Tom Brady leads Buccaneers past Packers, advances to 10th Super Bowl
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady completed 20-of-36 passes for 280 yards with 3 touchdowns and 3 interceptions in a 31-26, NFC Championship Game win over the Green Bay Packers.
Brady will make his unprecedented 10th Super Bowl appearance and the Buccaneers will become the first team to ever compete for the Lombardi Trophy in their home stadium when they square off with the Kansas City Chiefs in two weeks. All three of Brady's interceptions came in the second half but Aaron Rodgers and the Packers failed to take advantage. When the Buccaneers faced the Chiefs in Week 12, Brady completed 65.9 percent of his attempts for 345 yards with 3 touchdowns and 2 interceptions.
Brady scored 20.1 FanDuel points in the NFC Championship Game. His adjusted completion rate has fallen 6.5 percent to 68.6 over three playoff games, the second-lowest rate among all quarterbacks this postseason. The Chiefs allowed the league's fourth-lowest completion rate during the regular season.
