Tom Brady and Patrick Maomes will meet in the Super Bowl LV on February 7, after leading their countries to victory in Championship Sunday.
Brady’s Tampa Bay Bookers stunned the red-hot Green Bay Packers 31-26 in the NFC Championship, while the Mahomes of Kansas City 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 with the idea of 43-year-old Brady facing up to 25-year-old Mahomes in Tampa Bay in two weeks.
Some have compared them to the two editions of Yoda from Star Wars and the TV series Mandelorian.
Others tweeted announcing the clash of the two titans with photos of two goats – suggesting that Brady and Mohammes are two of the greatest players of all time, while others compared him to a young Kobe Bryant facing the older Michael Jordan.

Former Dallas quarterback Cowboys and now CBS commentator Tony Romo described him as an “all-time game” and compared him to “LeBron and Jordan, who play in the NBA Finals.”
This will be the first Super Bowl match between the winning quarterbacks from the previous two Super Bowls.
In Sunday’s win, Brady qualified for his 10th Super Bowl – nine with the New England Patriots and now one with the Buccaneers after signing with them before this season.
And as he did the last time he reached the big game in 2019, he celebrated in style with his longtime Patriots teammate Rob Gronkowski, who also made his move to Tampa Bay before this season.
The way Brady has helped transform the Pickers is remarkable, leading the team to the Super Bowl when they failed to even reach the playoffs last year.
For Mahomes, on the other hand, his shares are only rising.

He will play in his second straight Super Bowl after winning it last year and join Kurt Warner, Brady and Russell Wilson as the only quarterbacks to reach the Super Bowl twice in their first four seasons in the NFL, according to NFL Research.
Five-time NBA star Damian Lillard even compares Mahomes’ ability to that of Steph Curry on Instagram.
