NFL: Super Bowl LV-Kansas City Chiefs vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NFL. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged-in New Orleans Saints fans and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers shocked most of the NFL world with a dominant win over Kansas City in Super Bowl LV. After the game, a majority of fans are quick to credit Brady for his accomplishments, even if they weren’t the most impressive of the night.

According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts, following his seventh Super Bowl championship, nearly two-thirds of fans believe Brady is the greatest player in NFL history.

While the final score made the game look like a blowout, there was a stretch where it felt like Kansas City could get back into the game. But after numerous penalties hurt the Chiefs, things changed quickly.

But most fans believe those flags were earned, or if nothing else, didn’t change the outcome. 64 percent of fans said the Buccaneers win didn’t come as a result of the refs.

The biggest factor in the game was seemingly the dominating defensive performance against Patrick Mahomes. Nearly a full 100 percent of fans believe the Buccaneers’ defense was even more impressive than their offense.

Despite siding with the defense, a slight majority of fans still believe Brady deserved his MVP award. The Brady-love is obvious, even outside of the Tampa Bay and New England fanbases.
