Tom Brady was named Super Bowl MVP for his performance in Super Bowl LV.
The former Patriots quarterback finished 21-for-29 for 201 yards and three touchdowns on the way to his seventh Super Bowl win, and first with the Buccaneers, beating the Chiefs 31-9 in Tampa.
It’s the fifth time Brady has won the Super Bowl MVP award.
He was in control from beginning to end, going 21 of 29 for 201 yards three touchdowns — all to some old buddies from New England — two to Rob Gronkowski and another to Antonio Brown.
After not throwing a TD pass in the first quarter of his previous nine Super Bowls, Brady eliminated that glitch on his resume with an 8-yard toss to Gronkowski — who came out of retirement for a moment like this — with 37 seconds left.
By going 16 of 20 in the first half, he also added a record to his mile-long list as the first player in Super Bowl history to complete 80% of his passes and throw for three touchdowns in any half.
This is all old hat to a 43-year-old quarterback with so many championship rings — now, seven of them.
