Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Stadium in the NFC championship game, making the Buccaneers the first team in NFL history to compete in a home-stadium Super Bowl.
A match-up that was focused on a Tom Brady/Aaron Rodgers, but became more about the Tampa Bay defense.
The Buccaneer defense managed to cause chaos all day in the backfield for Rodgers. With 5 sacks, relentless pressure and an INT, Rodgers found the Packers down by 18 points early in the third quarter.
An 18 point deficit that Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers could not find their way out of.
Brady finished 20 of 36 for 280 yards with 3 TDs and 3 INTs, to return to his 10th Super Bowl in 20 seasons.
I guess its safe to no longer say its the system, the weal AFC East or any other reason many have thrown out there about Brady’s previous nine trips.
A new team, new division and new conference, COVID-19 plagued season and no preseason to work on chemistry. Yet…here we are ONCE AGAIN…Tom Brady in the Super Bowl.
Chris Godwin had 5 receptions for 110 yards. Could have been more, more Godwin had the dropsies.
Aaron Rodgers in a losing effort still managed to put up MVPish numbers. He went 33 of 48 for 346 yards with 3 TDs and an INT.
