Super Bowl LV: Buccaneers defeat Chiefs 31-9

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were victorious on Sunday night, winning Super Bowl LV by defeating the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9.

Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes — two to Rob Gronkowski and another to Antonio Brown — as he led his team to victory. This was Brady's 10th Super Bowl appearance and seventh win, his first away from the New England Patriots. He was also named MVP. Tampa Bay's first — and before Sunday night, only — Super Bowl win came in 2002.

This was a much anticipated game, as fans wanted to see Brady go against Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs won last year's Super Bowl, but they had a disappointing showing this time around, with Mahomes held scoreless for only the second time in his career. He finished 26 of 49 for 270 yards passing and 33 yards rushing.
