More Sports Tom Brady, Patrick Mahones and The Weeknd star in Tamba Bay battle
It’s time for Super Bowl LV, with the biggest game of the NFL season finally here as Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers play Patrick Mahomes’ Kansas City Chiefs. As well as the action between the best two teams from this year, Miley Cyrus will be performing and The Weeknd will entertain the millions tuning in during the half time show. The start time is 00:30 CET (18:30 EST) and, in this Super Bowl LV live blog with the latest news nearest the top, we’ll be bringing you all of the updates on the score, the latest highlights and the action from the half time show.
It really is a perfect day in Tampa Bay for this Super Bowl. The weather is 73°F (23°C), with just a two percent change of rain. There is, though, 71 percent humidity. Just like last year, the big game is taking place in Florida, so Mahomes knows what it takes to win in this state at this time of year.
We now know the official inactives for both teams. The Chiefs’ inactives are CB BoPete Keyes, RB Darwin Thompson, TE Ricky Seals-Jones, DE Tim Ward, DT Khalen Saunders, QB Matt Moore and CB Chris Lammons. For the Bucs, it’s QB Drew Stanton, QB Ryan Griffin, RB Ke’Shawn Vaughn, WR Justin Watson, TE Antony Auclair, DL Jeremiah Ledbetter and DL Khalil Davis.
The big event is almost here. There is just one hour to go until kick off in Super Bowl LV, the biggest game of the NFL season. Patrick Mahomes’ Kansas City Chiefs are looking to defend their championship at Raymond James Stadium, but they’ll be taking on the home team as Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers represent the NFC.
One hour. #SuperBowl
