The Buccaneers became Super Bowl champions for the second time in franchise history. Tom Brady is a Super Bowl Winner for the seventh time in his career.
The 43-year old Brady has joined a losing Tampa squad this season after winning six titles in a two-degree stretch in New Britain and promptly brought Buc’s glory. Not that he had to re-start much padding, but he was further cemented as the biggest quarterback of all, with 21-for-29 for 201 metres and three touchdowns.
On Sunday night, Brady expelled Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs to keep them out of championships. He did this by completing 21 of 29 interception passes for 201 yards and 3 downgrades. Ronald Jones II (12 carries, 61 yards) and Leonard Fournette (16 carries, 89 yards, 1 score) also helped him running in Bucs’ route 31-9.
However, if whole groups could be given the Super Bowl MVP, the award would surely take place in the defence of Todd Bowles’ Buccaneers: the party limited Muhame to 26-of-49, covering 270 yards. Clyde Edwards-Helaire was the top Chiefs Rusher at 64 yards and all receivers at 10 catches at 133 yards at the end of the day were handled by Travis Kelce. Seven passes were taken by Tyreek Hill for 67 yards.
The defences of the Bucs were swift and violent and assailed Mohammeds all night in the backfield. Three third-down conversions have also been possible on 13 attempts and just a fourth-down one.
