No. 2: Tom Brady reminds Patrick Mahomes who’s the GOAT in Super Bowl LV
There are a number of reasons why Tom Brady’s win in Super Bowl LV over quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs could be considered the best in the former’s career.
First off, Brady shook off the notion it was his former head coach, Bill Belichick, and the Patriots that were the primary reasons behind the quarterback’s success. After all, Brady took what was a 7-9 Buccaneers squad the previous season all the way to the Super Bowl.
Then winning it, doing so against a player many consider to be the next GOAT, Mahomes, and a Chiefs offense few other teams across the league even have a chance to stop.
Well, the Bucs defense sure did its job in Super Bowl LV, holding Mahomes and Co. to a mere nine points and creating a deficit loss greater than any other Mahomes had suffered at the pro level.
So, while Tampa Bay’s defense deserves a ton of credit for what it did against Kansas City, Brady more than deserves his fair share of handling his business and then some on the field.
Brady was masterful, tossing all his short, intermediate and deep routes with the same sort of ease and efficiency he’s had over the entirety of his career. And at the tender young age of 43 years old, landing yet another game MVP award.
Three touchdowns, zero interceptions and over 200 pass yards later, Brady just made it oh-so tougher for anyone like Mahomes to ever catch him in total Super Bowl rings.
