Get Free Bets on Bucks vs Chiefs
The final game to be played on Sunday in week 12 of the current NFL season is between Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
With the game taking place at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, it is The Bucs who have home field advantage. The hosts come into this game with a 7-3 record while the Chiefs boats an excellent 9-1 record, so there is all to play for in what should be an exciting evening of football.
There are many reasons why this is being talked of as one of the biggest games of the season, including the meeting between Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes. This could be one of the most exciting games for NFL betting this season and you can take advantage of one of the many free bets available at maxfreebets.co.uk.
If you look at the statistics for this season, Mahomes has a pass completion percentage of 67.9% but there is little to choose between the two quarterbacks in that department, with brady averaging exactly 66%. However, when we come to yards, passing touchdowns and yards gained per pass, this is where we can see a difference developing.
Mahomes has 27 passing touchdowns to his name this season, leaving him 4 passing touchdowns clear of Brady at this stage. Mahomes is also averaging one yard more per pass than Brady but perhaps the biggest difference between the pair comes in the interception department. Brady has thrown 7 interceptions this season in comparison just only 2 interceptions thrown by Mahomes.
Going back to the 19th of October and a meeting with the Buffalo Bills, Mahomes broke an NFL touchdown pass record. When landing his first touchdown pass of the game, Mahomes became the fastest player in the Super Bowl era to reach 90 touchdown passes. It took the 25 year old just 37 games, beating the record set by Hall of Famer Dan Marino, who reached 90 touchdown passes in 40 games.
During the game against the Bills, Mahomes also recorded a touchdown pass for the 16th consecutive game. With figures like this, it is no surprise Mahomes signed a 10-year contract extension with the Chief this year. It is believed the deal is the most lucrative in the history of the NFL having led the Chiefs to a Super Bowl championship last season.
However, the experienced Brady will be hoping to teach the current star a lesson in the game on Sunday. The Bucs quarterback has not enjoyed a great start to the season but will be hoping to improve in this game and use it as springboard for the remainder of the campaign. Brady recorded three touchdown passes last weekend at Carolina Panthers, although all three passes were under 7 yards. There seems to be a lack of rapport between Brady and his receivers on deep passes and this is something the legendary quarterback will be hoping to address ahead of the game against the Chiefs.
Who do you think is going to come out on top between the two teams and will Mahomes or Brady be the man leaving the arena with a smile come Sunday evening?
