For the first time in NFL history, a team played the Super Bowl in its home stadium, and in Tampa on Sunday evening, the home team rolled. Tom Brady and the Buccaneers defeated Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs, 31-9, in Super Bowl LV, as Brady claimed the seventh championship of his career.

Brady, 43, in his first season outside New England in his two-decade career, helped solidify his legacy as perhaps the greatest quarterback of all time. He threw three touchdown passes and was awarded the game’s MVP award — the fifth of his career.
