NBC has a dream matchup for Kansas sportsbooks come Sunday night, as Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid travel to Tampa to take on Tom Brady and the Buccaneers in a rematch of Super Bowl LV. 

It's a marquee matchup between arguably the NFL's two most popular quarterbacks, both of whom are more than comfortable on the primetime stage. 

But the tale of their respective franchises on Sunday night could not be more different. Long before Brady and Mahomes became must-watch television, the Chiefs and Bucs were far apart when it came to Sunday night performances. 

BetKansas.com utilized the official NFL.com record book to find the historical performance of the Chiefs & Buccaneers ahead of their Sunday Night Football appearance. The statistics going back to the 1978 season and represent each of their SNF appearances since then.

Sunday Night Kind To The Chiefs

The Chiefs have won 57.6% of their games (19-14) when playing on Sunday Night Football, while the Buccaneers have only won 33.3% (7-14) of their SNF appearances, history that Kansas sports betting apps will keep in mind.

Those marks see the Chiefs ranked eighth all-time in Sunday Night Football winning percentage, while the Bucs are 30th.

Strangely enough, Brady has not been as big a boon for Tampa Bay on Sunday night as one might think. 

The seven-time Super Bowl champ is just 3-2 on "SNF" with the Bucs, though that does include his win over Bill Belichick and the Patriots in Week 4 last season.

Both of Brady's losses with the Bucs have come against the New Orleans Saints. 

Mahomes on the other hand has largely improved the Chiefs' mark on Sunday night, albeit with a much larger sample size than Brady. The 27-year-old is 7-4 on Sunday night so far in his career, and he'll look to improve that mark this weekend.

Chiefs Slightly Favored Against Brady

The Chiefs enter Sunday night's contest as slight favorites on BetMGM Kansas at -2, with an over/under of 45 points. As of Tuesday afternoon, Hurricane Ian, which is approaching Florida, had not changed plans for the Sunday night game.
