Tom Brady brought the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to Super Bowl LV for the team’s second win and Brady’s seventh.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the Super Bowl in a beat down against the Kansas City Chiefs, winning 31-9 in a home field victory on Sunday, February 7, 2021.

The game started slowly, with the Chiefs scoring three in the first quarter. The Buccaneers scored seven, with a Tom Brady to Rob Gronkowski connection for a touchdown. The Buccaneers picked up the pace in the second quarter with two more touchdown passes from Brady.  Gronkowski and Antonio Brown were on the receiving end.  The Chiefs added three more points.

Halftime came with Tampa Bay leading 21 to 6.  The Weeknd performed in the Pepsi Super Bowl LV Halftime Show, featuring popular songs “Starboy,” “The Hills,” “Can’t Feel My Face,” and “Blinding Lights.”

After the show, the game continued.  Brady and the Buccaneers continued to add on points, with Leonard Fournette scoring a rushing touchdown (seven points) and Ryan Succop kicking a field goal (three points), both in the third.  All the Chiefs could answer with was another field goal (three points).

The fourth quarter was scoreless and the game ended 31-9 in Tampa Bay’s favor.  

The city of Tampa and many of the 7,500 health care workers in the stands were ecstatic.  The team celebrated their victory with a parade on boats on the Hillsborough River.

Brady was named the MVP of the game.  With seven Super Bowl wins, many now consider Brady the undisputed greatest football player of all time.
