A different uniform, the same result.

Ageless wonder Tom Brady threw three touchdowns Sunday night to lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a 31-9 win over the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV. He also was named the game’s MVP for a fifth time. 

The performance secured the 43-year-old Brady his record seventh Super Bowl championship and his first after ending a two-decade run with the New England Patriots. It also added to a resume many consider the greatest of all time in the NFL.

Brady’s counterpart, the young and talented Patrick Mahomes, struggled while appearing in his second straight championship game.

It was the Buccaneers’ second Super Bowl win, and first since 2003. The win also made Tampa Bay coach Bruce Arian the oldest to win a title at the age of 68.
