The 43-year-old Brady is facing his first final with a team other than the New England Patriots, for whom he had previously played for 20 years and won six NFL titles. “This is a big game that is coming. But let’s enjoy it a little, ”said Brady. “It was a long process for the whole team.” Tampa Bay had to win three away games as a wildcard team to make it to the final at home. Green Bay, number one in the NFC, has been waiting for the fifth Super Bowl title since 2011.
Old star Brady had given the “Bucs” an early lead with a touchdown pass to Mike Evans in sub-zero temperatures at Lambeau Field and again expanded it to 21:10 shortly before the break. In the meantime, after Brady’s third touchdown pass, the guests moved away to 28:10.
Packers don’t make enough of three Brady interceptions
The attempt to shorten after a touchdown with two extra points failed. Brady threw three interceptions in the second half, but the hosts could not capitalize on them.
At 23:31 and around two minutes before the end, Packers head coach Matt LaFleur decided on a field goal instead of trusting Rodgers for a touchdown pass on a fourth attempt and eight yards from the end zone. “
The way our defense played, I felt it was the right decision,” said LaFleur. “It didn’t work.” Rodgers, who lost four of his five NFC finals, had some understanding, but also emphasized: ” It wasn’t my decision. ”After the game, the 37-year-old described the team’s future as“ uncertain ”.
Young star Mahomes leads Chiefs to victory
The 25-year-old threw three touchdown passes, two of them to tight end Travis Kelce.
The job is not done yet,” said the most valuable player (MVP) of the 2018 season and last year’s Super Bowl. “We’re going to Tampa to get the trophy back,” said Mahomes, who suffered a concussion and a toe injury in the quarterfinals a week ago. But that didn’t affect him.
For the Bills, who with quarterback Josh Allen and wide receiver Stefon Diggs had established themselves as dangerous underdogs over the course of the season, the Chiefs away were a size too big in the end. While Buffalo has to wait for his first NFL title, record player Brady is already reaching for his seventh – and for the first time in his team’s stadium.
