How Tom Brady led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to Super Bowl LV Championship
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense started Super Bowl LV with seven plays and two punts on back-to-back drives. The offense had gotten a big boost from the Buccaneers defense who held the Chiefs to just three points in their first two drives. Tom Brady conducted a 8 play 75 yard drive that ended in a touchdown pass to Rob Gronkowski.
This was the first touchdown pass Tom Brady had thrown in the first quarter of a Super Bowl. What made his first touchdown even better is that it was to long time friend Rob Gronkowski. Not to mention that the touchdown pass helped the duo pass Joe Montana and Jerry Rice.
Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski passed Montana and Rice for the most touchdowns by a quarterback and wide receiver duo in playoff history. The two friends have found the end zone together 13 times. In the second quarter they would push that number to 14.
When Tom Brady landed in Tampa Bay he recruited three NFL players to come join him. Ironically those three NFL players had huge games in Super Bowl LV. Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Brown, and Leonard Fournette were all recruited by the seven time champion.
Gronkowski caught two touchdowns, Fournette had a rushing touchdown and 89 yards rushing, and Antonio Brown also caught a touchdown pass. Tom Brady passed for 201 yards and three touchdowns and zero interceptions. He took home his seventh Super Bowl Championship and his fifth Super Bowl MVP.
