TAMPA, Fla. – Tom Brady took one final snap, went down on his knee, popped up and hugged his Tampa Bay Buccaneers teammates.

With that big, familiar smile.

They were champions and Brady put together another vintage performance on football's biggest stage — doing everything his unquestioned greatness has forced the world to expect whenever he takes the field.

In whatever uniform or city he’s in.

Brady was masterful. He was magnificent. He was the Super Bowl MVP.

Again. For the fifth time. At 43 years old.

Brady delivered Tampa Bay its second Lombardi Trophy, and first since 2003, with a 31-9 victory over Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night.

“Being down here and experiencing it this with this group of guys, every year is amazing, and this team is world champions forever,” Brady said. "You can’t take that away from us, so thank you guys, thank you all.”
