On Sunday, February 7 the Kansas City Chiefs faced off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Florida. Two leading NFL Quarterbacks faced off, Patrick Mahomes vs Tom Brady. Patrick Mahomes is in his 3rd year with a Championship ring from his Super Bowl victory last year. Tom Brady was coming into the SuperBowl with 6 rings looking for another one. Another key player, Rob Gronkowski came out of retirement to play this season also hoping to get another ring alongside Tom Brady. This SuperBowl due to the Covid-19 measures only allowed about 25,000 people at the stadium. Viewers of the game had to wear masks at all times and practice social distancing guidelines.
The game started out with few successful plays. A few possessions here and there but no scoring. Then, the Chiefs started to move the ball down field. Their quarterback Patrick Mahomes was trying everything in his power to win. He remained hopeful. At one point he was parallel to the ground and almost threw a touchdown pass. Another time he was getting tackled and mid tackle he almost threw another touchdown pass! Rob Gronkowski joined Jerry Rice to be the only 2 people to have 2 recieving touchdowns in the SuperBowl. The final score was 31-9 and the Buccaneers won their first Super Bowl in their hometown. Tampa Bay will be celebrating this victory and Tom Brade will receive his seventh ring.
