The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9 on Sunday Night in Superbowl 55 after a stellar performance on both sides of the ball.
I’d like to start off by creditingTodd Bowles and the defence who played lights out. The Bucs defence kept the number one offence out of the endzone for the entirety on the match. The gameplan for Todd Bowles was simple: Pressure Mahomes with a 4-man rush, have two safeties sit deep in case Mahomes throws a deep ball and lastly but most importantly, keep Hill and Kelce in double coverage.
Tom Brady, 43, was in his element early in the game; He threw 2 touchdowns to Rob Gronkowski, 1 touchdown to Antonio Brown and Leonard Fournette rushed into the endzone for the final touchdown of the game. One crazy caveat about those on the score sheet is that they were all brought in this year as Free Agents thanks to Agent Tom and his ability to attract quality star players.
It was an absolute masterclass from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday night, and despite all the nonbelievers and naysayers, Brady proved them all wrong once again. Brady went on to receive his 5th Superbowl MVP and has now won a record 7th Superbowl title surpassing any organization in the NFL for the most titles ever. The Patriots and the Steelers are currently in second place with 6 titles each.
Tom ended his victory speech on Sunday saying “we coming back, you already know that” so safe to say the league has been put on notice. If Tom and company achieved this feat in his first year with the team and in an entirely new conference, you can just imagine what he would do in his second year.
The Bucs have loads of notable free agents this offseason, but many players have already come out saying that they’d; either take less money in order to sign key free agents, or they’d be coming back in the hope to run it back in 2021/22.
Brady continues to surpass all logic as he gets older, and it’s easy to see why he is the greatest football player of all time.
