Tom Brady surpassed his sporting idol Michael Jordan in total championships won with his victory in the Super Bowl today, prompting memes en masse.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers ran riot on their home field last night. They put up a steely defensive performance to prevent the Chiefs from scoring a single touchdown. The final score of 31-9 understates just how dominant the Bucs were. They went into the halftime break with a commanding 21-6 lead.
Tom Brady completed 21 of his 29 pass attempts, throwing for 201 yards total with a passer rating of 125.8. He completely outplayed young buck Patrick Mahomes in their second postseason faceoff. Mahomes had 2 of his passes intercepted and recorded 21 more pass incompletions.
