The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will make NFL history after beating the Green Bay Packers 31-26 Sunday in the NFC Championship Game.
With Super LV set to take place at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium, the Bucs will now become the first team in history to play for the Lombardi Trophy in their home stadium.
“So many teams don’t get a chance because they don’t get the Super Bowl in their stadium,” Bucs head coach Bruce Arians said after Sunday’s win. “It was obviously the goal of ours to start the season, but getting to the Super Bowl wasn’t what our goal is. Our goal is to win it.”
This was a fun storyline throughout the offseason, following the signing of Tom Brady and the trade that brought Rob Gronkowski out of retirement. Now, it’s a reality for Brady and the Bucs, who have a chance to finish their incredible playoff run with the ultimate prize.
