The Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will do battle at Raymond James Stadium Sunday in what should be a fantastic duel. Super Bowl LV will feature great quarterbacks, high flying offenses, and impact defenders.

The storyline is one of the best we’ve seen. Can the Chiefs repeat and start their own dynasty with Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid at the helm? Or will Tom Brady, in his 10th Super Bowl start, capture his seventh ring? The Bucs have the team to do it.

While the players and teams change year to year, one thing that doesn’t is unsung heroes shining on the biggest stage and in the biggest moments. It happens in every Super Bowl. Who can forget Tracy Porter’s interception for the Saints to seal their first and only title? Kony Ealy single-handedly kept the Panthers in the game against Denver, registering three sacks and picking off Peyton Manning. Chris Matthews had a big end of half drive for the Seahawks against New England, and rookie Malcolm Butler made the play of the game for the Patriots. Corey Clement made some big plays for the Eagles to capture their first title.

This year will be no different. There will be players who save their best for the final act of the 2020 NFL season and put it all on the line for Super Bowl LV. Let’s take a look at five players who fit the bill and could determine the outcome of the Super Bowl on Sunday.
