Super Bowl LV is set with quite the stage of legends collides between Tom Brady's Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid's Kansas City Chiefs next Sunday, Feb. 7.

And with the kind of high-profile talent on both sides of the field meeting in this year's Super Bowl, greatness has a knack for recognizing greatness, which has already come in the form of Reid's recent comments about Brady's play leading up to this colossal matchup.

He’s playing at an extremely high level. And for somebody his age, it’s unbelievable. I mean, it’s unbelievable for a 25 year old to be doing what he’s doing, let alone a 43 year old.

You have to respect a football mind as complex and successful as Reid's acknowledging the greatness in his opponent's starting quarterback with this nod to Brady. While it's hard to argue with Brady's play, as evidenced by Reid's comments, it's still quite the sign of character in bringing that up ahead of this matchup.

And this praise has certainly been earned by Brady as well. At 43 years old this season, Brady has threw for 40 touchdowns, 4,633 yards and just 12 interceptions in the regular season with 7 TDs and 860 yards in this year's postseason on the way to leading his new team to the Super Bowl.
