The Tampa Bay Buccaneers led by Tom Brady defeated the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV on Sunday with a 31-9 victory. Brady, the 43 year old quarterback, walks away with his seventh championship in his 10th Super Bowl appearance, ranking higher than both the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers for the most Super Bowl wins in NFL history.
Brady, the oldest player to ever play in the Super Bowl earns himself another Super Bowl MVP, the 5th of his career and more than any other player. Brady, who left the New England Patriots at the end of last season, proves he is still one of the best quarterbacks in the league by completing 21 of 29 passes for 201 yards. Brady threw three touchdown passes with two going to tight end Rob Gronkowski and one to wide receiver Antonio Brown. Buccaneers running back Leonard Founette also scored a touchdown.
The Buccaneers won their first Super Bowl since 2003 and they became the first team to play and win a Super Bowl in their home stadium. After 20 seasons with the New England Patriots, Brady left and signed a 2 year $50 million contract with Tampa Bay last year in March.
When asked by Jim Nantz during the Super Bowl MVP ceremony if there was more to come, Brady simply replied “Yeah, we’re coming back. We’re coming back.”
