Super Bowl LV promises offensive explosion that could threaten single-game passing yards record

Gutfeld: Super Bowl LV preview

Gutfeld previews the big game between the Chiefs and Buccaneers

Tom Brady will be looking for his seventh Super Bowl victory come Feb. 7 when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV.

The Brady-Patrick Mahomes matchup is going to be talked about in the days leading up to the game and with both quarterbacks still showcasing their big arms you would have to think that the single Super Bowl passing yards record might be in jeopardy.

Brady is on this list twice as is Kurt Warner.

Mahomes had 286 passing yards in last year’s game and could break through to the 350-plus mark if everything goes right. He had 468 passing yards against the Buccaneers in Week 12.

Here’s the top five list for most passing yards in a single Super Bowl game.
