As Super Bowl LV is set, it’s time for the bragging to begin. Tampa Bay’s Scotty Miller says he can beat Kansas City’s Tyreek Hill in a race.
Both players are standout wide receivers who play important roles for Tampa Bay quarterback Tom Brady and Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes, respectively. When it comes to speed, though, Miller clearly states he’s going to bet on himself against Hill.
“I’m taking me every day of the week,” Miller said during an interview on “The Dan Patrick Show” on Wednesday. “I’ll take me over anybody.”
Scotty Miller Shows Respect For Speed Of Chiefs’ Hill
Now Miller understands and has mad respect for speed, especially that of Hill.
“Tyreek is unbelievable, super quick, unbelievable talent,” Miller said. “But, if we’re talking about a race, I’ve got all of the confidence in myself going up against anybody.”
Well, let’s look at some numbers. Hill, so far this season, has 87 catches for 1,276 yards and 15 touchdowns. Miller has 33 receptions for 501 yards and three touchdowns.
Miller still believes he’s quicker than Hill. So, will a competition take place? Hill said recently that he’s retired from match race-style competitions where it’s him against another player.
Time will tell.
Chiefs Look To Repeat As Super Bowl Champions
With the Super Bowl a bit away, Kansas City will look to become a repeat champion. Last season, they beat the San Francisco 49ers to secure the title. It was their second Super Bowl championship after the Hank Stram-Len Dawson-led Chiefs won Super Bowl IV.
The Chiefs will look to become the first team since the Brady-led New England Patriots to win back-to-back Super Bowl titles.
How did both teams reach Super Bowl LV? Well, Tampa Bay managed to get past the Green Bay Packers 31-26 in the NFC Championship Game. The Buccaneers had to travel and play in cold Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wis., in order to earn the right to a second Super Bowl berth in team history.
Now Kansas City beat Buffalo 38-24 to capture the AFC Championship Game. This sets up a rematch between Brady and Mahomes, who squared off in the AFC Championship Game in 2018 when Brady was still with New England.
This time, Brady represents the NFC while Mahomes represents the AFC. My, how times change. Let the fun and games begin.
