Lots of good options and potential storylines. So, what matchup do you want to see and why?

Zero bad options, though once NE got eliminated weeks ago, I was hoping for a TB-Buf matchup. So that's what I'm sticking with.

Picked Bucs-Bills because I live in Tampa and I have lots of friends who like the Bills. But really, any matchup should be juicy and feature good footbaw. Feels like we have the 4 best remaining.

I want TB12 to get #7, and doing it to the Bills would just be hilarious.

Also, I "football hate" Mahomes, Kelce, and Rodgers, and full-on human hate Hill.

I'm eager to see Bucs-Bills and have Tom Brady break the hearts of the Bills fans, again. I know they've (deservedly) gotten a lot of good press lately with contributions to opponents' charities, but their hatred for Brady / the Pats runs deep.

There are good story lines and intriguing match-ups in all the games. I hoped for-picked TB-Bills as my pre post-season prediction, and I'll stick with it, but I'm a happy banker as long as Brady's playing for #7. But him beating Chiefs and the super-kid would be awesome.

My preference is Brady having a chance to win so my ranking would look like:

Bucs-Bills
Bucs-KC
GB-KC
GB-Bills

Bucs-Bills is too hilarious to pass up. The thought of the Bills finally getting back to a SB only to possibly lose to Brady would be a pefect cap to a 2020 season. KC-GB would probably be best game. But really, any matchup is going to be great.

I have a good friend who is a Bills fan. For years she has prayed for Brady to retire or leave New England. For Brady to beat the Bills this year would be hilarious.

For me anyway.

Yup. I'm just in it for the schadenfreude now. Brady coming back to haunt the Bills one last time would make for endless fun. Don't really think there's much of a storyline to any of the other matchups, aside from potentially "passing of the torch" if it's Brady x Mahomes.

Anything but Brady vs. Mahomes, because that AFC Championship was the last great BB-Brady moment (the Rams Super Bowl was nice but a snoozer), and because the hype would be insufferable.

Packers/Chiefs.

As a Boston sports fan, I can never root for a NY team. And Packers/Tampa is a toss up, but I think Packers have a better chance against KC and I really don't want to see KC get even more cocky.

Depends who the KC QB is

TB having a SB at home and losing to Henne would be kind of funny

In the other hand I love Gronk and hate Tyreke and Kelce
And definitely don't want KC to repeat/go for a dynasty

This would be an easier decision if Gronk was on one of the other 3 teams

I kind of like Bills and GB now but used to hate them (with Thurman/Favre)

I'm not sure Rodgers vs Mahomes would be any better in terms of hype, but yah... I can see people driving me insane in future GOAT conversations talking about Mahomes' record against Brady when he didn't face TB12 until the guy was in his 40s.

I voted Packers/Chiefs as IMO, that would be the best match up.

That depends on whether Mahomes recovers from getting the wind knocked out of him, but according to his neurologist girlfriend, he's fine.

Bucs/Bills would be a Greek tragedy as if that happens, you just know he'll beat the Bills, probably thanks to a last second TD pass to Gronkowski.

I don't think their fans would ever recover.

I say Bucs/Bills. Either outcome is a great story in that matchup. Either the Bills have their own 2004 level run where they exercise all the demons by beating Brady for a championship, or the flip - they finally see the Brady brick wall torn down in front of them, only to realize that it was just rebuilt further up the road in a more painful location.

Bucs/Bills for me. Seeing TB12 beat KC would be my first-choice result, but I don't want to take any chance that those Chiefs Planet mouth-breathers even get to sniff another Lombardi.

As someone that has actually been rooting against Brady all season, 100% this.

It's been a weird year.

No matter who is playing the Super Bowl, they hype will be off the charts. Every team left is very ripe for hype.

The Chiefs are a real threat to dethroning the Pats as the latest NFL dynasty, so I'd rather see Buffalo circle the wagons against either NFC team. Brady doesn't play for my favorite team anymore, so I can't really say I prefer him to the Packers.

