Your Super Bowl Champions: Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Both teams got off to a slow start, with only a total of 10 points scored in the first quarter. Kicker Harrison Butker was able to give the Chiefs their first and only lead of the game from 49 yards away. In response, Tampa Bay marched down with an 8-yard score from tight end Rob Gronkowski, and with that, the Buccaneers didn’t take their foot off the gas.

Outscoring the Chiefs 14-3 in the second quarter, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers really pulled away from the defending Super Bowl Champions. Kicking off with ANOTHER Rob Gronkowski touchdown. Brady and Gronk, a rekindled connection that truly made the difference early in the game. The next score from the Bucs offense came from former superstar, Antonio Brown. A one yard score, on top of a fantastic showing from an elite defense all half, taking a 21-6 lead into halftime.

Although the Chiefs started off the 3rd quarter with another field goal, more of the same came from both sides in the second half. Buccaneers domination and a stagnant Chiefs team. The first rushing touchdown of the game came mid way through the quarter coming from Buccaneers running back, Leonard Fournette. A 27-yard rush from the former LSU man. Tampa Bay was also able to get 3 more points on the board with a 52-yard kick from Ryan Succop, extending their lead to 31-9.

In the fourth, defense prevailed, with 0 points being scored from both teams. While the Chiefs attempted to get a comeback going, Tampa Bay continued to contain Patrick Mahomes and their usually elite offense. An exceptional performance from Devin White and Shaq Barrett, both leading the Bucs defense to a W over Kansas City.

Once again, Tom Brady is your Super Bowl champion, Super Bowl MVP, and is undoubtedly, the greatest of all time. Congratulations to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, defeating the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9 for their second Super Bowl in franchise history.
