Tampa Bay Buccaneers Beat Kansas City Chiefs In Super Bowl LV

Tom Brady won an incredible seventh Super Bowl ring, as Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat Kansas City Chiefs 31-9 at Super Bowl LV.

The Bucs were the first team to make a home Super Bowl at the Raymond James Stadium, although only 22,000 fans were allowed in, as they came up against defending champions Kansas City.

Ahead of the match it was billed as the GOAT vs the Kid, as Brady went up against Patrick Mahomes, but it was the legend of the sport who came out on top.

The former New England Patriots star, who many questioned if he could do it without Bill Belichick before moving to Florida, threw for four touchdowns, whilst the younger man couldn't get one.

The huge win meant a seventh occasion for Brady to lift the Vince Lombardi trophy.

Kansas City brought up the first points of the match. Mahomes found Tyreek Hill but the wide receiver couldn't bring the ball down.

Instead the defending champions had to settle for the three points from the field goal, Harrison Butker hitting it from 49 yards out, with just five minutes left of the first quarter.

With just over 30 seconds left of the opening 15 minutes Tampa Bay scored the first touchdown of the match, and it actually ended an incredible record for Brady.

The legendary quarterback found fellow former New England Patriots star Rob Gronkowski, with the tight end running in from five yards to convert Brady's first touchdown in the first quarter of a Super Bowl at the 10th attempt.

The former WWE 24/7 Champion broke a record himself, becoming the first man to complete a catch in five different Super Bowls.

The Bucs defence won the ball back early in the second quarter and Brady, with the help of a penalty, got his side to within yards of a second touchdown.

Joe Haeg looked to have scored an unlikely TD but Anthony Hitchens stopped him. The Chiefs defence then made a huge stand to deny the home team.

Penalties were killing the Chiefs and with six minutes left of the second quarter Brady and Gronk took advantage of the latest infringement to make it it 13-3, and the Bucs added the extra point.

With just over a minute thalftimetime Butker kicked his second field goal of the game, after great pressure from the Bucs defence stopped Mahomes from being able to complete a pass.

As with Conference final, Brady threw another touchdown pass in the final few seconds of the half, with the 43-year-old finding Antonio Brown, with the Chiefs once again giving away too many penalties.

It left Tampa Bay 21-6 up at the break and with a huge lead, before the Weeknd entertained everyone with the halftime show.

Butker added the first points of the second half, this time with a 52 yard field goal, reducing the deficit to 12 points.

But once again Tampa Bay stretched out their lead with nearly eight minutes left of the quarter, with Brady this time finding Leonard Fournette who ran the ball into the end zone with a power run.

With time and chances running out Mahomes had to start going for it. He threw a long pass towards Hill on a third down and it looked like it would be good but the 26-year-old could only spill it for an interception.

Mahomes continued to throw inspired, hail mary-esque passes, as the Bucs defence chased him down, but nothing paid off as his teammates kept letting him down.

The final quarter was rather limp as neither side was able to add to their score, not that the Buccaneers needed to.
