“Everything lined up perfectly, from ownership, to general manager, who is a great friend, to all of my assistants being available,” Arians recalled on Monday. “Frankly, I probably wouldn’t have taken the job had some of those assistants not been available.”
Arians and his team have accomplished great things this season, however, they still have one more goal. Winning the Super Bowl. And they have the chance to do just that in their home stadium for the first time in Super Bowl history.

Look for the Bucs to do some things you haven’t seen this season on Sunday. They will have to if they want a chance at dethroning the Chiefs.
