For 17th Straight Year, There Won’t Be Repeat Super Bowl Champion

When Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers got bounced by the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, it kept alive a Super Bowl streak.

And that would be that no team has repeated as champion since Brady and the New England Patriots did it way back in 2003 and ’04.

Basically, Brady has been involved in a couple of streaks. The first, of course, being that he was the last QB to win back-to-back titles. So he won’t be able to repeat it.

The other came in December, when the Buccaneers suffered a shutout loss to the New Orleans Saints. That was the first shutout of a Brady-led team since 2006.

Now, everyone is left to wonder whether Brady will be back to try again. As OutKick’s Armando Salguero wrote, there appears to be a chance that Brady will hang up his cleats and call it a (remarkable) career.

“I haven’t put a lot of thought into it so I’ll take it day by day and we’ll see where we’re at,” Brady said.

Basically, his future remains a mystery. But his shot at yet another title, at least this season, has already been determined.
