Super Bowl 2021: Tom Brady wins seventh title as Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat Kansas City Chiefs

Tom Brady steered the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a comfortable 31-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs to extend his record for Super Bowl wins to seven.

In his first season after a glittering 20-year spell with the New England Patriots, the evergreen quarterback helped Tampa Bay become the first team to play a Super Bowl in their own stadium.

And despite facing Kansas City and their dynamic young quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who came in as favourites, Brady threw three touchdown passes to prevent the Chiefs becoming the first back-to-back NFL champions since Brady and the Patriots in the 2004 season.

At 43 years and 188 days, Brady became the oldest player to play in the biggest game in US sport, extending his record for Super Bowl appearances to 10 and joining Peyton Manning as the only quarterbacks to win Super Bowls with two different teams.

Already widely considered the greatest NFL player of all time, Brady decided to leave New England in the off-season for a new challenge and was lured to Tampa Bay, whose only previous Super Bowl win came in the 2002 season.

Is this the GOAT's greatest achievement?

Brady wins seventh Super Bowl - as it happened

He reportedly urged the Bucs to bring in former Patriots team-mates Rob Gronkowski and Antonio Brown, as well as Leonard Fournette, and the trio shared Tampa Bay's four touchdowns as they eased home in Super Bowl 55 after leading 21-6 at half-time.

While the Chiefs came into the post-season as the top seed in the AFC Conference, Tampa Bay were the NFC's fifth seed and became the first wildcard team to win a Super Bowl since the Green Bay Packers 10 years ago after a remarkable play-off run.

After losing to the Chiefs in week 12, the Bucs finished the regular season with four wins before beating three division winners - all on the road - to reach the title decider for just the second time.

Remarkably, Brady now has more Super Bowl wins than any single NFL franchise and was named the big game's Most Valuable Player for a record-extending fifth time.

"I'm so proud of all of these guys," he said. "We had a rough November but Bruce Arians (head coach) had all of the confidence in us and we came together at the right time.

"I'm not making any comparisons. Coming down here and playing with this group of guys is amazing."

Innumerable people took to social media to complain that NFL star Tom Brady winning the Super Bowl during Black History Month was “racist.”

No, this is not the Onion.

Brady led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to victory over the Kansas City Chiefs to claim a personal 7th Super Bowl win, prompting outrage due to the perception that Brady once supported President Trump and the Chiefs’ quarter-back being black.

Many Black Lives Matter supporters scolded Brady for having the temerity to win, suggesting he was “racist” for doing so.

A USA Today sports journalist also wrote an op-ed last week expressing her fury at Brady for not apologizing for his “white privilege.”

Give credit to Tom Brady for yet another masterful performance once more. Enjoyed every minute of the game even though I am not a fan of the sport.

He completely destroyed the opposition with great passes but more importantly he out thought them in all respects of the game.

Just goes to show what experience can be useful and has to be earned through hard work and dedication.

I hear that he wants to play an additional two seasons, just hope that he does not stay to long and in so doing destroy his legacy as the greatest player of all time.

Well done TOM.

I don't think it's possible...and some said he was over the wall 3 years ago already.
