For the second time in franchise history, the Buccaneers became World Champions. A season that was played in front of limited crowds due to covid restrictions but one that ended with a Vince Lombardi Trophy being lifted into the sky at Raymond James Stadium, the Bucs also becoming the first team to ever play in the Super Bowl in their home stadium. The arrival of Tom Brady to lead the team made the Buccaneers the big story in the NFL throughout the year but another excellent draft and free agent signings made the roster ready for the first playoff run since 2007. Three straight road wins took Tampa Bay into Super Bowl LV where a superb defensive effort handled the Kansas City Chiefs with Brady earning another MVP trophy.
