Super Bowl LV Recap

Payson Davenport

The 2020 NFL season has finished and there is no way to cap off a great season than to watch a great showdown between Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs who look to win back-to-back Lombardi trophies and Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who look to win their second franchise Super Bowl and Tom Brady looks to win his seventh ring which would mean that he has more rings than any other franchise in the NFL.

The game was played at Raymond James Stadium which just so happens to be the home stadium for the Buccaneers. These two teams played a few weeks back in week 12 of the regular seasons. Patrick Mahomes and wide receiver Tyreek Hill had a field day as Mahomes threw for 462 yards and 3 touchdown passes which were all caught by Tyreek Hill as he has 13 receptions for 269 yards. At one point the Chiefs were up 17-0 but the Bucs responded and almost came back but the Chiefs were able to hold onto the lead as they won 27-24.

But this meeting was different. Brady and the Bucs had nothing but revenge on their mind coming into this game and what better way to get revenge than to get revenge at your home stadium at Super Bowl LV. Tom Brady threw for 201 yards and 3 touchdown passes all while having a completion percentage of 72% and two of those touchdown passes were caught by Tom’s old partner in crime, Rob Gronkowski. But the Bucs offense wasn’t the only impressive performance, the Bucs defense was the most impressive thing to watch in the Super Bowl (besides the halftime show performed by The Weeknd) as they shut down the Chiefs offense by allowing 0 touchdowns and picking off Mahomes twice, not to mention the 29 total quarterback pressures which is the most quarterback pressures ever in a Super Bowl game. The Buccaneers went on to win the game 31-9 and Tom Brady lifted up his 7th Lombardi trophy and his 5th Super Bowl MVP.
