The Kansas City Chiefs had the best record in the NFL this season, and they were favored to win back-to-back Super Bowls on Sunday night.

But standing in their way was the greatest Super Bowl winner of them all.

Quarterback Tom Brady threw three touchdowns to lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a 31-9 victory over the Chiefs in Super Bowl LV. It is the seventh Super Bowl title for the 43-year-old Brady, extending his own record. No other player in league history has even been to seven Super Bowls.

This was Brady's first season with the Buccaneers. He spent his first 20 seasons with the New England Patriots.

Sunday night's game was played at Tampa's Raymond James Stadium. It was the first time in Super Bowl history that one of the teams had played in its home stadium.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, there were only around 25,000 fans allowed to attend the game — including 7,500 vaccinated health-care workers who were given free tickets by the NFL.
