Tom Brady, Bucs outlast Packers for Super Bowl berth

Tom Brady, Bucs outlast Packers for Super Bowl berth

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady is going to his 10th Super Bowl after the Bucs got past Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in the NFC championship game.

The Buccaneers’ road magic has them heading home to the Super Bowl in Tampa, the first team to play in one on their home field.

Brady owns six Super Bowl rings with New England and now heads to his 10th NFL championship game with his new team. With help from a stifling pass rush led by Shaquil Barrett and Jason Pierre-Paul combining for five sacks, and a curious late call by the Packers, Brady and the Bucs beat top-seeded Green Bay 31-26 for the NFC title Sunday.

The Bucs (14-5) earned their franchise-record eighth consecutive road victory to reach the Super Bowl for the first time since their 2002 championship season.

They were helped by a strange decision by Packers coach Matt LaFleur with just over two minutes remaining and down by five points. On fourth-and-goal, he elected to kick a field goal. Tampa Bay then ran out the clock on the Packers.
