It would be an understatement to say that Tampa Bay Buccaneers HC Bruce Arians was a happy man on Sunday night in Florida. His players along with assistant coach, DC Todd Bowles, put up one hell of a shift to down the Chiefs in Super Bowl LV.

But it was the likes of veteran stars – Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Brown, and an experienced RB in the form of Leonard Fournette. All three players got on the scoreboard on the weekend. In doing so, they etched their names into NFL folklore forever.

The Buccaneers became the first team in NFL history to win a Super Bowl wherein all players scoring touchdowns were not on the roster a year before. They also became the first franchise in the league’s history to win a Lombardi in front of home fans.
