If you are going to make a dangerous throw, who higher to ask than Brady? The five-time Super Bowl MVP — who accomplished 21 of 29 passes for 201 yards and three scores within the 31-9 win over the Chiefs — was just about on the cash. That stated, the trophy was a bit of wobbly within the air; it is perhaps finest to hold it grounded after that flight. Tampa Bay solely has one different in inventory, in any case.
Hey, if you’ve received the Super Bowl as many instances as Brady has — that is seven, for these not counting — foolish little issues just like the Lombardi Trophy have a tendency to lose their significance.
