Warren Sapp, an award-winning NFL defensive tackle, predicted that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers would win the Super Bowl two years ago. Now he's making a prediction for this year's game.
Sapp, a Pro Football Hall of Famer, appeared recently on the popular show VladTV YouTube show and made his prediction for which team will win Super Bowl LVII.
The Philadelphia Eagles will face off against the Kansas City Chiefs this year. Both teams have a record of 16-3, and current betting odds suggest the Eagles are a slight favorite.
Is Sapp right? He does not. "I got Kansas City," the Football legend said. "A Super Bowl is a monster. And then, when you put it two weeks later, it becomes a bigger monster."
Sapp claims the pressure is difficult to describe, and he only had to wait six days after the end of the season to play the game. By the way, Sapp earned his Superbowl honor in 2002 when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers triumphed over the Oakland Raiders.
"I can't imagine waiting for two weeks," said the narrator. However, he believes that the fact that Kansas City has been in three of the previous four Super Bowls will "pay dividends."
Sapp, a former defensive player, was asked why he didn't like the Phillies' stacked defense over Kansas City.
"They both play D," he said. "They both have the most sackinest defenses."

This year's Super Bowl is special for another reason: it's the first Super Bowl to feature two black starting quarterbacks, Patrick Mahomes for Kansas City and Jalen Hurts of the Eagles.
Whatever happens, it will be a fight. On Fox, Super Bowl LVII airs this Sunday at 6:30 pm EST.
