Tampa Bay Buccaneers sealed their second Super Bowl win with a more than convincing display against Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Bruce Arians’ men became the first team in NFL history to lift a Lombardi Trophy on home turf. With a reported 25,000 fans present at the Raymond James Stadium for Super Bowl LV.
This was the most attended game of the 2020-21 NFL season despite COVID-19 restrictions. Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski were the two standout performers for the home team in Super Bowl LV. The 43-year old won his record-breaking 7th Championship ring and is now officially the ‘winningest’ quarterback in the league’s history.
Brady has more Super Bowls than any NFL team and is also the only starting QB to win a Super Bowl while playing in both conferences.
Honestly, Sunday’s game in Tampa was purely a one-sided affair. The 9-31 scoreline will tell you who the obvious dominant party was and deservedly so. But how did the game come about? What were the highlights? Who was the standout performer? Let’s go step by step and relive Super Bowl LV, but this time through memes shared on Twitter.
Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu had an awful game in defense. He gave away two penalties in the first half itself. On top of that, the ‘Honey Badger’ got into a nasty spat with Super Bowl LV MVP Tom Brady. Mess with fire, you get burnt but mess with Tom Brady and….well, you know how it finished.
2018 NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes started the game on a positive note. There were reports that he was playing with a serious toe injury and will undergo surgery on the same in the offseason. Well, after Sunday’s game, he might have to undergo a few more procedures in order to get back to peak fitness.
The Chiefs defense endured a horrid outing in Super Bowl LV. Never have they been dominated in such a fashion by an NFL team over the last two years. HC Andy Reid will be disappointed in what he saw tonight.
Former Pittsburgh Steelers man Antonio Brown was without a team until Week 8 of regular season. He now has his first Super Bowl ring courtesy of TB12 and the rest of the Buccaneers. Big Ben, you there?
With former players – Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, and Antonio Brown – all winning a Super Bowl together, coach Belichick must be a happy man. or maybe not?
