Meanwhile, Tom Brady cemented his status as the greatest of all time Sunday night.
Brady threw for 201 yards passing and three touchdowns, including two to tight end Rob Gronkowski, in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers dominating Super Bowl win over the Kansas City Chiefs.
It was a sublime performance, filled with dinks and dunks — and plenty of help from a Kansas City defense that imploded with eight first-half penalties, all of them critical, as Tampa Bay rolled to a 21-6 lead.
Brady earned his fifth Super Bowl MVP award.
