Next stop? Super Bowl LV!
The Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers just wrapped up another Super-Bowl-bound victory for Tom Brady. The Lambeau Field NFC Championship game is now in the history books at 31-26. And Tom Brady is ready for that 10th chance at glory.
With this victory in hand, Brady & the Bucs will now make NFL history. And that’s regardless of if they win Super Bowl LV or not. Now, they’ll be the first team to play the Super Bowl in their home stadium. That’s ever – in the many years of the National Football League. As such, Tom Brady & Bucs fans can look forward to watching Super Bowl LV at their very own Raymond James Stadium. How ’bout that?
Of course, Tom Brady isn’t solely liable for praise. The Bucs played a hell of a game, with Leonard Fournette, in particular, going full “Playoff Lenny” with “a spin move and broken tackle that put Tampa back on top!”
But Brady is hyped, none the less. As he should be. This will be his 10th Super Bowl appearance, after all. And FOX Sports is here for it.
“Tom Brady is hyped to be on the first team to ever play a Super Bowl in their home stadium,” tweets out FOX Sports. What an understatement:
Tom Brady’s Super Bowl History
As fans know, Tom Brady has been in the Super Bowl nine times. This is the most of any player in NFL history by a large margin. Behind him is legendary quarterback John Elway, who made it five times with the Denver Broncos.
Brady has been a part of Super Bowl history now for nearly two full decades. He won his first of the prestigious game at 24 in 2002, when he led the Patriots to their fist-ever Super Bowl victory. Within, they rocked the sports world when the heavily-favored St. Louis Rams lost out 20-17. He was only a backup to Drew Bledsoe at the time, too, remember.
He would go on to play eight more Super Bowls with the Patriots – and win six total.
These include Super Bowl XXXVI, XXXVIII, XXXIX, XLIX, LI, and LIII. Moreover, Brady would take home four Super Bowl MVP awards for XXXVI, XXXVIII, XLIX, and LI.
His wins so far are bookended by the Rams, as well. Most recently, Brady & the Patriots defeated the LA incarnation of the Rams in their 2019 effort – the lowest scoring game in SB history at 13-3.
Now 43, Tom Brady is not slowing down any time soon. Having moved on to the Bucs after leading the Patriots to all of their World Championships in history, it remains to be seen if he’ll take his new team the distance, too.
