Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers stunned the red-hot Green Bay Packers 31-26 in the NFC championship, while Mahomes’ Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Buffalo Bills 38-24 in the AFC championship.
And given the 18-year age difference between the two star quarterbacks, fans are thrilled at the idea of 43-year-old Brady facing off against 25-year-old Mahomes in Tampa Bay in two weeks.
Some compared them to the two editions of Yoda from the Star Wars films and The Mandelorian TV series.
In winning on Sunday, Brady advanced to his 10th Super Bowl — nine with the New England Patriots and now one with the Buccaneers after signing with them before this season.
And like he did the last time he made it to the big game in 2019, he celebrated in style with his long-time Patriots teammate Rob Gronkowski, who also made the move to Tampa Bay before this season.
How Brady has helped to transform the Buccaneers has been remarkable, leading the team to the Super Bowl when last year they failed to even reach the playoffs.
For Mahomes, on the other hand, his stock is only on the rise.
