NORFOLK, Va. – As the 2019 NFL regular season kicks off Thursday, the NFL begins a yearlong celebration of the league’s 100th season. The first game will feature one of the NFL’s legendary rivalries as the Chicago Bears host the Green Bay Packers in football’s oldest rivalry.
While the first game features a historic, longtime matchup, News 3 Sports Director Adam Winkler predicts the final game of the 100th season to deliver a contest unlike we’ve ever seen.
His pigskin prognostication? The Kansas City Chiefs and Dallas Cowboys will meet in Super Bowl LIV Sunday February 2nd at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.
The Chiefs and Cowboys have never faced-off in a Super Bowl. In fact, Kansas City has only reached the ultimate game twice – and not since the 1969 season.
The Cowboys have five Super Bowl titles, but have not reached one since the 1995 season. In Dallas’ eight Super Bowl appearances, it has faced five different teams – but never the Chiefs.
Should this matchup come to fruition, it will be the first time in three years (Super Bowl LI, Patriots vs. Falcons) the Super Bowl will not feature a rematch.
