Many are saying that the outcome of Super Bowl LV was unexpected. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers took home the win with the final score of 31-9. While this is the Buccaneers second Super Bowl win, this is Tom Brady’s seventh win. This is two more than any player in NFL history.
The 43-year-old quarterback has recently joined the Buccaneers after having an impressive record with the New England Patriots. Brady completed 21 of 29 passes for 201 yards and three touchdowns. In this game, he and Rob Gronkowski were once again a dynamic duo, as they now have 14 postseason scoring connections. Wide receiver Antonio Brown also received passes from Brady, helping to secure the trophy.
The Kansas City Chiefs’ offensive cost them their chance at winning Super Bowl LV. Within the first half of the game, the team racked up 95 penalty years and Eric Fisher and Mitchel Schwartz were out of the game due to injuries. While Chiefs fans are disappointed, many are hopeful that the team will make a comeback next season.
Even though this is Tom Brady’s seventh win and fifth time being crowned the Super Bowl MVP, he announced at the end of the game that he is not done yet.
