At one point, he talked some trash to Kansas City Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu.

The Chiefs, who are the defending champs, came into the game slightly favored. However, they fell behind early as Brady didn’t take long to start working his usual magic.
Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes never really got into his usual rhythm in the first half, as Tampa Bay consistently applied pressure.
Penalties also killed Kansas City throughout the first half. Two key pass interference calls help set up a Tampa Bay touchdown by wide receiver Antonio Brown shortly before halftime that gave the Bucs a 21-6 lead.
Tampa Bay then extended the lead to 31-9 in the third quarter. Mahomes and the Chiefs will have their work cut out for them if they are to repeat as Super Bowl champs.
