Tom Brady proves he’s the GOAT as Tampa Bay win Super Bowl LV

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady was named the Most Valuable Player of the Super Bowl for a record-extending fifth time after leading his team to a 31-9 victory over the top-seeded Kansas City Chiefs.

43-year-old Brady, who previously earned MVP honours with New England Patriots, completed 21 of his 29 passes for 201 yards and three touchdowns in the win and joined Peyton Manning as the only starting quarterbacks to win Super Bowls with multiple teams.

Making his 10th Super Bowl appearance, Brady claimed his seventh ring on Sunday, wasting no time putting the Bucs in position for their second title and first since the 2002 season by firing for three first-half touchdowns and a 21-6 halftime lead.

The early onslaught included a final-minute drive capped with a one-yard strike to Antonio Brown with six seconds left. Former Pats teammate Rob Gronkowski grabbed two touchdowns, padding the postseason record for scoring connections from Brady to 14. Gronkowski had six grabs for 67 yards.

A 27-yard TD run in the third quarter by Leonard Fournette, who recorded 89 yards on 16 touches, made it 28-9. That TD helped ice the outcome as the Bucs constantly pressured the Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes, who suffered his worst NFL defeat.

Defending champions Kansas City settled for three field goals by Harrison Butker.
