Spectacular! Is one of the many names one can use to describe the Super Bowl 55 as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs battled it up for the title at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
Though it was different from the previous Super Bowl finals as this year attendance was the smallest in the Super Bowl history, with 25,000 people and 30,000 cutouts.
Earlier on, the NFL had stated that only 22,500 people would be permitted to attend the Super Bowl 55, but increased the numbers to 25,000 and issued free tickets to approximately 7,500 vaccinated health care workers.
At the start of the 2020 season, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many players feared for their lives and their families as the virus is airborne. The NFL had to come up with various contingency plans to ensure the players, coaches, staffs, and the communities health safeness as the season kicked-off amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, they offered players the opt-out option and gave them stipends depending on whether they opted-out voluntarily or were high-risk.
To be sincere, they faced many challenges as the 32-teams in the leagues recorded outbreaks in their organizations, threatening the 2020 season from its completion. Still, the NFL introduced another contingency plan where they postponed games for a later date to evade the premature ending of the season.
Fans were banned from attending games in the stadiums to curb the spread of the coronavirus though both the Buccaneers and the Chiefs fans were privileged to participate in their team’s games throughout the 2020 season but in small numbers.
Fifteen thousand nine hundred fifty fans were in attendance when the buccaneers hosted the Kansas City Chiefs during their Week 12 game. The Chiefs emerged victorious (27-24) in a tight contested match with the Buccaneers recording their last time lost this season. And, they went ahead to win all their seven straight games to reach the Super Bowl LV.
There must be only one winner in every final game despite how both teams portray incredible skills and an unending showdown. In the Super Bowl 55, the Kansas City Chiefs were no match for the Buccaneers as they were outplayed 31-9 at the Raymond James Stadium.
Tom Brady now has 21 career touchdowns passes topping up on the list, with second-place Joe Montana falling short with 11 and third place Terry Bradshaw with 9.
Brady is the greatest of all time and comes to think of it at the age of 43, he has just won his 7th title, 6 titles while playing with the New England Patriots and now in his first year with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and helping them clinch their second Super Bowl title in the history of the franchise. Kansas City Chiefs former league MVP Patrick Mahomes looked like a mere mortal as the Buccaneers defense were impenetrable with Tom Brady showcasing the most efficient Super Bowl performance of his 21-year NFL career.
