That’s exactly what happened as Brady, TE Rob Gronkowski, and WR Antonio Brown along with a spirited Bucs defense sealed a comfortable 9-31 win against the Chiefs at the Raymond James Stadium on February 7th, 2020.

Coincidentally, all three players played for the Bill Belichick-led New England Patriots at some point in their respective careers.

Apart from Brady, Gronkowski and AB signed 1-year deals with the Buccaneers in 2020. They are expected to return next season.

But one can’t help but wonder how an underperforming team like Tampa Bay won the Super Bowl in a span of 14 months. How deep was the impact made by 6-time Super Bowl champ, Tom Brady? HC Bruce Arians spills all.
