Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill might feel the need for a foot race at halftime of Sunday’s Super Bowl against Tampa Bay.
He’s got his eye on Buccaneers wide receiver Scotty Miller, who said he could probably beat anybody in a match-race competition.
Obviously, Hill could consider that chatter as “bulletin-board” material heading into Sunday’s matchup at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla.
If Hill had his way, then that Super Bowl halftime show would really get a boost as Hill and Miller lineup after playing the first half and give it a go.
Tyreek Hill made the suggestion at the first media appearance for the Chiefs for Super Bowl LV.
Scotty Miller Would Bet On Himself Against Tyreek Hill
Now all of this chatter actually started during the first week of a two-week gap between the end of the AFC and NFC championship games and the Super Bowl.
Scotty Miller happened to be a guest on “The Dan Patrick Show” last week and made a rather bold claim about his own speed. He’s going to place bets on himself against anyone, even Tyreek Hill.
“I’m taking me every day of the week,” Miller said. “I’ll take me over anybody.”
But Miller also knows that Hill is one of the fastest receivers in the National Football League. In other words, speed respects speed.
“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.”
If a race does happen between Tyreek Hill and Scotty Miller, then may the best man win.
Tampa Bay Wearing Home White Jerseys Against Chiefs
In other Super Bowl-related news, Tampa Bay and Kansas City have white and red colors as their primary color mixtures on their uniforms.
But who gets to wear the white jerseys in Super Bowl LV? That honor reportedly will go to the Buccaneers. ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter had the lowdown on the jersey news last week.
“Bucs will be wearing their white jerseys and pewter pants for Super Bowl LV, while the Chiefs will be wearing their red jerseys,” Schefter wrote on Thursday.
It might be confusing if fans watching at home see a few fans in the stands wearing red jerseys. Who are they for, Tampa Bay or Kansas City? That might be something to ponder. On the field, though, you will be able to tell who plays for the Buccaneers and who plays for the Chiefs.
