The Kansas City Chiefs are back in the Super Bowl for the third time in four seasons.
Having a Super Bowl record of 1-1, this game will be crucial to the legacy of Patrick Mahomes.
Mahomes has already shown he is one of the most talented quarterbacks of all time, but he needs more championships.
In a season where Mahomes is expected to win league MVP, he could cap it off with his second Super Bowl.
The Chiefs have already announced their captains for the big game and there are six of them.

DT Chris Jones, P Tommy Townsend, RB Jerick McKinnon, LB Nick Bolton, TE Travis Kelce, and Mahomes are the captains for the game.
Each player will play a crucial role in winning the Super Bowl.
The only player the Chiefs hope to keep off the field is Townsend, their punter.
But, the Super Bowl experience is heavily on the side of the Chiefs in this game.
It will be interesting to see if that will help them get off to a good start.
Facing a heavy rushing attack in the Eagles, if Kansas City gets behind early, they could be in serious trouble.
Two of those captains tasked with slowing down the run are Jones and Bolton.
Jones is the best defensive player on their team, and Bolton is their leading tackler.
Kansas City must find a way to make the Eagles one-dimensional, and force quarterback Jalen Hurts to throw.
With Mahomes under center, the Chiefs should have no problem scoring points, but getting stops could make the difference.NEXT: Chiefs HC Reveals Mecole Hardman Super Bowl Update
