What’s Going To Happen, Who’s Going To Win The Super Bowl
The Tampa Bay running back didn’t get a whole lot of work during the season, but when the playoffs kicked in he was unwrapped with 48 carries in the three games after carrying it 49 all season long.
He’s not running for big yards, but he has a touchdown in each of the three games and is coming up with the tough runs to help set a tone.
Oh sure, this will be Tom Brady vs. Patrick Mahomes in a whole slew of ways, but it’ll be the hard running of Fournette early on that will let Bucs settle in.
The Bucs will take a first quarter lead as Mahomes and company struggle just a wee bit, but everyone will wait for the explosion to come, because that’s what Kansas City does.
Blink, and 21 points later it’s all Chiefs … but that’s not going to happen.
Tampa Bay doesn’t do anything to control the clock, but Brady will be great on third downs, the defense will come up with just enough stops in the second half to force field goals against touchdowns, and Fournette will be the hammer to close it all out before Brady hits that one big third down throw to end it.
It’ll be Brady’s MVP – just because – but the defense and running game will allow that to happen.
