Tom Brady has been to the Super Bowl ten times in his 21-year career, and this year he has been considered the underdog to make the Super Bowl. Shoot last week the Buccaneers were not even favored to beat the Green Bay Packers.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers upset the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship to advance to Super Bowl 55, and while it was not the prettiest game of Tom Brady’s career, he found a way to pull off the win.
This year, Brady is still considered the underdog to win the Super Bowl, and get this he has some major advantages. I mean the Super Bowl is going to be played in Tampa, Florida. Yes, that is right, Tom Brady will be the first quarterback ever to play the Super Bowl at his home stadium.
The Buccaneers are playing great football right now, but they will face the red-hot Kansas City Chiefs, led by Patrick Mahomes.
Last week, the Kansas City Chiefs dominated the Buffalo Bills, booking a ticket to their second straight Super Bowl. Kansas City has opened as the favorite in Super Bowl 55, even though they are on the road.
This is the third straight year the Chiefs played in the AFC Championship game and many believe the Buccaneers will not have a shot against the Chiefs. Even the Super Bowl 55 Odds for Chiefs vs Bucs favor Kansas City.
While Tom Brady is the underdog here, it is not the first time that has happened. He has actually been an underdog 8 times in his playoff career, and Brady is not going to lay down. He is actually 4-3 both straight up and against the spread heading into his 8th game as an underdog.
Tom Brady knows about being an underdog better than anyone. His story is insane. He was actually benched at Michigan. He was projected to be a third-round draft pick and lasted until the 199th pick in the NFL Draft. Brady then finally received a shot to play when Drew Bledsoe suffered an injury.
When you look at Tom Brady’s story it is what you would root for in a Super Bowl, there is only one problem. He is the greatest now to ever do it. No one likes to see a player continually win the Super Bowl. Tom Brady is no pushover, but this week the G.O.A.T (Greatest of All-Time) will take on the kid (a baby goat) in Patrick Mahomes. We may be witnessing the two greatest players playing the game.
The only thing, is will Tom Brady continue to win as an underdog? We will soon find out.
