Tom Brady reached his tenth Super Bowl on Sunday.
The 43-year-old quarterback led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a convincing 31:26 win over the Green Bay Packers. This will make the Bucs the first team to play in the Super Bowl in their own stadium next month.
Brady becomes the oldest player in any position to play in a Super Bowl.
“It’s great to get another road win and now we have a home game,” said Brady, who went 20 of 36 with three touchdowns 280 yards long. “Who would have thought of a home Super Bowl for us? But we did it. ‘
Brady is in his freshman year at Tampa Bay, having made that stage nine times with the New England Patriots. Tom Brady was the face of the Patriots for two decades before leaving the club in March last year.
He moved to Tampa as a free agent after signing a two-year $ 50 million deal with the Bucs and brought Rob Gronkowski out of retirement to join him.
After his victory, the wife of the six-time Super Bowl champion, Gisele Bündchen, shared a clip of herself and her daughter Vivian, 8; and son Benjamin, 11, in their Tampa Bay Buccaneer jerseys.
Bündchen – with 27.3 million social media followers – raved: “We’re already cheering Papai here! We love you! Let’s go @tombrady! Let’s go Bucs! ‘She later triumphed tweeted: ‘Yeeeeeah Super Bowl here we come!’ Bündchen also has a close-up of his face titled “@tombrady we love and are so proud of you papai!”
Buccaneer’s trainer Bruce Arians said: “The belief he gave everyone in this organization that this is possible only took one man.”
The Bucs will face the Kansas City Chiefs on February 7th.

‘We’re already cheering here papai! We love you!’ The 43-year-old wife of the six-time Super Bowl champion, Gisele Bündchen, shared a clip of herself and her daughter Vivian, 8; and son Benjamin, 11; show their pride in Tampa Bay Buccaneer jerseys
After the Bucs defeated the Green Bay Packers 31:26, Gisele tweeted triumphantly: “Yeeeeeah Super Bowl, here we come!”
“Tom is the GOAT (the greatest of all time),” said Bucs receiver Scotty Miller, who caught a 39-yard touchdown pass by a second to half-time. ‘Last year we finished 7-9. This year we’re going to the Super Bowl. He’s the biggest reason. ‘
Brady is set to compete in his tenth Super Bowl next month – that’s more appearances than31 of the 32 teams in the NFL have ever done.
He made Super Bowl four out of the last five seasons; It is his third since he was 40 years old.
Brady’s ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan also congratulated him on Instagram: “Couldn’t be prouder, @tombrady said he would and he did.”
The Cali-born quarterback ended his two-year relationship with the 49-year-old Blue Bloods actress in December 2006 – the same month he went on a blind date with Gisele at the West Village, Turks & Frogs wine bar.
Bridget welcomed her 13-year-old son John Edward eight months later, and Tom has been happily married to Bündchen for 11 years.
Brady and his supermodel wife Bundchen, a four-time Super Bowl Most Valuable Player and three-time league MVP, sold their homes in New York City and Massachusetts this month while consolidating their homes to prepare for the move to the Billionaire’s Bunker in Miami to prepare.
The couple sold their New York apartment for $ 37 million to a Connecticut-based financier, the New York Post reported. Even though they sold that apartment, Brady and Bundchen still have a unit in the same building that they’re holding onto.
Confirmation of the sale of the larger apartment came 11 days after the couple sold the Massachusetts home they lived in while Brady was quarterback for the New England Patriots.

The couple reportedly bought a property in Miami’s exclusive Indian Creek Island community, where model Karlie Kloss and her husband Joshua Kushner, brother Jared Kushner and wife Ivanka Trump will be their neighbors.
According to the New York Post, Tom and Bundchen paid $ 17 million for the Florida property they are currently demolishing. In its place they are building an environmentally friendly dream home.
Indian Creek is a 300 acre island in Florida’s Biscayne Bay known as the Billionaire’s Bunker. It is monitored by a security guard of 13 who watch the edge of the island.
There are about 30 houses on the island, in the center of which are one of the most exclusive country clubs in Florida and an 18-hole golf course.
Brady has long been known to be friends with Ivanka’s father, former President Donald Trump, after meeting in 2001.
Brady told Howard Stern in April 2020 that his friendship with Trump led him to be asked about politics he didn’t want to discuss while Trump fought for president in 2016.
“I was uncomfortable,” Brady said, according to Yahoo Sports, adding, “You can’t undo things – not that I would undo a friendship – but political support is very different from support from a friend.”
In a social media post that confirmed he would leave the Patriots last year, Brady paid tribute to his fans and teammates, as well as Patriot owners Robert Kraft and Bill Belichick, the only coach he’d played for as a pro .
“Although my football trip will take place elsewhere, I appreciate everything we have achieved and I am grateful for our incredible TEAM performance,” he wrote in a statement on social media. “I was privileged to have had the opportunity to know each of you and have the memories we made together.”
Brady, who was elected sixth round in the 2000 NFL Draft, was a backup quarterback until an injury to Drew Bledsoe in 2001 put him in the role of starter. That season ended with an unlikely Super Bowl run and a surprise for the heavily favored St. Louis Rams to win the franchise’s first NFL title.
Brady left the Patriots second in NFL history, overtaking touchdowns (541) and yards (74,571). Only eleven-time NBA champion and Boston Celtics legend Bill Russell has had more success in professional sport in the New England area than Brady.
He and Belichick are also the most successful coach-quarterback duo with 219 wins, 30 postseason wins and of course their six Super Bowl titles.
Brady throws an interception under pressure from the Green Bay Packers’ Darnell Savage
On Sunday, the Bucs were never behind in an exciting match, a classic game of two halves.
They got a head start at halftime after Arians was rewarded for a brave phone call. With 13 seconds on the clock, they converted to fourth and fourth places. In the next game, Brady revealed some terrible coverage and tossed a stunning 39-yard touchdown pass to Scotty Miller. It turned a four-point game into a 21-10 advantage.
“We’re coming home,” said Bucs manager Bruce Arians on Sunday. “We’re coming home to win.”
Brady extended the lead to 18 points shortly after the break, with a touchdown pass of eight yards for Cameron Brate.
When the Tampa Bay defense stifled Green Bay’s ground game, quarterback Aaron Rodgers took his team on their backs.
The MVP-elect threw two touchdowns in the third quarter and suddenly the Packers were within five points. Rodgers, who is now 1-4 in conference title games, was stellar, completing 33 of 48 passes for 346 yards.
And with Brady and his stuttering offense – he threw interceptions on three straight runs for the first time in his career – Green Bay seemed to have the game under control.
After a field goal from Ryan Succop (31:23) they sat deep in the Tampa area. But on the fourth and one from the eight-yard line, head coach Matt LaFleur made the astounding decision to score a field goal just over two minutes ahead.
Led by Brady, a master at emptying the clock, the Bucs did just that. With this, Brady can fight for his seventh Super Bowl title. If he wins, it will be more than in New England.
