The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won their second Super Bowl on Sunday. The Buccaneers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs, 31-9, in Super Bowl LV at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.

The Buccaneers are the first NFL team to win a Super Bowl in their home stadium. Tampa Bay also won the Super Bowl during the 2002 season when they defeated the Oakland Raiders at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, California.

With the win, the Buccaneers won their final eight games of the season. They are the first Wild Card team to win the Super Bowl since 2010 when the Green Bay Packers defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Tom Brady won his seventh Super Bowl in his career. He also picked up his fifth Super Bowl MVP.

This is Brady’s first Super Bowl win without Bill Belichick as their head coach. In the off-season, Brady signed a two-year deal with the Buccaneers.

Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians is the oldest head coach to win a Super Bowl. He’s 68.

He is the second-oldest head coach to win an NFL championship if you include the time before the Super Bowl era. Tampa Bay defensive coordinator Todd Bowles deserves a lot of credit.

His defensive unit made Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes II look out of sync all game. The Buccaneers’ defensive front four came after Mahomes II all game.

The former NFL MVP was not able to set his feet and throw for much of the game due to the pressure in his face. Brady went 21 of 28 for 201 yards. He had three touchdown passes.

Leonard Fournette had 16 carries for 89 yards and a touchdown. Rob Gronkowski had six receptions for 67 yards and two touchdowns.

Gronkowski is the first receiver to catch a pass in five Super Bowls. This is his third Super Bowl ring in his career.

Mahomes II went 20 of 40 for 212 yards. He also threw an interception.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire had nine carries for 64 yards. Travis Kelce had nine receptions for 117 yards.

Like Brady, Fournette and Gronkowski joined the Buccaneers in the off-season. They combined for three touchdowns.

Antonio Brown joined the team during the season and scored a touchdown. Ryan Succop also made a field goal.

Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker made three field goals.
