Rob Gronkowski and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the Super Bowl LV world champions after defeating the Kansas City Chiefs.
The All-Pro tight end, in his first season with the Tampa Bay Bucs, made a big impact on the game with two scores. He and longtime teammate and friend Tom Brady found the endzone twice in the decisive victory over the Chiefs. Brady, appearing in his tenth Super Bowl, also had a fantastic game, completing over 70 percent of his passes. In addition to his two scoring tosses to “Gronk,” as he is known around the league, he threw three total touchdowns. For his efforts, Brady was named the game’s most valuable player after winning his record seventh Lombardi Trophy.
Tampa Bay’s defense also did its part to win the big game, limiting the explosive Chiefs’ offense to just nine points. Bucs defenders intercepted quarterback Patrick Mahomes twice and kept the team from reaching the endzone even once.
Gronkowski is well known for his big personality and his love of the party hard lifestyle. Once the game was over, he was one of the first on the field to join in on the ensuing celebration. He was able to snap a few celebration photos for his fans and social media follower to enjoy and get a taste of the action.

He posted a photo on his Instagram page on Monday showing he and the team getting their celebration on.
“SBLV Champs,” Gronk writes in the caption. “Tampa Bay Bucs, we did it!” The photo show Gronkowski soaking in the glory, shooting a look of pure joy at the camera.
Along with his two scores, the big tight end added six catches for 67 yards. His longest play of the game went for 25 yards.
Gronkowski has long been a favorite target of quarterback of Tom Brady. The two were teammates during the New England Patriots’ run of dominance.
Gronk actually retired from the NFL briefly before deciding to rejoin the league and Brady with the Bucs this season. He says he could also return to the team and play next season as well.
