Tom Brady does it again
At the beginning of the NFL season, who would have ever thought that quarterback Tom Brady would continue his journey with a new team and win another Super Bowl? But on Sunday night, Brady, at age 43, played his 10th Super Bowl and won his seventh Lombardi Trophy. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9 to earn a franchise second trophy. Brady earned his fifth Super Bowl MVP. He is the second starting quarterback to win a Super Bowl with two different teams (Peyton Manning was the first with Colts and Broncos). It was a slow start at the beginning of the game. Eventually, the team came together and performed at a higher level.
Brady went 21-of-29 completions, 201 passing yards, and three touchdown passes. Running Backs Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones II combined with 28 carries with 150 yards. Fournette scored a touchdown. Brady threw to six different receivers. Tight End Gronkowski caught two touchdown passes and Antonio Brown with one.
On the other side, quarterback Patrick Mahones and the Chiefs could not find any rhythm throughout the game. The Chiefs' loss snapped any possibility of winning their second straight Super Bowl.
For Brady, he announced that he would be back again. Brady has appeared in five of the last seven super bowls. Another fact to include in this history is that he has stopped opposing opponents twice from repeating (Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs). Brady and the Patriots are the last franchise to repeat (2003 and 2004). Therefore, it is a strong possibility that Brady will attempt to head back and win another Super Bowl. Who will doubt him now?
If there is anything I learned from Brady, you must take care of yourself. Age is just a number.
