KEY POINTS

  • Tom Brady has no plans of slowing down as he eyes more Super Bowl titles
  • The New England Patriots hail Brady as the greatest of all time
  • The Brady-Gronkowski tandem will remain at least for one more season

For the seventh time, Tom Brady is a Super Bowl champion.

He was a key figure in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Super Bowl LV conquest, dominating the Kansas City Chiefs, 31-9, at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.

It was the second Super Bowl championship for the Buccs, the first one happening in 2002 at Super Bowl XXXVII.

Making it sweeter for Brady is that he was named the Super Bowl LV Most Valuable Player, the fifth of his illustrious NFL career. He completed 21-of-29 passes for 201 yards and three touchdowns.

Brady threw 40 touchdowns, a franchise-record and the second-best mark of the three-time NFL MVP.

With the feat, Brady got some vindication when most had practically written him off. He left the New England Patriots in what most saw as a risky move considering he is already in his 40s.

The Buccs were willing to take a chance and the investment has paid off.

But of course, Brady did not do it alone. Another former Patriot in Rob Gronkowski also showcased his fine form, demonstrating that he too has the hunger to win more Super Bowl titles moving forward.

At least for one more year, the Brady and Gronkowski duo will continue.

Brady vowed he would be back next NFL season and target another Super Bowl title.

"Yep, we're coming back,” Brady said to CBS Sports Network reporter Tracy Wolfson. "Better believe it."

Brady’s achievement drew praise from social media. Some who hailed the 43-year-old include former Patriots teammates. But one tweet that most are likely to sensationalize was the one from the Pats Twitter account.

The name of Brady was not specifically mentioned although the “greatest of all time” clearly points to the player who spent 20 years with the team. So what lies ahead?

For now, Brady, Gronkowski, and the rest of the Buccs will savor their Super Bowl LV triumph. Things are looking good for the next season with most of the players like wide receiver Chris Godwin possibly sticking around under the franchise tag, the NFL Network reported.

There is also Antonio Brown and Leonard Fournette who are likely to be back, meaning Brady may have the championship core back.

However, this still depends on what happens in NFL free agency with key names set to hit the market.
