Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady’s seventh Super Bowl title, captured with a 31-9 win over the defending champion Chiefs, has also come with his fifth Super Bowl MVP award.

The 43-year-old Brady’s latest MVP performance featured a 21-for-29 line with 201 passing yards and three touchdowns, with Brady’s first two scores coming on hookups with Rob Gronkowski before a one-yard toss to Antonio Brown. Brady’s Super Bowl LV performance also included a 125.8 quarterback rating, which was the highest in any of his 10 Super Bowl appearances.

It may not have been on the same level as previous Super Bowl MVP wins for the undeniable GOAT — Brady was also named MVP of Super Bowl XXXVI, Super Bowl XXXVIII, Super Bowl XLIX, and Super Bowl LI — but there’s no denying that Brady was money when the Bucs needed him to be.

In what many expected to a shootout with the Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes, Brady’s Bucs pounced on Kansas City early, had their defense spinning, and simply beat the fight out of them with multiple key conversions.

And for your hilarious stat of the night: Brady now has more Super Bowl MVP awards than any other quarterback has Super Bowl wins.
