Tom Brady named Super Bowl LV MVP, announces plans for 2021 NFL season
For the seventh time in his NFL career, Tom Brady is a Super Bowl champion. And for the fifth time, he’s holding a Super Bowl MVP honor.
Brady was named the Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl LV on Sunday night after leading Tampa Bay to a 31-9 victory over Kansas City. The quarterback had an outstanding night, completing 21-of-29 passes for 201 yards and 3 touchdowns in the victory, closing out his first season with the Buccaneers with a championship.
Sunday was Brady’s 10th appearance in a Super Bowl, but this marked his first with the Bucs.

Most of the work Brady did in the Super Bowl came in the 1st half. He completed 16-of-20 passes for 140 yards and 3 touchdowns, building a 21-6 lead heading into the locker room. He completed just 5 passes for 61 yards in the final 30 minutes, but it was more than enough to get the Buccaneers a victory.
Brady may have secured his seventh Super Bowl ring and fifth Super Bowl MVP honor, but is that enough to make him walk away from the game? Not yet. After the game, the legendary QB confirmed that he’s coming back for at least another season with the Buccaneers.
“We’ll be back next year,” Brady said after the game.
Next year, Brady will be pushing to make his 11th Super Bowl and get ring No. 8. Maybe he’ll add another Super Bowl MVP honor to that list, too.
