The former New York Giants linebacker told FOX Business on Tuesday that the Super Bowl is going to be a "great game," but he thinks this is the year for  Chiefs' quarterback Patrick Mahomes', who is expected to top Tom Brady as the NFL's player sales leader.

Taylor has a reason for that thought, too. Come-from-behind wins are what the Chiefs have excelled in this season. Most recently, in the AFC championship playoff game that solidified their trip to the Super Bowl, the Chiefs were down 17-7 in the second quarter against the Tennessee Titans. But then, Kansas City scored four straight touchdowns, sealing their path to the NFL championship.

Mahomes finished with 294 yards through the air, not to mention accumulating 53 yards on his eight carries, including a mind-blowing touchdown scramble right before halftime.

Vegas agrees with "LT," as the Chiefs are currently the favorite to win the Super Bowl on Feb. 2 in Miami, airing on Fox.
