Regardless of who your team is all NFL season long, there’s no denying that Sunday’s game is a big one, and it’s time to take a side.
The reigning Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs will take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, pitting the two best quarterbacks in the league against each other.

In a poll of 2,200 adults, conducted by Morning Consult, results show 38% of adults will be rooting for the Chiefs on Sunday, while 27% will be backing the Bucs (the rest were undecided).
Similarly, 41% of people polled believe the Chiefs will come out on top, while 24% believe the Bucs will.
What’s unclear -- besides who the champs will be -- is what kind of viewership there will be, considering there could be fewer gatherings, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Of those polled, just one out of five said he or she plans to either attend or host a gathering. And only 28% said they’re “very” or “somewhat” likely to get together with people who live outside their home.
Will you be watching? Who will you be rooting for?
Note: The poll, which was taken Jan. 25-26, 2021, carries a margin of error of 2 percentage points, according to Morning Consult.
