Tampa Bay reaches Super Bowl
Brady wins the legend duel
Tom Brady is in the Super Bowl with his Buccaneers. In the semi-final win against the Green Bay Packers, the 43-year-old dominated with precise throws, especially at the beginning. Quarterback star Aaron Rodgers is also powerless against this.
Football star Tom Brady won the duel of the quarterback legends against Aaron Rodgers in the US professional league NFL and destroyed Equanimeous St. Brown's dream of the Super Bowl. Brady led his Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the play-off semifinals to a 31:26 against the Green Bay Packers around the German wide receiver St. Brown, the playmaker is now in the final for the tenth time.
Brady, who moved south in the summer after 20 years and six titles with the New England Patriots, will be playing with the Buccaneers on February 7th in Tampa, Florida as the first team for the Vince Lombardi Trophy in their own stadium. In Super Bowl LV (55) it goes against defending champion Kansas City Chiefs or the Buffalo Bills.
After Markus Koch, Sebastian Vollmer and Mark Nzeocha, St. Brown could have made it into the Super Bowl as the fourth German. But nothing came of it. The 24-year-old was searched twice by Rodgers, caught a 10-yard pass for a first down, but couldn't control the ball in the end zone and missed the great chance of a two-point conversion. Tampa is in the final for the second time after the only triumph so far in 2003. For the first time since 2007/08, the team made it back to the championship round with new signing Brady this season.
In the first play-off duel of the star quarterbacks, Brady initially dominated with precise throws. Only at the end of the third quarter could the Packers make it exciting again after being 18 points behind (23:28), Brady wobbled and threw three interceptions. Bucs kicker Ryan Succop made it 31:23 with a field goal in the final phase, Green Bay also only reduced the field by three points.
