There is no other place like home.
And for Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, that’s where they will be for the Super Bowl LV.
The Tampa Bay NFC Championship ended with a 31-26 victory over the Green Bay Packers, meaning the Bookers will be the first team in NFL history to play in a Super Bowl at their home stadium.
Brady completed 36 for 20 with 280 passing yards, three touchdown passes, and three interceptions. All three breaks came in the second half and allowed the Packers to return to the game.
Brady will be looking for his seventh Super Bowl ring, more than the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers in their voting history.
The Super Bowl will be played on February 7 at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. Only two other Super Bowls have been held at the stadium before.
During their eight home games in 2020, the Bookers averaged just 14,483 fans, apparently due to the corona virus epidemic. They only had about 22% of their stadium full.
The NFL has announced that it intends to have 22,000 spectators in the Super Bowl. Fans are expected to be in the beans at a distance of 6 feet, and the game will clearly require a mask. Local COVID-19 security protocols will be implemented.
