Super Bowl LIV will feature two of the NFL's brightest stars at the quarterback position, with Patrick Mahomes of the Chiefs set to face off against San Francisco's Jimmy Garoppolo.
Of course, both players enjoyed terrific seasons while leading their teams to the big game, and both possess in spades the kind of excellence and star power that every team wants from its quarterback.
But many of the similarities end there. From their contrasting styles of play to their very different backgrounds, Mahomes vs. Garoppolo, on paper, could be a QB duel that ranks among the best in Super Bowl history.
