of the best quarterbacks of all time trying to outduel one another. On top of that, they would each be trying to put another notch in their legacy as both Mahomes and Rodgers lost their No. 1 receivers from a year ago.

For the Packers, they traded Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders and the Chiefs sent Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins. They each have re-worked receiving corps, including former Packer Marquez Valdes-Scantling in Kansas City and former Chief Sammy Watkins in Green Bay.

The Packers also have a stout defense, which was what stopped Mahomes in his last trip to the Super Bowl as the Tampa Bay defense made life miserable for him.

Kansas City might not be as strong on defense but Mahomes has proven in the past he can make up for that with his ability to put up points in a hurry. In the end, the bigger the stars are, the better the Super Bowl is. And these are two of the biggest stars in the game, making this a Super Bowl worth tuning in for.