Bills vs TB would be my preference followed by Bills vs Pack. Packer/Chiefs might be the first SB that I do not watch in a very long time.

Packers vs Bills here.

Ive always, for 30+ years have considered the Packers almost like a 2nd team....never a "fan" but always the team that if my team isnt in it, i support. Love the fan base, love the passion.

Bills...obviously cant support the Chiefs. Ive always liked bills fans since I went to school in Syracuse, but the Bills mafia BS is a bit much.

I'll root for Tom if its Bucs vs Chiefs tho...

In order for me

1- Packers Bills
2a- Packers Chiefs
2b- Bucs Bills
3- Bucs Chiefs

Bills/Bucs. 4 time SB loser seeking redemption vs. Brady's quest for #7.

First and foremost I want to see Brady win #7. He earned the opportunity to move on to a football life outside of New England and has made the most of that opportunity. I voted Bucs vs Chiefs for a couple of reasons. Even though I'm not a big Andy Reid fan he's done a great job with this team and while I'm also not a fan of a few of their players, the talent there is a thing of beauty to watch. Mahomes has quickly become the face of the league and to this point he's accepted that mantle in a way that makes it hard to root against the kid and I'd like to see him back on the NFL's biggest stage while hoping TB12 can find a way to best him. That said I'd be more than OK with a Buc's vs Bills match up as well. I'd definitely be rooting for Tampa to win the game 'cuz Bills, but I have enjoyed watching Josh Allen's steady progression since coming into the league. There are some good young and exciting QBs in this league so I'm good with either AFC representative. On the flip side, as good as Green Bay has been this season I have no interest in seeing them play in February. Rodgers has had a stupid good season in his second year under LaFleur and has been just as exciting as some of these youngsters, but for some reason I'm just not feeling Green Bay.

Does Dillon nail a few threes in the closing seconds to win it for Indiana?
He could if the situation presents itself. But then the Bills should've drafted him. Getting three points to win the big game hasn't worked out very well for them.

Voted Bucs - Bills.
Second choice GB - Bills

Early in the year I enjoyed Tommy's foibles and struggles, but now I am rooting for him. He gave us Pat fans a great 20 years, I hope he gets #7. Bills Mafia has been tortured for many years and so if TB loses I'd like to see the Bills win. Their fanbase uniting to donate to random opponent charities is pretty cool. But ultimately I don't want KC to win given their disgusting players / coaches / fanbase (who the hell boos the unity moment??). So KC being not involved makes it less angst inducing.

TB/Bills for me. I despise the Chiefs, and this is either Tom’s 7th or Buffalo finally winning something

It’s a tie between Brady beating the Chiefs and Brady beating the Bills.

On one hand, Tom out-dueling Mahomes in the SB for his 7th ring would just be another feather in the “I am the GOAT, no one else is even close, and no one will ever be close.” cap.

Bucs over Bills would be the most delicious schadenfreude imaginable. Their fifth chance at a title and it’s Tom Fucking Brady, the bad man who they thought couldn’t hurt them anymore, that takes them down and gives them a big fat 0-5? You’d hear my villainous cackling from the other end of the planet.

Brady beating the Bills is the funniest possible remaining outcome so hopefully that.
Plus one here. It’s cool to see Buffalo putting it together like they have. I admit I was so wrong about Josh Allen. And they haven’t even played their best yet.

Rooting for Brady to get his 7th and extend his lead over the rest. Always amused by the prospect of Brady continuing to torment his AFC foes from the NFC... don't really care which AFC foe it is as long as Brady wins.

Next would be Packers beating the Chiefs - that would be a really fun game to watch with lots of fireworks. Both those QBs are - or will be - insufferable, so would rather they both lose if it was possible.

Completely uninterested in Packers-Bills except as a blowout potential where the halftime commercials become the focus.

The Bills are the most likeable team left by a country mile. I want Bills vs Packers with a combined 5 tds between Diggs and Adams. I will root for Brady over the Chiefs, but imo that's pretty much a nightmare matchup.
