Super Bowl 55 was looking to be a intriguing matchup between Kansas City and Tampa Bay. Although the game was more like a home game for the Bucs, most people thought that this game was really going to be competitive. The Bucs dominated the Chiefs all game. Although in the first quarter, the score was 7-3 in favor of Tampa. After that the Tampa defensive shut down the Chiefs high powered offense.
Kansas City was missing their two-pro bowl starting tackles on their offensive line and the Bucs took advantage of that with blitzing Patrick Mahomes on just about every down. The running game was none existent as well as getting the ball down the field, while it was the complete opposite for Tampa. Tom Brady played game manager going 21-29 and three touchdowns, two of them going to his former teammate in New England, Rob Gronkowski. Running back Leonard Fournette made the run game valid with 16 carries for 89 yards. Kansas City’s defense was unable to stop anything and was basically on the field for the whole game due to their offense being unproductive throughout the whole game.
Although two other field goals were made during the game, the Chiefs could not find the end zone. This marks the second Super Bowl win for Tampa Bay in franchise history after winning their first one again the then Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl 37, 48-21. This also marks the 7th Super Bowl win for quarterback Tom Brady, while also getting awarded his fourth Most Valuable Player (MVP) award. At the age of 43, Brady said that he wants to play more ball and with how well he played in Super Bowl 55, the sky is the limit for number 12.
