Tom Brady and the Buccaneers Win Super Bowl LV
On February 7, 2021, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won their second Super Bowl in franchise history by a score of 31 to 9 beating the Kansas City Chiefs, a team who was competing for their second Super Bowl win in a row. But perhaps the craziest story to come out of this game is their quarterback, 43-year-old Tom Brady.
Why? Well, because this was his 10th Super Bowl appearance and his 7th Super Bowl victory.
It’s an unprecedented feat. Something that has never been done before by a single player, let alone an NFL franchise. And still, despite all the wins, all the Lombardi trophies, the most Super Bowl MVP trophies, Brady is coming back for more. Or so he said in his post-game interview.
But as is with any team sport, it wasn’t just Brady’s play on the field that secured Tampa Bay’s win. It was very much a team effort.
By the end of the 2020 NFL season, it was obvious that the Buccaneers had the most complete team in the NFL. Afterall, they did defeat Drew Brees, Aaron Rogers, and Patrick Mahomes, all future Hall of Famers, to get to where they are now.
And Super Bowl LV just so happened to be the best the Buccaneers have played this year. From Rob Gronkowski becoming Brady’s target for two touchdowns to the defense pulling off two interceptions and holding one of the best offenses in the league to just nine points, the Bucs were firing on all cylinders Sunday night.
Now, the argument that is, who is the best quarterback to ever play the game? And the question that is, is Tom Brady only a system quarterback, seems to have been answered. Just ask Twitter:
Congratulations to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers!
