Tom Brady and Drew Brees, titans of the NFL, faced-off on Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Brady turned back the clock with an eye-catching display as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Saints to seal a spot in the NFC Championship game.
The visitors sealed a convincing 20-30 win in what turned out to be a closely fought encounter. Brady went 18 of 33, throwing for 199 yards and 2 passing TDs in the Divisional Playoff win.
This will be Tom Brady’s first-ever NFC Championship game in just his first year with the Bucs. Even at 43, the 6-time Super Bowl winner proved on Sunday he is still as hungry as he was to win a ring 2 decades ago.
Their next test is against the Aaron Rodgers-led Green Bay Packers, who will have the home advantage playing at the Lambeau Field. But the former New England Patriots man can help his new team create history in the coming weeks.
Last year’s Super Bowl LIV saw Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. This year’s Super Bowl LV event is scheduled to be played at the Raymond James Stadium, home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. A win next Sunday against the Packers will guarantee a spot in the final.
In doing so, the Buccaneers will become the first team in the league’s history to play at their home stadium in a Super Bowl fixture.
The Packers will be a tough team to beat. Aaron Rodgers is in a league of his own at the moment, as is WR Davante Adams. The Bucs’ defense will need to be at their very best to stop the Packers’ offense. Make sure you don’t miss out on this high-paced affair.
