The ‘quarterback’ Tom Brady was consecrated this Sunday as The best of all time by leading the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a 31-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs and proclaiming themselves Super Bowl LV champions.
Brady, 43, who played his 10th Super Bowl as a professional, the previous 9s with the New England Patriots, achieved his seventh champion title, the best record of all time in the National Football League (NFL), and his fifth Most Valuable Player (MVP) award of the game.
He also became the first player on an (NFL), MLB, NBA or NHL team to win titles for two different teams after his 40th birthday.
Single Peyton manning He also won Super Bowls with two different franchises when he played first with the Indianapolis Colts and then with the Denver Broncos.
Brady, who exhibited himself before young quarterback Patrick Mahomes, 25, of the Chiefs, finished the game with 21 completed passes of 29 for 201 yards, three touchdowns, no interceptions and was knocked down once, having great protection inside the package by the Tampa Bay defense.
While Mahomes was the great defeated by not being able to make a single touchdown pass with one intercepted and just gaining 270 yards after completing 26 shipments of 49 attempts, in addition to being knocked down three times.
Now, Brady is 3-2 in the five individual games he has had against Mahomes, who came to the game to revalidate the title of champions of the Chiefs, who were seeking the third in their history after having won Super Bowls IV ( 1970) and LIV, from last year.
The game was doomed at the end of the first half with a 21-3 run after Brady and tight end Rob Gronkowski made history by connecting with two touchdown passes, and another veteran, wide receiver Antonio Brown, made the third.
No ability to react the Chiefs offense under a Mahomes completely off-center and uninspired with his passes, The Buccaneers, led by 68-year-old head coach Bruce Arians, who won their first Super Bowl title, were always superior in every facet of the game.
Running back Leonard Fournette scored 27 yards and kicker Ryan Succop with a 52-yard field goal sentenced the victory with second-half scores.
Before, in the first room, Brady connected with Gronkowski for his thirteenth touchdown of the postseason on an 8-yard pass, beating Joe Montana and Jerry Rice for the most postseason touchdowns in NFL history.
It was also the first time in Brady’s 10 Super Bowls that he scored a touchdown in the first quarter, giving the Buccaneers a partial 7-3 lead.
On the play, Gronkowski ran around the back of the formation, while wide receiver Mike Evans also ran to throw off the Chiefs defense.
It was Gronkowski’s fourth receiving touchdown as a professional in a Super Bowl, breaking a five-way tie for second in the history of the National Football League (NFL) grand finale. Now he is only behind Rice, who has eight.
Brady and Gronkowski would replicate that magic in the second quarter. The Buccaneers lined up for a 40-yard field goal after stalling deep in Kansas City territory, but Antonio Hamilton made the automatic first attempt.
On the next play, Brady found Gronk for a 17-yard touchdown, with Gronkowski pretending to be running into the corner of the end zone before turning inside and losing safety L’Jarius Sneed, extending the Buccaneers’ lead to 14-3.
Then the Chiefs got their second field goal through kicker Harrison Butker Harrison for the 14-6 run that the Buccaneers made it to 21-6 after Brown’s score after receiving Brady’s one-yard pass and the road to the title. It was clear.
