Buccaneers trounce Chiefs 31-9 to win Super Bowl LV
February 8, 2021
Tom Brady, the greatest of all time, beat Patrick Mahomes, the greatest of this-time, handily and with plenty of help from one of the grandest defensive performances in Super Bowl history.
Brady, the Buccaneers' 43-year-old quarterback, found his rhythm after two early punts while Mahomes, the 25-year-old Chiefs quarterback, ran for his life from start to finish behind a decimated offensive line missing both starting tackles and forced to play former Vikings castoff guard Mike Remmers at left tackle.
The result was a woefully one-sided 31-9 win by Tampa Bay over the defending champions in Super Bowl LV. It was Brady's seventh Super Bowl win in his debut season with Tampa Bay, the first team to play in a Super Bowl in its home stadium.
