After Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won Super Bowl LV over the Kansas City Chiefs, the 43-year-old’s former team had a simple message.
“Congratulations to the greatest of all time,” read a tweet from the Patriots’ account. The win gave Brady his seventh Super Bowl win, surpassing his own record for most NFL championships by a single player.

Brady, who left New England in 2020 to sign in Tampa as a free agent, completed 21 of 29 passes for 201 yards and three touchdowns.
Of course, Brady wasn’t the only former Patriot to have a big night. Rob Gronkowski caught two touchdown passes in the game, and New England’s team account had a follow-up tweet for him, referencing a humorous past incident involving one of the Patriots’ Lombardi trophies.
