The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are Super Bowl Champions. They also became the first team in NFL history to host a Super Bowl and win a Super Bowl in their own stadium as they beat the Kansas City Chiefs emphatically by a score of 31-9 on Sunday. The Bucs won in a lopsided game by dominating on both sides of the ball from start to finish while Tom Brady won MVP by throwing for three touchdowns. But arguably the most important part of the game was the Bucs’ defense, holding the Chiefs without a touchdown in the contest.
It was a complete team effort on the defensive of the ball to contribute in making the Bucs Super Bowl Champions. Here are the most impressive players from Super Bowl LV.
OLB Shaq Barrett
The key to the Bucs winning the game was getting a four-man pass rush on Patrick Mahomes, and no one got a better rush in the game than Shaq Barrett. He delivered on the high expectations that many had for him facing a backup offensive tackle. The pressure started early on and Barrett kept it throughout the whole game while forcing many errant throws and recording a sack along the way.
White has loved playing in these big games as he’s continued to be one of the driving forces for the Bucs’ defense and you could see him make his mark, going full speed to make a play. Arguably, you could say White’s trash talk with the team was his best contribution as no one on the Bucs’ defense was more vocal than him. He ended the game first on the team in total tackles once again with 12, while also leading the defense with two tackles for loss. White ultimately finished the game near the end of regulation with an interception to close out the Bucs’ Super Bowl win.
