The Super Bowl LV clash between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Ba Buccaneers gets closer by the day. Fans are patiently waiting to see these teams, led by their star quarterbacks, take the field in what's shaping up to be a shootout.

This year's Super Bowl referees will be tasked with officiating two dyanmic offenses, and Chiefs head coach Andy Reid offered his prediction on the refs' decision-making come Sunday.

Reid believes that the refs will be mostly hands off, which is great news for these teams. Calling every little infraction isn't anything that anyone wants to see, but appropriate calls need to be made. It's a fine line to walk.

That line seem to go haywire in the NFC Championships Game between the Buccaneers and Green Bay Packers. The refs didn't call much contact for most of the matchup, but the game was ultimately decided by a pass interference penalty that wasn't much different than previous no-calls during that contest.

With these teams projected to run rampant on Sunday, the refs will certainly have their hands full keeping up with everything going on, but Reid's prediction offers optimism that officials will let the Chiefs and Bucs battle it out for the Lombardi Trophy.
